“YOU FOOLED ME AGAIN”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This was a terrible experience. After reading to reviews we were excited to go to lunch here. At first we were sure we had the wrong restaurant. The shrimp was out of a freezer bag and the gumbo was too spicy and had enough salt to cure meat. The bath room is frightening. I have this one an average because the service was good but the food was poor and atmosphere is like a biker bar.

“I would drive back to Mississippi just to eat here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I have never had a better steak sandwich in my entire life. In addition to the friendly staff and fantastic down-home atmosphere (looks a little sketchy on the outside), everything we tasted was fantastic and more than fairly priced (it really was a steal).
Out of 10 days travelling from Savannah to Texas, this was our favorite place (and we are foodies who really research our culinary destinations).

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Introduced to Tarantos few years ago by relatives in the area! Always the best! We're on our way back to Little Rock from Navarre Beach and drove 2 hours out of our way to eat here! Best of everything! Far better than seafood we had in FL! The best! Gabby,Cricket and Cindy were outstanding! Can't wait for our next trip south !

“Eat dem bugs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great little out of the way place yet convenient to I-10. Wonderful crawfish, spiced just right. Waitress was very pleasant and upbeat, my grandson and I had seconds they were so good! Menu had lots of other options which looked great as they passed by our table.

“The Best we had all week!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

So thankful we found the good reviews, & found their location! Food was wonderful as was the service. We ate all along the coast all week & none were this gooooood! Crawfish much bigger & fresher than other places. Oysters & shrimp so good, too. Wish we'd found it at beginning of vacation!
