Fast food ambiance in the South Lake area of Pasadena. I like the food: fresh tasting and yummy. Surfer and skateboard theme all over the walls.

This place is between Lake Street and the parking lot behind. It is narrow, with the kitchen taking up about 2/3 of the middle, so the seats are along one wall, until one gets to either end. There are also tables and chairs outside on Lake St. The food was OK and there was plenty of it. The fish taco... More

Don't be fooled by the name -- they have other types of meat for the tacos, including several veggie options like ground mushrooms, which are quite delicious.

Well, fish tacos have to top my list of great foods, and Wahoo's fills the bill... A real quick-service joint, this place has a wide selection of beer & some of the best food around. You can wait for parking on the crowded Lake St or you can be smart and head around back to the big parking lot. The... More

We eat here at least two or three times a month for dinner. Parking not always easy though. I usually get the nachos with carnitas or fish tacos. Gotta get the Mr. Lees hot sauce! Hot but kinda sweet. Delicious on everything. Friendly staff.

The people are nice enough, but it's definitely not the highest quality of food. The mixed greens in the salad were so tart and old tasting, that I just threw it away. The salmon was fine. Nothing to write home about. My husband didn't even finish his one taco plate, saying that everything tasted to processed.

Good service, very kid friendly. The menu is broad, chicken, fish, beef, carnitas, shrimp and vegetarian tacos/salads/burritos/rice bowls and so forth. Although the food doesn't taste quite as it looks on the menu, this is a good choice for a quick, good value for the money lunch and it is a great place to go with kids.

First time lunch visit to Wahoo's in Pasadena! Citrus slaw tacos were very tasty and healthy! My friend had the taquitos (pork) and brown rice and black beans. She was equally impressed with the preparation, the presentation, and, of course, the taste! We had a 1pm lunch. The workers were just finishing bussing the last few inside tables and the... More

If you want good cheap food in Pasadena on S. Lake Avenue near Del Mar, this is the place. I discovered it several years ago on a brief stay nearby in Pasadena and went again recently. The citrus slaw topping on the fish (or any other) tacos is recommended. Burritos are tasty but a friend told me the Baja rolls... More

Tried a couple of the Citrus Spicy Fish tacos -- very tasty. Nice Iced Tea, with plenty of lemon wedges available. Overall, a great fish taco.
