“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I love Wahoos fish tacos. They were my first years ago. They are the best. I wish someone would open them on the east coast. Hey someone want to open one in CT?

“Tacos & Beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Casual sit down resturant maybe 25 tables right on State St. You order tacos and stuff at the counter grab a table and eat. Very casual, very reasonably priced often with beer specials.

“Great Food, atmosphere, value, and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Went to Wahoo Fish Taco for dinner with our family, son had burrito, wife had Kailula pork with lettuce and tomatoes, and I had the salad with a grilled fish. This is a place where you order food at counter and get a number where they bring it to you. We all enjoyed our food and price was great (We used SB Axxess to get a discount, total came to $20 for 3). Ambience appeared it would be hip with teenagers, with stickers for all sorts of Cali lifestyle things like the beach, surfing etc on tables, walls, and ceiling. Very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Enjoyable place for dinner with the family.

“Great Food at a Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have eaten at Wahoo's restaurants up and down the coast plenty of times, several times here in Santa Barbara. The menu is fresh and wonderful. I recommend their grilled shrimp tacos, you can get them as a meal with two tacos and rice and beans. You have several options to choose from as sides, all of them great. There are lots of places to eat in downtown Santa Barbara, but this is definitely one of our favorites. Great relaxed Surfer/Beach vibe and huge front windows to watch the foot traffic up and down State Street. Try their tropical iced tea for a nice refreshing change! You will love this place!

“exactly what you would expect from Wahoo's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

BUT A MUCH BETTER LOCATION :)

I am a lover of Wahoo's. I love the SB Wahoo's because it is the perfect spot for people watching. Especially on Farmers Market nights!

I love the Wahoo Bowl the most!

Same great and happy service you would expect at any Wahoos!
