We know. We picked California Fish Grill last year. But in these times of foreclosures, lost jobs and general economic malaise, how could we, in good conscience, pick anything else? Seafood ain't cheap, after all. But somehow, California Fish Grill still manages to charge no more than $10 for meals that usually go for double everywhere else. Salmon, ahi, mahi mahi, swordfish and other Finding Nemo friends are fried or grilled, then served up with nutty rice or crisp fries and coleslaw. Tipping isn't compulsory, but you'll feel like a complete criminal if you don't drop at least some loose change in the jar.

Also work near the Cypress location....BEST taco Tuesday, and just all around best fish place. Great clam chowder, cajun halibut is to die for, and a great alternative to fast food when served over rice. Try the grilled zucchini on the side, it's awesome! I've tried to re-create it, but never as good as this place.

I have one of these next to my work in Cypress and they have the best Taco Tuesday EVER. $1.25 for grilled or breaded fish tacos that are mouthwatering at the very least. The tartar sauce here is also a favorite of mine.
