“New twist on the Surf Taco Place”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Sort of a rip off of the Rubio's theme--but different enough menu to justify a visit. Shrimp dishes are great.

“When we visit San Diego we always stop here”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

When we visit San Diego from Ohio we always stop at Wahoo's, usually at the Point Loma location. I love the grilled cajan fish platter. Where else can you get this type of fish taco's? It comes with beans and brown rice. There is a surfer ambiance that complements the food; very coastal California.

“Good for a cheap and fast meal”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

It's not expensive and the quality is good for what you get. Their salsa is pretty flavourful. The only thing I didn't like was my rice and beans arrived lukewarm/cold but that was easily remedied by the server putting it in the microwave for a minute.

“Great tacos”
Reviewed October 27, 2009

Great little shop, loved the casual vibe. I ordered the 2 carne asada tacos platter (black beans and rice) and my husband ordered the 2 charbroiled fish taco platter. We each got a beer. He got a Corona and I tried a local beer called Woody. The check out girl even offered to let me try it after I asked her how did it taste! Great customer service. I tasted it and ordered one. Great sipping beer on a hot day. We sat outside to enjoy the breeze and sunshine. Loved seeing how dog owners just walked right in with their dogs. SD is a dog friendly city. The food came out fast and the portions were huge! I couldn't even finish it. The tacos were fresh tasting and perfect. Oh, and did I mention we paid under $20 for everything? Loved it.
