We were looking for one final fish/shrimp taco spot on our way out of town and we enjoyed Snapper Jack's. Both the fish and shrimp tacos were delicious and the special sauce really added great flavor. They have a lot of salsas to choose from at the salsa bar. Their menu is really extensive - worth a quick stop and... More

I try not to write bad reviews. I will often try a place multiple times if something is off the first time. This story is the opposite. Snapper Jacks started out great. My first trip a few yeas ago yielded fresh hot grilled fish, cabbage and a crispy shell. The last two visits the food was almost inedible. On my... More

Their crunchy steak tacos are the best! If you're trying to eat a bit healthier, their quinoa bowl is amazing. & everything only gets better with their shack sauce.

First time having fish tacos. The staff was friendly and the food was fresh. They played some pretty good oldies and the decor was nice

Sometimes I won't review after a bad first visit but my burrito was disgusting. I ordered a steak flajita burrito. The taste was so bad I threw it away. Like too much cumin or curry with the taste of burnt milk mixed with processed American cheese. The burrito was mushy and impossible to hold. People who work here should be... More

We had 2 burritos, one very plain, one with just about everything. Both were excellent. Guac was ok, not great. Chips were ok, not salted enough for my taste, but still crispy and not greasy. Salsa bar had great selection. Thought it was a little pricy ($22). But good food.

I LOVED this place. And I'm glad I shared the taco platter with a friend because these fish tacos are bigger than at other places, packed full of big fish chunks and yummy veggies. It might be "fast food" but it's made from scratch, fresh and a very good value.

Great customer service, but the food was just terrible. The crab was off and the fish was burnt. Came all the way from Indiana to get a California fish taco and We were highly disappointed with it having such great reviews.
