I've been for lunch a few times since I live nearby. The food options are a little odd. The barbecue is just average as is the sushi. It also smells a little musty in here. The miso soup is wildly variable, from very good to awful. It is entertaining to sit at the bar and watch music videos and sports... More

We stopped here on a Sunday for lunch and it wasn't packed. Our waiter was great and friendly. We ordered the California Crunchy, the Big Dipper and Real Deal Turkey Sandwich with garlic fries. My son devoured the CA Crunchy. The sandwiches were quite tasty and I had to bring half of the turkey sandwich home as it was very... More

Stopped is for a post-massage drink or two. Ample 5 ounce pours of the happy hour wines will run you $5 and the nine ounce pours set you back $7. Lots of food available, and while we had none the menu looked promising. If you're touring and want a libation break, you'll do well here.

I enjoy watching DDD so when we went to Santa Rosa on a business trip we had to try Tex Wasabi. We are not much a meat people so we got a couple of sushi rolls. I have to say I have had better. The only thing that was really good were to 2 tuna appetizer tacos. They were so... More

I've been to Tex Wasabi's several times over the years and I finally realized it's not really that good. I would think our local Guy Fieri could do better..his cookbooks are killer!!

Everything I have ordered here has been great, try the Vegas fries. Also try the hog tied sushi. I don't have any complaints, I am surprised to see the negative reviews. Seriously have never had a bad meal here or bad service!

We were so excited to be able to get a table here only to find out where the locals know- not to eat here! His reputation far outstrips the quality of food. The sushi was OK, nothing great, in fact, my local grocery store does a better roll! The hamburgers were huge and had interesting toppings, but the meat itself... More

One of the most exciting menus I have ever seen in a texmex fusion restaurant, but they just can't seem to pull it off. The food was surprisingly bland, although far from bad. After some of their high powered cocktails the food is probably much better!

I would have never chosen Tex Wasabi's on my own and was suspicious about the quality having had a poor experience at Guy Fieri's other restaurant "Johny Garlic's," not to mention the unlikely combination of cuisines offered. Our friends chose the place so went along prepared for the worst. As one would expect the menu is a mix of classic... More

We visited with high hopes given the celebrity owner and generally good reviews. Our expectations were not met. Food: It’s an odd mix (e.g. BBQ plus sushi). I had the ribs. They were very good. The rest of my party was underwhelmed with their meals. We tried their big drink...a bowla. Expensive but strong. It was good. Ambiance: Expect BBQ... More
