Chicken Flauntas and Tacos!

Absolutely delicious! it's a cute little outdoor surf style shack. First time I've been here after living in the area for 4yrs...I've heard great things from locals about the place but it's never open when we've gone by in the past ;) They have some crazy times to take a vacation, but I think it's... read more

Excellent for what it is! Great tacos, ice cold beer and friendly service. Cute little colorful outdoor dining area with fans and nice breeze under big oak trees. Cheap too! I highly recommend going here for a beer and a taco! Or three!

I keep hearing about how good this place is but now three times I have stopped during their advertised business hours and found them closed. Not sure what the story is but I have decided to stop trying.

I'm sorry you haven't made it to our shack. We pride ourselves on family and are a family run place. We always close for 10 days in August before school starts, but highly publicize on our website, facebook page & at our restaurant the dates so our customers can plan accordingly. Our business hours are Tuesday-Thursday 11ish-9pm, Fir & Sat... More

Best food around by far. Have tried most everything on the menu. Everything is awesome. My wife and I love feeling like part of the family. Everyone there is friendly and helpful. Can't wait till the next visit.

Great little spot where you stand in line, meet a lot of locals, and enjoy some very good freshly made from scratch traditional Mexican food on picnic tables. Love the burritos with 3 different homemade sauces. Don't like beans? No problem, they're an add on. 2 people can fill up on good food for under $20.

Our SUP guide recommended this place as a local favorite and suggested that we visit after the lunch rush. We went around 2pm and there was still a steady stream of regulars (which is always a good sign!). We both had the Shack combo (3 soft shell tacos) with various meat options (pork, chicken, steak, and beef). The guac was... More

This place has the best food and prices around. Love the ambiance but wish they had more seating! Get here early as the place fills up quickly and it can be hard to get a seat. Super Quick service and the food is cooked to order. My family loves this place!

My family really enjoys the fish tacos! Outside seating which unless you're used to Florida's swampy heat, you may not like it. t There are fans and the seating area is covered.
