White rice tasted good. Big portions. Enchilada only so so. Green sauce was very green. Probably too much cilanteo. Salsa and guacamole were excellent. Shrimp tasted good. Beef bleh.

This has long been a family favorite for a meal after a hike through the canyon. Now it's also one of my favorite places to eat after a workout.

While staying at the Marriott for the weekend, my wife and I stopped at Wahoo's Fish Taco for a quick bite to go. The service was fast from cashiering to picking up the food, which was actually better than I expected. Give 3 out of 5 because it was a quick stop, not much to rate.

I really love their fish tacos and the service is always quick (even if there are a few people ahead of you in line).

Had tacos that were ok. Loved that they were soft corn tortillas and not flour. Rice and black beans very good. Used to re fried rice with Mexican. White rice was nice chane of pace. Apparently good place to take young kids they were all over.

Based on the positive reviews in this forum and the close proximity by hotel I thought I would try one is for dinner. Blackened fish tacos with a side of black beans and rice were very good. Service was good and I was able to sit at an outside patio - very pleasant.

Wahoo's has been doing fresh grilled fish tacos and burritos for 20 years, and their place in Lake Forest stays consistent to their commitment to quality and authenticity. Try the fish blackened and get the Cajun white beans to spice things up even more.

Huge burrito was very good. Took a few minutes to prepare, but it was outstanding. Price is a little high, but it's worth it. Much better than the tacos I've had at Wahoo's before.
