First Review by gr8vegan

Very Nice - Edit

Nice to finally find a fast food restaurant that serves not so fat food. I had the banzai burrito with brown rice. Very good and filling. Glad that I got the option to add brown rice instead of the normal white rice. Also you can choose for tofu, fish, beef, pork, chicken and shrimp, so also the non vegs can pick what they like. It's a shame there is no restaurant in San Francisco, if it was I would visit wahoo's again!

Pros: Prices, Many Options, Healthier Snackbar

Decent - Edit

While it may seem like another taco and burrito restaurant, this Wahoo location manages to give off an alternative feel to it, probably due to its alternate/surfer/relaxed "dude" decor of with lots of random stickers (on chairs, tables, walls). I walk by this location all the time and stopped in a few times. Here's my Wahoo's review.

The menu is surprising vegetarian friendly, though I am aware that it's all the same grill for the meat & the veg. But when I eat at NON-veg places, I have to overlook that... The food is fine, good enough, and the feel is more laid back and earthy than the taco/burrito chain restaurants like Baja Fresh or La Salsa.

Vegheads can get more than just rice and beans for their filling. Grilled veggies and the marinated tofu are the other veg options.

Pros: friendly servers, cheap & quick, convenient downtown location

Cons: meat

not a bad place for a change of scenery - Edit

The black beans, brown rice and tofu are vegan, no other rice is vegan, they contain butter. You can put these items with salsa, lettuce, tomato in a bowl, wrap, corn tortilla or lettuce leaf.

Pros: large portions

Cons: cross contamination possible, hidden butter in items
