Sammy's Shrimp Box was established in 2005. Formally Known as Tito Puente's Restaurant, Sammy's continues the great tradition of serving only the very best and freshest food to our dedicated customers. Only at the Shrimp Box we kept several of our famous Latino dishes and fabulous frozen tropical drinks. Since the beginning we believe some things are as true today as they were years ago; quality attracts customers, value earns respect and compromise in either is innappropriate. Our formula here at the Shrimp Box is very simple and traditional, just like at Sammy's Fish Box; serve the very best quality food, prepared Fresh daily in an uncomprimising manner and served in generous portions at affordable prices. We at Sammy's Shrimp Box wish to thank you, our customers, for your loyalty in the past and we promise to earn more of that loyalty in the future. Sincerely, Sammy
