Special double-post this week, as I hit not one, but two places on Saturday.
The first was Wahoo’s fish tacos, which is a great place despite the fact that it’s a chain.Â Okay, so Austin has the only Texas location of this California chain, but I’m still counting it as a chain.Â I went with SHawna, and while she grabbed a blackened fish taco, I got a combo: blackened fish taco, grilled beef taco, rice, and beans.
The beef was excellent, but the fish was a little bland.Â Strangely enough, Shawna’s tasted much better, so I split the difference.Â The food filled me up (and then some!).Â You’ll also remember from a previous post that Wahoo’s has the cleanest bathroom in Austin.Â
Oh, and their weekend happy hour is domestics and margaritas cost whatever the outside temperature is!
Check it out!

Ultra-full bonus: +1
Later, we went to La Ferria with some friends, where I ordered the Pastor plate.Â Mmmm, spicy grilled pork.Â Delicious!Â La Ferria also bosts incredible salsa and wondering mariachis.Â Not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
I will be giving them a deduction for not serving the pastor tacos a la carte, however.
Plate penalty: -1
