This is a healthier choice for fast food tacos. Taco shells are very small, 2 steamed tortillas. The fish ones are ok, the grilled chicken ones are good. The spicey chicken tacos are medium spicey. Comes with white or brown rice, black or spicey white beans. You can get half and half. There are a couple of tables outside. Parking... More

Stopped by for an early dinner, and had difficulty communicating my order. I had two fish tacos with citrus slaw on the side. I didn't know that was the slaw that comes on the fish tacos. The fish was thick and very chewy, almost meaty in a way. The tortillas were too small for the large square of fish. My... More

We eat here a couple times a month. The service is always excellent and food the same. I have never even heard another customer complain! I like the son of classic burrito but they stopped making it. So onto another great dish.

Wahoo's Torrance has been a staple of mine for years. Excellent food and the staff are very good. My favorite is the chicken burrito, black beans, and white rice. The onion rings are awesome.

Pleasantly surprised by this place! The location, in an out-dated strip mall, turned me off--but the food is actually very good, with a lot of healthy options. Service was great. Fish tacos were excellent. Will definitely return!

Do not normally review chains but had a poor experience at another Wahoo and wanted to note that this is a decent place to stop for a bite. Lunch or dinner, eat in or take out. You likely won't rave about it, but for a reasonably priced fish or shrimp taco, you won't complain either. It is not to die... More

I've eaten here a few times. The prices are great for what you get as the portions are large for "fast food". the workers are friendly and willing to make suggestions to new visitors. It is Beach shack-themed. I've come here alone and with a group from work.

Wahoo's has rightfully earned its place as a Southern California "casual" restaurant legend. The food items are so unique and the surroundings so original that the place deserves to be in a category by itself. When you eat or order take-out here, be prepared to "have it your own way," as all menu items offer a number of ingredient and... More

Great food at a very reasonable price. Beer specials and lots of seating. A lot of locals in this place, always a good sign.
