I get it. Healthy Mexican food sounds great. But it is hard to sell healthy when the place is as sloppy as this was on our visit. When we arrived, over half the tables were covered with dirty dishes, which stayed there for over 20...More

A large group of us were well-received by Sharky's, with abundant but pretty ordinary Mexican food in a very noisy atmosphere. One orders at the counter, and food is brought to the table. The seafood dishes were good.More

Sharky's is my favorite restaurant and I'm bummed we don't have any in San Diego! This is our closest one. You can taste the difference in the real ingredients they use and everything on the menu is absolutely fantastic!

One of our favorite quick healthy food places to eat. Organic beans, rice and other items. Meats served do not have antibiotics or hormones. But equally important food taste great! Highly recommend!
