“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I have been frequenting a number of their restaurants over the years, including the first one in Costa Mesa, CA.
their food has always been consistent, and presents a good value. As a nutritionally concerned patron, I look for fresh food, prepared in as healthy of a method as this modified fast food allows for them to do. And they do a great job. Their menu, while compact, is sensible and offers a variety of their fusion type foods. Their wahoos salad with cilantro dressing is amazingly filling, but low on harmful substances. The one thing I would not order again is the Wahoo's sandwich. Im not sire what I was thinking, but that obviously isn't their thing. Stick with their very fine tacos, salads, and burritos, and you will not be sorry. Most of their combo plates are based on tacos or burritos. Secret hint....tortilla soup. Yum

“My favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Wahoo's has always been my favorite restaurant. This is Baja style restaurant, generally a very light freshness to all of their meals. I usually go for the grilled fish enchiladas with red sauce, black beans on the side and regular rice. I also really like the carnitas and the shrimp, alternating these as fillings for my enchiladas. My daughter loves the chicken tacos.

By the way, the price can't be beat... And the Orange location is in a rebuilt old hotel just off the circle. Great food, great price and super location.... The only down side is there is only street parking at this location.

“Wahoo's has a magical mix of good food, great prices, and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I have been to several Wahoo's locations over the years - and they have a fanatical dedication to quality economical food, served quickly and with a great ambiance. At this location, they have as much outside seating as inside, and it is located 2 blocks off the Orange Circle. The outside seating is designed for evenings, and has a long fireplace to ward off the chills. There are table with umbrellas, and some without. The menu is the same as their other locations, and the only challenge with this location - a renovated turn of the century home - is the proximity of parking. I walked 2 blocks from free city parking - and there are a few spots directly behind the restaurant - but they share that parking with the adjacent church. Bravo, and welcome to Orange!
