“Good Food but smokers restaurant”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

After biking on South Padre, we were hungry and stopped into T & J's per recommendation. The first thing that hits you is the smell of cigarette smoke. I would have gone somewhere else but my friends insisted on the great food. The Food was great. We got a table down in the corner and opened up all the windows, which helped. The rustic atmosphere is cool, but the chairs may be a little too rustic as the backs were not sanded/varnished well and pricked my shirt, thus ruining it. The service was also very good.

“Too smoky”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went in here with our kids and immediately wanted to leave. In fact, we were seated and I asked the waitress if they had a non-smoking section and they did not. We decided to eat somewhere else and we went to the Big Donkey instead. Really glad we did, we loved that place!

“Skip it”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We ate here on Christmas day becuase there were only 2 restaurants on the island open ... our first choice ran out of food. I didn't care for the atmosphere here and found most of the servers to be rude or more concerned with their friends at the bar than the customers at their tables. The food was good but there is nothing special about it or the place itself.

“Recommended.....not!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This place was recommended by the clerk at our hotel. THere weren't many people inside, the service was good & friendly. My complaint is the claim that the "shrimp came right off the boat.."..my eye they came off the boat, maybe last year and they spent a fair amount of time in the freezer. I've eaten plenty of fresh shrimp right out of the trap and these had been frozen, with a hint of freezer burn. ( If thery're frozen admit it...don't try and pass off frozen for fresh)
The fish tacos were good and spicy and the burger was ok, but after my experience with the appetizer, the rest of the dinner was suspect. It was also a fair bit over priced. I'd try somewhere else first.
