Wahoo's! Food is good, fast, and cheap. Not spectacular but a nice quick eat especially if you are coming from the beach. Place is decorated really nicely and has a nice feel with plenty of seating.

In this part of the world Fish Tacos are almost a religion, nobody can agree on which are best. Wahoos is a chain so you'd not necessarily expect the best, and you'd be right. There's nothing wrong with them but they're pretty average. The staff were extremely friendly.

The fish and carnitas tacos were three stars. The carne asada tacos were four stars. Super nice people running the place but slow service.

Small diner, friendly staff, yummy and spicy Mr Lee's and tomato sauces. Slaw was tasty. Blackened fish tacos was good. The Cajun beans was good too.

We love coming here after the beach. Kid friendly and doesn't feel too trendy here. Looking forward to next Tuesday!

My favorite is the Outer Reef Burrito. Delicious. You have a choice of protein, rich and beans. It is simply the best !! They also have a happy hour from 3-6 pm with great prices in wine, drinks and beer. I love to get the fish on my burrito with black beans and brown rice. It's always good ! Go... More
