Some of the most yummy tacos I've ever had. A true gem in the ABQ food scene and reasonable prices too.

Love the RT 66 food trucks in Albuquerque. Had to try this one as it reminded me of something you might see on the East Coast where I am from. Very cute "Tiki and Beach" theme. They cook everything fresh so don't expect to run in and out. Fish tacos were really great and we loved the salsa bar. Very... More

The restaurant looks a bit like a shack on the side of the road, but the food is definitely worth stopping by. You have to order from a window on the side of the building, but then they have an area with picnic tables to sit outside. I ordered 3 tacos: fish, shrimp and beef. All were the best I... More

A good friend recommended the Taco Tuesday Special -- 3 Fish Tacos for $5. I tried them, and they were WONDERFUL! Delicious, and a great value! As other reviews have pointed out -- Sharky's only offers window service, with an patio dining area. It was quite nice on the September afternoon when I visited for lunch. Service was a bit... More

The shrimp tacos are very good here. There are fried, but not very greasy. Fish and shrimp tacos are their specialty. They have other meats as well, the adobada tacos are really good. There is a nice patio with misters to help keep you cool. The Chile caribe is amazing as a side. They also have a nice salsa bar... More

Food was excellent!! We had fish & shrimp baja tacos. They only have outside dining so it can get a little warm during the August heat but the cure for this is getting it to go. Definitely would go back.

The food is awesome and is so authentic. The chef was very nice and sociable and made us want to come back. They had a seafood soup that I was craving my entire pregnancy so as soon as I gave birth I went back and ordered it ASAP.

Delicious fish and shrimp tacos eaten outdoors on a warm New Mexican day. What could be better? Perhaps my friend's pulpo tostada but not much else. This is a very informal establishment with no indoor seating but the food is well worth the drive.

Thank goodness for reviews from other TripAdvisor reviewers. Loved our visit to Sharky's. The Baja Shrimp and Fish tacos were as good as they get, shrimp burritos were excellent too. We enjoyed an order of Chili Carribe, pickled peppers stuffed with shrimp and cheese, then wrapped with bacon. What's not to like?? They were a little rich so it was... More
