It's a fish taco, nothing to get overly excited about but the food is good and fresh. This particular location is great. Outdoor fire-pit, nice setting and in the heart of old town.

My host thought this would be a good experience. We arrived in Orange on the night of their town Halloween party -- so parking was more difficult than usual! But, even with all the families heading to Wahoo's for an after-party dinner, the line moved along relatively quickly. Seating outside was comfortable and quiet enough to hear conversations. I had...

The service is fast from ordering your food to delivery and won't break your budget. Three of us enjoyed dinner in the patio on a great evening and left full. These are the best fish tacos I've found in California.

We love eating at Wahoos! It is pricy (it seems like yesterday the tacos were only $1.99 each) but they are quality ingredients! I used to always get the blackened fish or shrimp tacos, but lately I love their banzai bowls. I t lasts through two meals! Oh, and whoever started the churro chips at Wahoos should be given a...

Love Wahoo's Fish tacos. Their tortilla soup is delicious. Also love to get the kids kalua pork bowl with rice and beans. It is just the right amount of food with the soup. I love the fish tacos too. You can't go wrong with the menu items. This place took forever to open because of the City of Orange rules... More

Housed in the first hotel in the City of Orange, this Wahoo's location is conveniently located on Chapman, west of the Plaza. The menu is the same as at the other Wahoo's locations. Great eats!

What can I say? Wahoo's is amazing... Love their entire "dig", of the laid back "surfer/skater" atmosphere, pleasant and helpful staff, but most of all amazing, AMAZING food. Everyone that I have taken to Wahoo's (to share this "jewel") has been slammed at the amazing quality of the food. I only wish that we could see more Wahoo locations around... More

Started eating here when they opened in the 80s. I LOVE their fish tacos. They have a wide range of selection besides fish too. Even my brother, easily the pickiest eater I know, can even have a meal there that he can enjoy. Also, I must say that the employees at this location are fantastic. Always friendly and the service...
