Everytime I go there, I always get the same thing. Tempura battered fish tacos! YUM. My friends order the burritos and the salads but I never get tired of the fish tacos. The staff is friendly, call ahead and phone in your order you won't be disappointed. Oh and their chips are the best! Light and crisp with a hint of lime. So good you don't even need salsa, but the salsas are really good too. . . .

Now, I like Baja.. but Sharky's blows Baja away. They offer so much more. I'm a vegetarian, who tries to watch what I eat. So Sharky's is the place for me. They offer tofu (baja doesn't) and low fat wheat tortilla (baja doesn't). Try the tofu taco's. (And I get the delicious nachos when I feel like ""being bad"".) It all tastes so great. And the salsa's are incredible. (I always get the double fire roasted). I go here so much, they all know me there.. its a li'l embarassing. -- Oh, and they serve beer here!

Sharky's menu is much like Baja Fresh's menu, but Sharky's is SO much better. Everything tastes just a bit fresher, AND the veggies in the burritos are cooked to perfection, with still just a little bit of a crisp bite to it. So good. The burritos are large, and the portions are VERY generous. The Cashiers are super friendly. Parking to the side of the building makes it such an easy place to go for ""fast food"". Prices will run ya about 7-8 for lunch. But not bad considering the food is really good, you get a drink, and chips and salsa. Oh, their salsas are great, every degree of heat available from super mild, to super hot. Overall, really good food.

If you're in the mood for a ""big burrito"" then this is your place. Try the grilled shrimp burrito - oven baked. The food here is always fresh and although you sometimes have to wait a little longer than you'd like, the payoff is always nice.
If you like Baja Fresh, you'll like Sharky's.
If there is such a thing as healthy fast-food this is a good choice. The Sharkey's Burrito is an excellent choice with the ""Hot Sauce"" to top it off.
This may look like a fast-food stop, however, be prepared to wait as it is very busy. I recommend calling your order in ahead of time.
Good size protions for a reasonable price.
They don't compare to Poquito Mas or La Salsa, but they're still good at what they do and much better for you than most Mexican restaurants in LA. The one thing they've got down to a science are the chicken enchiladas (none of the other fresh Mex chains have figured this one out). The green sauce is delicious. It could do with a little less cheese, but maybe that's not a drawback for everybody.
The servers could do with a little less attitude as well. I don't like it when people roll their eyes because I ask what seems to them like a tedious question. If you're new, just stand back for a second and try to figure things out on your own. It'll save you the hassle of their sighs.

Love the chicken burritos, they're loaded with marinated chicken, black beans, rice and cheese. The only bummer is the chips; they're seasoned with an odd-tasting lime essence. But that doesn't seem to bother the cops who like to hang out here for lunch.
