We went here because we were in Miami for just one day (got off a cruise and waiting for a flight). We did a search on Triple D (Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives) and this was on the list. We drive 20 minutes to get...More

I also read the reviews and we came out of our way. The food was bland and actually really pricey for food from a shack. I had fish tacos and it was bland, husband had fish and chips and said it was mostly breaded and...More

Perhaps we hit this place on an off day. Three of us shared the smoked fish spread as an appetizer. It was not very smoky and the flavor was definitely off. My sister had the fish tacos, there was a very generous serving but no...More

Don't pull in and pull out like we almost did. This place is nice and clean but doesn't have a lot of curb appeal. The food is fantastic, and the reason it is so good is because Chef Jimmy is not only well-trained and talented,...More
