I have to eat at POETS at least once when I return to Corpus Christi, my hometown. I always get the fajitas - half/half - which is half chicken and half beef. Can't forget to add the guacamole. Service and the food is always fast and friendly. Love the chips and salsa!!

Have family members that have eaten here for years. All types of food. Very family friendly. Very crowded though and slow service. Margaritas were good. They give u lots of food. The person that ordered burger enjoyed it. Most of us got Mexican food. The food is thick and you get lots of it but I would not go there... More

Have been eating at POETS for years. Sam and the crew offer the best service in town. The fajitas are the famous dish, homemade tortillas compliment the dish. Casual dining, The restaurant is a bit dated and could use some sprucing up however, the food allows me to look past that.

POETS is one of the two restaurants I always visit when I come to town. The food is excellent (especially the fajitas - I get half and half - chicken and beef) - and love the guacamole. The service is always great too.

It was my first time here and looking at the menu it was real hard to figure out what they specialize in. They have a little bit of everything. I ended up ordering chicken fried chicken and was not that great. It tasted like fried chicken and green beans tasted like canned green beans. Nothing special but they had good... More

We went to POETS to listen to the live music Destiny. The music was wonderful! The service, however was horrid. We were treated as if we were a huge inconvenience for the server. The food was ok at best. We will go back to hear the live music, but we will eat before we go there

I ordered shrimp. You would think they would at least serve fresh seafood being that we live on the coast. The appetizer taquitos were the kind you get in a box at the grocery store. Shrimp was frozen and rubbery. My husband ordered King Ranch chicken. It was so bad and he never complains about food.

I've only been to P.O.E.T.S twice; pleased both times with my choices and the tastes I had off other choices. The fried shrimp is excellent - Nice and crispy on the outside but not over-done! I tend to judge a restaurant by the salads and baked potatoes! Silly I guess, but I love salad and baked potatoes and YES you... More
