This place is similar to torchy's or fuzzy's in that you walk up to the front and order your meal. They great great prices and you could make it a combo for an extra $2. The food was delicious!

Just recently went to wahoo's. It's everything you think of Austin to be. Food and service was great. Everyone was nice and welcoming. The price was definitely right. Me and my family loved it.

Fast service but kinda bland food. We order 5 different types of tacos and the whaoo roll. Very bland. Ordered 2 beers on tap and they were cool not cold.

Me and my teen-age daughter stopped here on a road trip to San Antonio for lunch. It was one of my favorite meals on our Texas trip! The fish tacos were great, as well as the guacamole, sliced avocado and chips - all fresh. The restaurant was kind of a very low-key surf/fun atmosphere (shorts and flip-flops work). The employees...

I love going to wahoos to do work or to just grab a quick lunch. The staff is awesome and the food quality is great. They also generally play really good music and have a full bar.

Went there for a late lunch. Ordered a salad with grilled fish. I was not very impressed when the food arrived because the fish looked like it was taken out of the refrigerator and added to the salad. But, it tasted good: dense, but flaky marine fish. The chips were not greasy and the salsa was excellent quality.

We decided to try this place out after a few hours on the paddle boards at Town Lake. I had heard good things about Wahoo's but unfortunately it did not live up to the hype. If you like your food with the sweaty mustiness of a frat house then this place is for you. The food was very average and... More
