Good Food At A Reasonable Price

Always a good place to eat at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is good. Restaurant is clean. They bring the food out to you.

Had tacos that were ok. Loved that they were soft corn tortillas and not flour. Rice and black beans very good. Used to re fried rice with Mexican. White rice was nice chane of pace. Apparently good place to take young kids they were all over.

Based on the positive reviews in this forum and the close proximity by hotel I thought I would try one is for dinner. Blackened fish tacos with a side of black beans and rice were very good. Service was good and I was able to sit at an outside patio - very pleasant.

Wahoo's has been doing fresh grilled fish tacos and burritos for 20 years, and their place in Lake Forest stays consistent to their commitment to quality and authenticity. Try the fish blackened and get the Cajun white beans to spice things up even more.

Huge burrito was very good. Took a few minutes to prepare, but it was outstanding. Price is a little high, but it's worth it. Much better than the tacos I've had at Wahoo's before.

Whats is there not to like about Wahoo's. The employees are wonderful. Always friendly! Great atmosphere and the price value is exceptional. The Polynesian Shrimp Bowl is my favorite as well as the Tortilla Soup. The dining room is always clean and they also have outside seating. Great for families.

Experiencing a Wahoo's meal is an absolute MUST DO. I have been to many, many Wahoo's from Santa Barbara to San Diego. I brake for Wahoo's! Tasty meals, every one. While I prefer some locations, ambiance and service over others, (my favorites: Costa Mesa and Irvine) I will always pick a Wahoo's over just about any other restaurant. It fits... More

I've been going to Wahoo's for years & I absolutely love it. Their fish tacos are always a great choice. I also enjoy the carnitas tacos. The addition of brown rice to the menu is a nice alternative. I eat here often and recommend it to all. Even if you don't like fish tacos there are many other options to... More

The food wasn't amazing and when I ordered they forgot to give me one of the items. They were not rude about it but they weren't apologetic about it either.
