“Fresh, healthy food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We've been to Sharky's before (for to-go orders) and have always enjoyed their fresh food and salsa bar. We recently met friends here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the upbeat yet laid-back atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the service was great. You place your order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. The salsa bar has many tasty selections of varying degrees of heat, including pico de gallo and avocado sauce. I eat a plant-based diet, so eating out at restaurants can definitely present challenges due to limited, healthy selections -- not the case here though. I had the Sharky's Quinoa salad ($8.99) and it was excellent! The salad has white and red quinoa, baby spinach, jicama, cucumber, sweet peppers, etc. dressed lightly with an avocado vinaigrette -- YUM! It's currently being offered for a limited time only, so I really hope it becomes a regular menu item -- though a little less expensive would be even better. Sharky's offers organic and GMO-free food and while this is good to know, the bottom line is how good the food tastes and how good your body feels after eating here -- they are doing excellent on both counts! We will definitely be dining here again!

“Great restaurant with many organic and non-GMO items...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I love Sharky's most of all because of the incredible flavor! from the fresh salsa and guacamole, to all the fresh fish and organic produce items. Also they use non-GMO corn for their tortillas. Unfortunately they use a mix of non-GMO and GM canola oil for frying, but I talked to a representative and it sounds like they are progressively working on going more no-GMO. All the employees here are always pleasant and i have never had a bad experience in my years coming here. Coming highly recommended for reasonably priced, fresh and healthy food that tastes amazing!

“Great quality & taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Portions weren't super huge, but the quality and flavor made up for it. Their salsa bar there was good, but needed some free chips or something (not too many came with the meal).

“Quick and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Sharkey's has been a favorite for a quick lunch stop for years. Lately we have ordered take out for a "don't want to cook" dinner. My favorite remains the smoked BBQ chicken pizza; tasy topping on a fire baked tortilla style crust. Yum!

“Organic, Fast Tex-Mex with Vegetarian/Meatless Options!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I love Sharkys. Of course they have burritos and tacos made with organic, fresh ingredients but they also have the best salsa bar I've seen at a fast-food place, a wood-fire pizza oven, and the option to put tofu or fish on anything instead of meat - their fish and tofu are so tasty.

Sharky's really shines when I need to pick up a bunch of party-food. Yes, they have a "catering menu" but, when I don't have quite enough people for the official catered "Fajita Bar", I just tell them the number of people I need to feed and they'll put together generous platters of chicken, beef, veggies, fish, or tofu accompanied by bowls of rice, beans, salsa, etc, and topped-off with excellent guac, tortillas, and containers of their two no-sugar-added but very flavorful teas - jasmine and tropical fruit flavored.
I hosted an office party last year for 8-or-so for around $100 and got "Wow"s for Weeks!

FYI - The ambiance is Fast-food with sports on TV and the price is on the high side for fast food but since I find the food sit-down-restaurant quality and I don't know where else I'd get tofu burrito fixins, I literally pass-up practically every other Tex-Mex place in town on the way to Sharky's.
