Dining News: Now Open - Wahoo's Fish Tacos


Wahoo's Fish Tacos, a Southern California-based restaurant featuring Mexican food mixed with Brazilian and Asian flavors, opens on Monday, reports Sactown Magazine.

More than five years after opening, the L Street Lofts building has hooked its first restaurant—a 3,000 square-foot Wahoo’s Fish Taco, a Santa Ana-based chain that started in 1988 and features an “eclectic Mexican/Brazilian/Asian menu and a Hawaiian north-shore vibe,” according to its website. The restaurant will open this Monday, Aug. 4 at 11 a.m...

This will be Wahoo's first location in the Sacramento region. It has about three dozen restaurants in Southern California, three in Northern California (Sunnyvale, San Jose and Fresno) and has expanded to Colorado, Las Vegas, Austin, Texas, and recently opened its first franchises in New York City and Tokyo. The restaurant serves up tacos, burritos and enchiladas that come with either charbroiled fish, shrimp, steak, chicken, carnitas or tofu. They also serve salads and nachos and have both vegetarian and vegan options. Wahoo’s will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week, and may add a weekend brunch service down the road. The space will have outdoor seating on L Street, and will also feature a full bar, including margaritas.

Restaurant employees had told me earlier that the restaurant was aiming for a July 21 opening date, pending permits, training, etc. It appears, that with many new establishments, it took a little longer than they hoped.

There was also twitter chatter that the restaurant would actually open this past weekend. I stopped by early Sunday evening, and a sign on the door said that only the bar was open. But when I tried the door, it was locked. Peeking through their windows, the restaurant looked ready to open.

Wahoo's Fish Tacos is located at 1820 L Street, and can be found online at Wahoos.com.
