Had lunch here with 5 colleagues who were variously vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, lactose intolerant and carnivorous. The way the menu works made this no issue - you pick your protein and your main and they combine it together, so if you want tofu, fish, meat...More

Fast food ambiance in the South Lake area of Pasadena. I like the food: fresh tasting and yummy. Surfer and skateboard theme all over the walls.

We eat here at least two or three times a month for dinner. Parking not always easy though. I usually get the nachos with carnitas or fish tacos. Gotta get the Mr. Lees hot sauce! Hot but kinda sweet. Delicious on everything. Friendly staff.

First time lunch visit to Wahoo's in Pasadena! Citrus slaw tacos were very tasty and healthy! My friend had the taquitos (pork) and brown rice and black beans. She was equally impressed with the preparation, the presentation, and, of course, the taste! We had a...More

If you want good cheap food in Pasadena on S. Lake Avenue near Del Mar, this is the place. I discovered it several years ago on a brief stay nearby in Pasadena and went again recently. The citrus slaw topping on the fish (or any...More
