This was my first time eating at this place and i was impressed with the speed of service. Top it off with a HOT YUMMY WET CHICKEN BURRITO at a decent cost. I will be coming back for sure

Very nice place to eat in, the food is also good so you won't be disapointed in coming here. We loved the dfferent varriations of mexican food. The barbacoa is so yummy and we loved it. You also have burritos and chichimangas but you certainly would like to try the goat birria which is amazing and very tasty. Never had... More

I lived in Hayward for about four years, and never visited this place. It always looked a little pricey to me. Weeks ago my brother recommended it to me for the barbacoa and the consome, so now that my girlfriend and me were around Hayward, and she wanted to have a Mexican dinner, I remembered my brother's recommendation and drove...

If you dare to adventure away from the normal touristy burritos and chimichangas, which they also have, and try the goat birria, the barbacoa or the pozole, all specialties of the mexican Altiplano, you will not be disappointed. Flavors are delicate and intricate and I can also vouch for their authenticity. The downside? Tortillas are not the best, but they... More

Whenever I am in the downtown area for the Saturday Farmer's Market, I always pass this place by and wondered what it was about. It had an extensive menu, had a hard time to decide between fish tacos and wet style burrito. I got the latter with chicken and no beans. Just having half of it was very filling and... More

Our son eats here and told us about it. I have been several times and they have very good fish taco's. I liked their salsa as well. Cool owners too.

I eat at Shark shack at least twice a month. The food is made with fresh ingredients and the service is always very efficient My favorte sandwich is the mexican torta made with carne asada, white onions, tomatoes, jalapenos and avocados. It is a pleasure to eat authentic mexican food made by Mariano Orozco and his team.

Very tasty food served hot on hot plates! The wet burrito should fill you up, that is if you can eat it all! Very friendly place!

The Shark Shack is a very cute place, and when it first opened I really did like the food. My very last visit there was a cautionary tale. The waiter made it very clear he did not like the owners. If an employee is secretly waging battle with his boss or bosses it detracks from the atmosphere. JThough the food... More
