Nice selection of entrees with average to higher prices compared to similar places. After my so, so first visit, I decided to give Wahoo another try. Presentation: *Kids bowl served with rice on one side - black beans on the other - fish on top. Very bland and unappealing. *Tortilla soup served with no tortilla strips or tortillas. *Fish taco...

Wahoo's is a standard taco shop with the typical options burrito's, tacos, enchiladas etc., but they kick it up a notch.

This is my best friends favorite place to eat so we come here quite often. The menu allows you to customize your own food by choosing your protein, starch and added on toppings.

I like this place. Located in a shopping center it's nothing fancy, but they do a terrific torta. Note: they changed the name on their menu to "Wahoo Sandwich", but it's a torta none the less. Staff is friendly, service is good and the prices are reasonable. I had the carne asada torta and my bill came to under $8.

I ordered the spicy Mahi with a veggie bowl. It came to about $10 without a drink. The fish was tasty, but skimpy portion size. Most of the bowl had beans with a little lettuce. Pretty disappointing, but not terrible.

We went to Wahoo yesterday for Lunch and ordered a grilled fish outer reef burrito with guacamole and sour cream inside, and a shrimp salad with balsamic dressing. The staff is very friendly and the fish delicious.

Fish taco's are popular in SD. This is a fun place, but very average in terms of the food. Frankly it all tasted the same! We love Mexican food and we love fish taco's. This is convenient but we dont expect any more than 'fill'. There are better choices.

I thought this would be a fast-food type of experience, where it fills you up, and then you forget about it immediately. Not so! We had two good, tasty lunches here, and the service was fast. Lots of fresh ingredients. The menu is extensive and surely offers up something for everybody.

Whenever the family can't decide where to go--Wahoos pleases everyone!! We love the onion rings, enchiladas and the fish or teriyaki chicken bowls.

Good Mex food, easy ordering at the counter, and low prices. We were there with a 4yr old and 20 mos old, and it was the perfect site for a fun, messy family meal!
