I was blown away with the quality of this semi-pricey meal but soon learned why. They have a chalk board with fresh caught fish and the range is from $15-$20 and you pick the style and it could not be more tantalizing, and fresh. I highly recommend the taco style as you are in Austin, then have your fish blackened.... More

I've had very little experience with Food Trucks, but this place was amazing! The food was very tasty and had good portions. Would definitely try some of the other items they have.

Their location does not offer parking (although there is parking nearby), but if you are walking around downtown Austin and feel like a hearty Cajun-styled meal, this place isn't bad. It is located in a bar, so there are also plenty of televisions with sports on. It's not particularly family friendly, but one can get the food to go. I... More

Be sure to visit this joint for lunch when Trevor is there. We went a few times during our stay and the grilled grouper & fried shrimp were excellent.

Had the fried shrimp, Mahi tacos and grilled Grouper. All were good but the shrimp were my favorite. Staff were great especially Trevor. Friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about food. This place rocks and we will be back

These are hands down the best hush puppies we had anywhere on our travels! The chips and salsa were great and the tacos. Would go back again!

The pork chop plate is to die for, the cook takes good care in making sure it's tender and tasty, add jalapeno corn fritters and you have a great meal. Not to mention the cole slaw that comes with the plate. But enough about food, this is a combination bistro and sports bar, excellent service all the wait staff was... More

I have never rated a place this low before but I can't help this one. My son and I both ordered meals. I got the amberjack tacos, which cost $18 for two tacos. Very expensive but if they had been great, I would have been ok with that. My son got the grouper meal. The waitress asked if we wanted... More

Dined with 15 others for a birthday party as game four of the NBA finals was about to begin. Crowded, but timely service. Decent margarita at a reasonable price. Outstanding nachos smothered in cheese, scalloped potatoes also good, queso OK (I wouldn't order it again). Oyster Po boy sandwich full of oysters, tuna tacos delicious with large portion. Sampled the... More
