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

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...
