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

When I think of fish burritos, I long for Snapper Jacks. I love the fresh salsas ( my favorite is the cilantro & melon one!) and the Shack sauce. Good value for the money, huge portions. Can be a bit pricey but not bad for SoCal. Oooh, I'm hungry now, just thinking about it! Enjoyable, surf oriented Southern California vibe.... More

If you want a few tacos, a beer and a basic place to hang this is it. Nice Salsa bar . Staff was very cool. Food was fresh and very tasty. Great balance of spices. Great food for the money.

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
