Thursday is $2.00 taco night. So I had beef tacos and the wife had shrimp taco's. We also ordered two Bloody Mary's. The taco's were good, but were the all to common "Americanized" tacos, similar to Taco Bells. They lacked traditional mexican spices and flavor.

Best Bushwackers on the island, but the food is horrible. Wait staff is inconsistent as well. Managers try hard at least!!!!

The shrimp tacos are amazing!! Delicious!Sauce was fantastic. Just spicy enough but not too much. Want to come here every day! Came on a Wednesday so burgers were a special. Husband loved it. Chips were better than great. Fries were scrumptious. And the Bushwackers are so delicious! Definitely coming back here!!!

Fun place, ok food, prompt service, great t-shirts. We were there for a slow low key lunch but I can see that during high season this is one hopping place.

On our way to the Fort Morgan ferry, we stopped at Tacky Jack's for lunch. The shrimp and grits were excellent, the service was friendly and efficient. We recommend Tacky Jack's.

We went with a large group from our condo. We had excellent service considering the size of our group. All seemed satisfied with the food. My wife and I had the hamburgers on the special. They were very good.
