“Restaurants Close Early”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The Food Shark is a food truck parked under a shaded outdoor area and a nice set up of tables and booths (all outdoors). It was conveniently located and easily accessible. The menu looked good and the prices seemed reasonable though a bit on the high side. The food must have been good because there were a lot of patrons. The downside: it closes at 3pm. We weren't hungry when we first arrived and by the time we went it was already closed. They also run out of food as indicated by menu items crossed off. We found that most of the restaurants in town closed early. I guess they don't need the business.
