Brightly light, canteen vibe restaurant. Hearty portions of tacos, rice, beans. The nachos are thickly cheesy and heavy. The food is what you would expect and there is a fun vibe to the place. This is not health food. But it's tasty. The fish in the tacos was a little overcooked, other than that it's an enjoyable place to hang... More

We came here after a surf trip to El Porto with a new beginner from Norway, looking for lunch which fit our desire for tacos, variation, and specialty. (Meeting the dietary needs of our party) So we were surprised to find that we met all three needs. We had tacos, bowls and a burrito dish. My bowl was very good,... More

We had a quick dinner here - a fish burrito and wahoo bowl. We were visiting LA and shocked that no fresh veg accompanied these foods. Where was the pico de gallo? The bowl had sautéed cabbage and a sad combination of peppers. My burrito was so bland. I think we ordered wrong. However, service was good and quick.

I am so glad we stopped here for lunch while in Manhattan Beach. I love fish tacos so I was looking forward to trying them here. I was surprised how low their prices were. We ordered the fish tacos. Really good! The restaurant is pretty cool with all the boards and posters on the walls. They also had a good... More

Stopped in for lunch one weekday. Service was fast, staff was friendly and attentive and the tacos were fabulous ! Not a fancy place, but a good beach place with good food at a great value.

Among the best fish tacos I have had and at a great price. Not a big place, not fancy, but delicious and laid back. Highly recommended.

...and surprisingly large chunks of fish. I ordered the citrus tacos and these were very tasty, appealing. The prices are quite good as well. The place was fairly busy, as it was lunchtime, and it appeared to have a lot of locals eating there. Only 1 block up the hill from the beach.

My brother took me here while visiting the LA area. He is a former CA resident and said he'd been trying to get back to this restaurant for about 5 years. OMG, the food here is wicked rico! Had the steak enchiladas with green sauce with chips and guac. Wow, it was amazing. More than worth the 10 bones I... More

I thought I would try to new Wahoo's Fish Taco that was open. Have to say I still prefer Rubio's Fish Tacos. Possibly it's just that I've been accustomed to Rubio's... Doubt I will return again.
