Don't really like doing reviews but this restaurant is just something else. Fried shrimp and fish was burnt, I let waiter know he told me " hope next time you have better experience". The sides were so cold, seemed like they had come out of fridge. I asked for large shrimp cocktail and got like a 12oz serving cup for $9.95, I laughed and told waiter she said that is the large. Never going back to this restaurant you have been worned.
Waw this is the best restaurant in Harlingen I love it and I don't like people when they like to talk about this restaurant I think they just like to talk because there jealous to all the people pls go tray it you are going to love it ther new plates the new manger they have good waiters I just love it
I give this place a 1 out of 5.
Sides all reheated.... Rice was DRY. Probably not even cooked the same day.
Fish overcooked rubbery and bland.
Shrimp also overcooked rubbery and bland.
It is places like this that really upset me because they charge high fresh prices 12-13 for fried shrimp plates. Grilled fish can be 21+ dollars. On the other hand you could drive to Mcallen and go to Pappadeaux and pay 3-5 dollars more a head and get fantastic food.
To be worth attempting to eat this bad food they should not charge over 10 dollars for anything on the menu. Leaving the average plate at 5 dollars.
Terrible. Two thumbs DOWN
