I visited with friends (about 8 of us). I had two different types of fish tacos, and they were excellent (especially the grilled). The sides were also good, and I appreciated the salsa bar selections. The counter staff was friendly. I hope to visit again.

First try at fish tacos.....delicious! A fast food restaurant - not fancy but the food I tried was very good and relatively inexpensive. And it is within walking distance of the Hyatt Regency Irvine.
