Our party of three couples ordered the Bontana Platter (40 pieces of fish, shrimp, and oysters) for $38.75 and it was delicious and more than enough for lunch. The shrimp and fries were especially good and the fish (flounder) and oysters were excellent as well. All the seafood was fresh, fried to perfection, and not greasy. The restaurant is not fancy but we were there for the food not the atmosphere. At an average cost of about $6.50 per person the meal was an excellent value. Looking at the menu, I don't see how it was possible for the reviewer who ordered an appetizer, two entrees, and two kids meals to have a $90 bill. Considering the restaurant is on South Padre, we all though the overall prices very reasonable. Although the restaurant was busy, our service was prompt, friendly. and attentive. Any future visits to South Padre will definitely include a stop at Dirty Al's and we all would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a seafood meal at a reasonable price.
