Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill
2463 Park Ave
Ok, readers of The New Diner maybe asking, what the hell is he doing reviewing a chain? I know it's a chain but I've never been to Sharky's and wanted to give it a try.
I ordered the tempura battered Mahi Mahi $3.49 and the charbroiled fish taco, $3.49.
The tempura battered Mahi Mahi has, cabbage, cheese, pico de gallo and salsa on a flour tortilla. This was a fairly big piece of mahi mahi, with a nice cruncy and flakely moist inside. They could have put more pico de gallo but adding salsa from their salsa bar made this less dry.
The charbroiled fish taco was made with mahi mahi. I didn't care for this too much. There wasn't that much mahi mahi and again it was dry. The little mahi mahi was nicely charbroiled and tasty. But there just wasn't enough. Not worth the $3.49 price tag.
Service is good and the food comes fresh and hot.
This location of Sharky's, is at the new, The District shopping center. Many mapquest and GSP do not have The District listed. They will send you to someplace in Irvine.
I prefer other places like Rubios and Baja Fresh to Sharky's. I think Sharky's is fairly pricey and not worth the high prices.
