You won't be knocked over by the food but it's OK and inexpensive. Tacos were pretty good and the bowls looked even better. My kale salad was pretty uninspired but just fine for a quick lunch. The funky, laid back vibe of the place is really comfortable so we would return again and try other things on the menu.

The vibe was cool. The location is really good, right off Manhattan Beach. The people were nice. The food, however was really really bland. The steak was dry and the chicken was flavorless. There are better food stop around.

If you are running from several days eating only burgers and pizzas, this could be the better option for you. Here you can have all the traditional Mexican food, not too spicy, besides rice and beans weel cooked with meat, chicken or fish. It is perfect for small kids when they need a real meal after several days full of... More

Lots of interesting choices on the menu at this colorful Mexican lunch spot. Despite the intriguing descriptions, food is rather ordinary (sauces are somewhat bland, even when spicey), but it's fresh, affordable and fairly quick. A reasonable choice for lunch on the run. The place was hopping, and seems to be popular with locals and tourists alike.

We're from the east coast and really wanted a good fish taco. We found them here at the Manhattan beach location. I got the fish tacos with the citrus slaw (the way to go) and my daughter got the rice bowl with steak plus guacamole which she loved. This place gave us wholesome food, which is sometimes hard to come... More

This is a chain restaurant, and so you already know the menu and what to expect. It's a clean restaurant, and the staff was friendly the day we went.

I live in Manhattan Beach and I have eaten there once a week for the last few years. Great service, good healthy food at a reasonable price. Never been disappointed.

I always go to Wahoo's when I'm in town. They introduced this midwest guy to fish taco's and are still some of the best. Now that I've had them so often I taylor mine with more spice, but that's how a lot of mexican style food is. So, experiment with these cheap and good taco's and find your happy place!
