First Visit Good, would visit again

I tried one shrimp and one grilled fish taco. They were reasonably tasty. Portions were good size, refried beans nice, rice ambivalent. Salsa bar good as most reviews state. Hot salsa was relatively hot, which is good as I like spicy. Good variety of salsa as well. I will give it another go... read more

Took family for daughters soccer tournament at the college & ate here since it was close. Very good & fresh food with reasonable pricing! I had grilled fish tacos, hubby had nachos, kids had taquitos, reg tacos & salad... All very good! ( yes I tasted everyone's plate). I highly recommend if you are in the area. Oh & salsa... More

This place has the best tacos! I always get chicken, my husband gets some kind of fish, my kids get a variety. The prices are reasonable. Our favorite feature though, has to be the salsa bar. SJ has some of the best salsas I've ever tasted. I always over eat tortilla chips just to have all the salsas. No matter... More

Best fish tacos and friendly staff. Always clean and just hours the spot. Ventura live it and so do I. Love to stop on my #venturavisits. Thanks, Jack!

We love this place! One of our back pocket favorites. Pick a taco, any taco and it will be awesome. The salsa bar is often the highlight of our meal prep. So many choices! The Shack Sauce is a must for any newbies. The fish tacos are superb. Great casual place to take out-of-towners. They won't be disappointed.

Yes, I know I'm a gringo and do love authentic fish tacos, but Snapper Jack's is still a great place to eat at. While yes, the style is exactly what it isn't, it makes for a great meal no doubt. This is my second time and a great place to use the per diem for sure.

I can't believe that I hadn't came here before I feel like I have been missing out my entire life. The burritos are my favorite! The pico de gallo is delicious. You won't be disappointed

Always great tacos and the salsa bar is extensive. Fish tacos battered or grilled. Shrimp tacos are excellent plus steak, chicken, etc. Casual and fun.

So we've been going to Snapper Jacks now for over 8 years and we've never experienced anything but the best. The decor is very cool, skater/surfer/old time feel, with great surfing movies playing in the background that the kids love. The food is wonderful and ranges from tacos, their specialty, and burritos and nachos to even the healthy options like... More
