Went for dinner after someone at our hotel recommended Food Dudes to us at the pool. Love the mix of seafood and Mexican. Rave reviews all around from my friends. The fish tacos we're so good. The marinade on the mahi mahi has a little...More

We stopped in here for a quick casual bite and were happy to arrive early to get a seat. This place filled up quickly. I had the pulled pork tacos and they were okay..nothing special, not seasoned like carnitas. Reasonable prices and quick service.

Stumbled upon Food Dudes after a long drive to the beach and just wanted a quick bite to eat. We knew we found a gem when we walked in and the place was packed. If you know this place its not a very big joint!...More

Once again, Food Dudes did not disappoint! This time we did the chili garlic shrimp spring rolls first, followed with the marinated mahi mahi fish tacos and ended with key lime pie. As always, the food was divine and the service was phenomenal!

Excellent food and service. Taco Thursday offers an extensive variety of tacos at just $4 per taco a la carte. We had the tuna and fish, and were not disappointed. Starts at 4 pm.

When we arrived around 6:30pm there were only a few cars parked on a Saturday night. Although it is a small place, there was only 1 family of 4 and a woman eating at the bar. We were a bit worried but by the time...More

I had the avocado bacon cheeseburger which was amazing!! It’s a small quaint place so there isn’t much seating. It would be best to get there fairly early because wait times tend to be long during peak season. The wait staff was super friendly and...More
