PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
Hip chain of surf-themed fusion taco stands that draws on Mexican, Brazilian, and Asian influences to produce a particularly addictive line of fish tacos and Ahi rice. The beachy décor skips on the bland fast food look for a more local, West Coast feel, and the service is refreshingly friendly (if you come back once or twice, they’ll probably even remember your name and your order). A fresh and tasty local alternative to the burger joint.
It’s a diverse bunch–everyone from office types out for a quick bite to out-of-work actors and teenagers looking for cheap eats.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s really relaxed–anything more than jeans and a t-shirt is completely unnecessary.

WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
LA could use a few more Wahoo’s outlets.
