Had some great fish tacos here. The beans and rice were a bit much portion-wise but good. Wish I had time to sample the variants w/ differing sauces and toppings. Good basic fish tacos plus the usual burrito/enchilada fare. Service was excellent, very friendly.

I love Wahoos fish tacos. They were my first years ago. They are the best. I wish someone would open them on the east coast. Hey someone want to open one in CT?

Casual sit down resturant maybe 25 tables right on State St. You order tacos and stuff at the counter grab a table and eat. Very casual, very reasonably priced often with beer specials.

Even though it is a California fast food chain, I think that Wahoo’s Fish Tacos are the best of any that I have tried! They’re prepared fresh with grilled fish, they’re gluten free, and they taste fantastic. And of course you can’t beat the price...More

Great fish tacos in this casual restaurant. We liked the relaxed surfer vibe with the stickers on the walls, music and friendly staff. The food was great too and reasonably priced. Would definitely visit again.
