Pretty Good

I used to love this place but I realized it's not really Mexican. They have some healthy options which is great.

There are great choices for vegetarians - tofu is available and cooked to my liking! The Naked Fajita Bowl with tofu instead of chicken is filling and has lower calorie ingredients. The chips at Sharky's have a spritz of lime and a light salting making them addicting. I always go with the best intentions of eating light, but my son... More

Very basic fast food Mexican, with so many other choices in the area it's hard to believe we chose this place.

Came here one afternoon and it was just an ok experience. The price for what you get is a biut expensive and the food was just blah. It wasn't busy at all i think one other couple was in there at the time, food took forever for the small order we got. There salsa bar is not good either. Plus... More

When living in Aliso Viejo, I could walk to this place and did often. I love that everything is fresh and organic. Menu items I've had: The Original Tacos Tofu & Veggie Tacos Fiesta Burrito no dairy Naked Tostada Salad with Tofu, no dairy - my favorite by far and my only complaint is that they never put enough beans...

Was in Aliso Viejo on business and decided to drop in for some Mexican food. Looks like a chain from the inside but the menu selections - including vegetarian - speak otherwise. I had a tofu burrito that was surprisingly good. The salsa bar has a wide variety of offerings from mild to very hot. I live on the East... More

Wanted some quick, healthy, Mexican food one Saturday afternoon. I had not been to a Sharky's in years and decided to give it a try. I ordered the Charbroiled Mahi Mahi Burrito. It was excellent and very big. The fish was cooked perfectly and was combined with great ingredients in the burrito. I will return.

We love Sharky's for a quick dinner on a busy day. The tofu is well seasoned and has a great consistency. The tomatillo salsa is so tangy. Lots of outdoor seating.
