Mahi Nate


Location and contact

We offer our signature dish of true cast iron Blackened Mahi Mahi prepared in a way you will seldom find in South Padre Island, TX. We also have a very rare, actually never seen before in public, an extrordinarily large hand cut, skin on, crinkle french fry cooked in Peanut oil that you will never forget. We are located directly on the waterfront overlooking the bay.

We had the blackened mahi tacos , they were very good. The fries are huge in size and very tasty. This is a great little place run by a very nice guy. It doesn't look like much but it's a great little place.
