It was 1988 when we, the Lee brothers, came together to open the first Wahoo’s Tacos in Costa Mesa, California, where the surf and skate industry had gathered.
We wanted to create a menu that was a reflection of our unique heritage. From China to Brazil, to Baja with hints of Greece, our bold, fresh flavors come from our memories of growing up in Brazil, surfing in Baja and working in our family’s Chinese restaurant.
Our food is true to this experience, worldly and uncommonly delicious. We’ll always offer you the best of where we’ve been to fuel your adventures.
At Wahoo’s, we encourage you to nourish yourself with food and experiences that make you feel more alive. So, ride those waves, care for your community, love what you eat every day, and be authentically you. Our family is here to feed yours.
Mingo, Wing and Ed
