Wahoo's serves fantastic grilled fish tacos and an eclectic mix of seafood plates, bowls and pork dishes that combine Hawaiian, Mexican and Californian that just works. I usually order their Cajun-spiced beans and white rice with the spicy fish tacos. Enjoy the surfer/snowboarder ambiance as an extra.

If you haven't been to Wahoo's in a while, it might be time to give it another chance. I usually order the torta here, and it's been pretty good. It has been renamed the Shredder Sandwich, and now comes on a crusty ciabatta rolls. The meat seems a little more tender, and it is served with sliced avocado and citrus... More

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...

The serve a small selection of beer and three basic wine choices, thats why I gave it a 3 out of 5. I enjoy a good drink... More

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.
