“Great food and service”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Lots of daily specials at reasonable prices. Look for coupon in South Padre visitors' coupon booklet to get an excellent shrimp cocktail for free (only 99 cents w/o coupon). Service was great, portions generous, and selections very tasty. We had their special of the night which was enchiladas (shrimp, chicken, or beef). We had the chicken which was very flavorful; others in our party had the shrimp which they raved about. Will definitely go back.

“Just OK”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Phoned for a 7:30 reservation for a party of 14.Wasn't overly crowded and the table was setup for us. Had the buffet but should have ordered off the menu. Perhaps it was too late in the evening. The food was dried out and picked over. Would not have again. Those that ordered from the menu were satisfied with their meal. Took a long time to get our drinks.
The best part of the visit was the live entertainment that started about 8:00. Very good performers.

“Buffet a bit tired!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Went tonight for their buffet. Food was cold and very tired. I should have known better than to try it. This restaurant could really use a visit from Chef Ramsey. Today is ground hog day and I wonder if that is what they were serving on the buffet. Service is very inexperienced. For the price I would try someplace else. I did enjoy the entertainer but he too should not quit his day job,

“Seafood & prime rib buffet”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We had been wanting to go to their Prime rib & seafood buffet for some time. I wish we had waited. The buffet was terrible. The seafood botani was dried out and did not have any seafood in it. The deep fried shrimp was way over cooked. The prime rib was also overcooked & dried out. It seemed that the staff was overwhelmed by the nuber of customers they had. The owners however seemed to be more interested in singing than in the quality and apperance of the food on their buffet. We will not be going back. They should paint the walls that have the grafitti from spring breakers on it.

“Good Margaritas and live entertainment too!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We had supper at Padre Ritas. Like the choices on their salad bar and their blue cheese dressing had nice chunks of bleu cheese. My husband had the scampi dish and the shrimp were large and succulent. I had the fillet and it was cooked just as I ordered. We enjoyed their house margaritas too! Service was good and they had a lady playing a gutar and singing inside. Or you could sit out on the patio. Not much for views since they face the road but good drinks, prices and food.
