I love this place. Very relaxed, laid-back, beachy feel. I highly recommend the salsa and guac. It's amazingly fresh and delicious! I take all my friends here.

There is only street parking, so during certain hours it could be difficult to find parking.

Pros: Food, Prices, Staff

Cons: Parking?

Ok, I was brought here by a co worker since we work near downtown and wanted something fast and yummy. This place was awsome!! Super relaxed, but very fast and professional. I love the decor and the fact that you can eat inside or on the patio on a nice day (who the hell doesn't like patio dining in Austin?) My coworker INSISTED I order the fish tacos with rice and black beans with a side of the most AMAZING green creamy sauce ever made!!! I was in love at first bite!! The rice is to DIE for especially with the green sauce mixed in!! There are friendly people all over this restaurant, and I have been MANY times since, and it's never lacked in anything! I bring my kids and husband here anytime we're close to it, and the whole family has a great dining experience. If you're looking for a place to 'unwind' for lunch..this is THE PLACE!! I hear they have great shows/ live music at night too. Anyone who doesn't enjoy this place should probably stick to the stuffy 'reservation' style eateries. I *HEART* Wahoos!!!!

I live in Los Angeles so I know Wahoos from being in Ca. I am moving to Austin next year (back to my old home) and am soooo glad Wahoos opened up a store there! THey have excellent Mexican food dishes- many healthy choices. I love their Blackened fish and Teriyaki beef and chicken bowls. I can't wait to eat there when I move to Austin. I really recommend this place to eat at! Thanks Wahoos for expanding to Texas, now I hope Pinkberrys and Trader Joes come to Austin next!

Wahoo's has Friday happy hour specials from Spring until Halloween where the cost of a pint of Bud Light, Miller Light, or Shiner Bock and 10 oz margaritas, is equivalent to the temperature outside. For example, it was 75 degrees outside, and our drinks were $.75 each. The food is fresh and delicious. I highly recommend the tacos and the bowls. It's a great place to relax, and unwind after the work day is done.

This place is a regular stop for lunch. Everyone I've taken here wants to try the fish tacos first, and I have to tell them to get a bowl on their first trip - they'll be hooked! If they start with fish tacos, which are only so-so, they won't want to come back with me.

So public service announcement : the fish tacos are the wrong thing to order here. Banzai bowl! Banzai bowl!

Pros: The banzai bowl

Cons: The tacos

I love this place because the "cajun beans" are really just spiced up "navy beans" and are not very cajun at all, which is fine with me. The rice is what has me hooked, its better than Chipotle's rice. The fish taco's are top notch, I like them charbroiled. They are served with plenty of lettuce/cabbage and tomatoes. Plenty of fish, and double wrapped corn tortillas. You cant lose for six bucks. Also the beer of the month is only $2, which is great especially when its Modelo month. haha

Pros: Great Food, Great Service, Great Price

Cons: none really. maybe if you dont like surf-shop looking restaraunts

First of all, a waiter met us at the door, and immediately got two CLEAN highchairs for us to use. We sat outside in the open-air room where it was breezy but sunny. There were many other families there but also some other groups without kids. It's a very casual place.
I thought the food was very healthy, plentiful, but not too heavy, especially in the summer. The Shrimp bowl was delicious, especially the green sauce that came with it. The kids loved their quesadilla plate, and the fish tacos were fresh and tasty. I'd definitely recommend it for families and non-families.

The service is really good here, you walk up, order and you get your food promptly. They even have someone walking around that will you bring you anything you need and fill up your drink. Although, the food wasn't so good and there isn't much of an option. The cajun beans were not cajun like at all and the burrito was dry. I won't be heading back to this place....ever.

Pros: prompt service, downtown

Cons: Bland food, pricey

Ambience: The place is decorated to please the 12 year old skateboarder in all of us. The TVs with wakeboarding videos is a cool touch, but not cool enough to hang out there. It might be OK to get in, eat, and get out. You wouldn't want to hang out there though.

Food: Super no big deal. The fish in the fish tacos is pretty good, but under flavored. The "Cajun" beans pretty much suck. The rice that comes with the meal "ahi rice" is merely white rice flavored with some lemon or something. We're in Texas folks! We like Mexican style rice!

Service: You order at a counter and they give you a number. A couple of tables needed to be bussed.

Value: The meal was pretty cheap. So, I'd say the value is good.

Bottom Line: There are much better places to eat around there. Won't last.
