Came here with friends, and a break from eating alone while on my bus. trip. Can't believe that when I went to VC across the street I never ate here (probably good reason, it gets expensive and it isn't super healthy). I love fish tacos, and this place didn't disappoint. I got the grilled ones, and it still tasted as... More

Snapper Jacks is a local favorite for fish tacos. Though billed as a Mexican restaurant I wouldn't call the food authenic Mexican. Their secret shack sauce is mayo based and nothing is very spicy or has great depth of flavor. That being said, I do enjoy what they do offer. The fish taco is tasty as well as the potato... More

I've never had a bad meal here. I brought my out-of-town sister here and now she MUST eat at Snapper Jack's every time she visits, instead of dining at the harbor. She loves the chicken quesadillas. Snapper Jack's is addicting. My husband and I usually order grilled fish tacos (not battered fish) served in fried flour tortillas. Wow. Their "secret"... More

I love snappers, their salsa bar is the best. Try the fruit salsa! The potato tacos and all the fish tacos are a true ventuckian experience, coming from a local. The special sauce rocks. I just wish I could tip the employees cause the manager was really awkward about me tying to leave a tip to people who deserve it.

Yummy fish tacos, but it's the sauces that I most look forward to! Delicious salsas and sauces - I always try them all. The shack sauce is good on everything. I make a point to come here whenever I am in town!

This is a few steps above your normal Mexican Fish Taco Stands! They serve the basic Mexican Specialties but do a better job of it! Very Good Burritos & Tostado's...but Our favorites are the Shrimp Tacos fried or grilled on Corn or flour tortilla's...Really tasty....Also my wife's a vegan and she loves what they do with the veggies on all...

This place was recommended by a friend. He said they have the best salsa bar ever. Being vegetarian/vegan for many years, I'm always looking for something unique and different that offers something other than veggie burgers or your typical burrito. I have had their potato burrito twice now and I really like it. As far as the salsa bar goes,... More

Broiled or fried....your fish tacos are waiting for you. Excellent salsas to choose from including a habanero that has a great bite. Best fish tacos are found in Maui but for a local spot in Ventura County, this place is a winner!
