Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill owner and founder, second-generation restaurateur Steve Paperno, opened the first Sharky’s in 1992 in Sherman Oaks with a vision of “changing the way the world eats.” Paperno was inspired to create a restaurant built on what most “quick casual” Mexican restaurants pass up: the naturally simple, nutritional goodness of Mexican food, with a focus on organic ingredients which are not only healthier for the environment and people’s bodies, but taste better too.
At Sharky’s you will find a wide variety of offerings made from top quality natural & organic ingredients including: Burritos, Tacos, Power Plates™, Salads, and Stone Fired Tortilla Pizzas. A sample of dishes includes a Grilled Vegetarian Burrito with organic tofu; a Fiesta burrito with natural chicken, organic rice & beans, handmade guacamole, cheese, sour cream and fresh salsa; world famous tempura battered Mahi Mahi tacos; Power Plates™ with mesquite grilled natural chicken, organic poblano brown rice and steamed veggies; NuMex Caesar salad topped with Wild Salmon and Stone Fired Chipotle BBQ Chicken pizza.
The popular “get it naked” menu offers low and non-fat options for customers who might prefer a Chicken Tostada Salad without the typical deep-fried tortilla bowl. Sharky’s Naked Chicken Tostada is the top selling “naked” item made on a stone-baked whole wheat tortilla with black beans, non-fat cheese, organic baby greens, steamed vegetables, guacamole, non-fat sour cream, non- fat cheese, mesquite-grilled chicken and organic poblano brown rice.
The restaurants also offer catering, take-out, and beer at many of the 21 locations throughout Southern California. For details, visit www.sharkys.com.
