Sometimes all you need is a good street taco to be happy. Sharky's is the place to satisfy that craving. Well seasoned meat and a nice condiment bar. Pleasant, clean covered patio to enjoy the real deal.

I was working and staying nearby for 8 days and walked to Sharky's for 5 lunches. The food came out fast. The seating is outdoor in a shady area. I enjoyed the food. It tasted fresh. I will definitely visit again when in the area.

Great food, fresh, great service. The food has an authentic taste, and they are always trying something new. The camaron caribe is the best, the tostada de jaiba is also one of their best dishes

The restaurant looks a bit like a shack on the side of the road, but the food is definitely worth stopping by. You have to order from a window on the side of the building, but then they have an area with picnic tables to...More

A good friend recommended the Taco Tuesday Special -- 3 Fish Tacos for $5. I tried them, and they were WONDERFUL! Delicious, and a great value! As other reviews have pointed out -- Sharky's only offers window service, with an patio dining area. It was...More

My father-in-law is vegetarian and was able to find items on the menu that he was able to eat. I can't recall what he ordered, but I hope that helps.
