I just discovered that Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, imported from Orange County, Califorina has their first restaurant in Las Vegas. Wahoo’s is famous for its delicious So Cal, beach taco stand food. This location, open since October 2011, is at a kind of out-of-the-way location on Sunset near Rainbow Blvd. From the outside, it looks like a bar that might serve up some food from a small kitchen, typically found in Las Vegas. Once you get inside its main focus is the food, and they happen to have a bar inside as well. The main restaurant is spacious and has plenty of seating, styled in southern California beach/surfing & snowboard/skateboarding motif. Deep in the center of the restaurant is a full bar separated with glass partitions, but the restaurant is very family oriented. Wahoo’s is open 24/7.
I first tried out Wahoo’s a few years back after spending the day at Pacific Beach in San Diego. I brought the whole family in fresh from the beach, sandy feet and in flip-flops and I felt right at home. At the Wahoo’s in Las Vegas, I ordered the two taco combo plate, 1 grilled fish taco, and the other, carne asada, served with rice and beans. I stuck with the Cajun bean and brown rice (pictured above) for $6.50 this tasty deal is a quite the value.
Now for the best news, according to the owner, Wahoo’s is opening up its second location in Summerlin’s Boca Park right behind the existing Jason’s Deli and is expected to open near the end of this February (2012). This location will include an outside patio. Also, there are plans for a Hendertucky (Green Valley) store opening too.
