Sketchy neighbourhood and doesn't look like much from outside. Standing room only! The food is out of this world. Fresh fish and seafood, great prices, CASH ONLY! The shrimp are unbelievable.

Went here after going to opening day at the new Marlin's Stadium....I saw this on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives...wellll, from the outside it looks like a dive and from inside too! BUT, the food was very good...the shrimp was awesome ( try the green sauce!) the Pan Minuta sandwich was excellent and my Bro in law had the shrimp sandwich....everything was great....try it you'll like it!

The fish is as fresh as you can get! The only down side is the standing up while eating. The prices are unbelievably cheap! This place was featured on the show, "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives." I eat here whenever in the area!

Found this restaurant as recommended by Guy Fieri, host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The food is very fresh, the prices is not cheap but it is worth every cent that you paid. This is a family joint doing seafood the way their grandparents did back in Cuba.
Ordering the food is quite simple, smiply go up to the counter and they will give you a menu, if you are unsure what to order, ask them what is popular. They also have special of the day on the board. There are no chairs, you have to eat by the counter. We had the lobster, breaded shrimp - Camarones Fritos, crab bites(special of the day), fried red snapper sandwich (recommended by them), conch fritters, fish soup (I saw someone having it and it looked good). After you have finish, they will ring up the total and you pay them. Simple as that. We had our fill of seafood plus ordered them to go for the flight back to Seattle, way better food than the food in the airport!

All the employees are now wearing tee shirts reading, "Who says everything's fried?" So I ordered King Fish with peppers and capers. My brother got the fried lobster. Mine was superb: a huge slab of fish, grilled and then simmered in a delectable, thin sauce. The peppers were not over-cooked (there were no capers). Fried lobster was somewhat disappointing...I mean, why fry lobster in the first place? The delicate lobster flavor got lost in the coating and oil. The prices are very reasonable. You stand at a counter to eat. Very much worth the experience.
