“Very Disappointing”
Review of Perico's Restaurant - CLOSED

Perico's Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 March 2016

This was not our first visit but may be our last! Entertainment was good, Dev and the Dynamics but the service was absolutely horrible. Took forever to get served, and when we did, no silverware provided or condiments. Had to ask for everything. Refills for drinks were non existent and after asking for one the waitress brought it I her hands! Not as expected with a cover charge.

We had lunch at Perico's. They have unbelievable specials for lunch. You get so much food for $6.00 and change. I had beef tacos and enchiladas. They were both delicious. We also enjoyed our bartender. She was super friendly and made terrific Margaritas.

Their entertainment is a joke. They pay an old man named "Tony Blake" to sing on stage. He was terrible. He was so bad that he was singing with his head turned to the speakers afraid to sing. Then he looked at his watch all night hoping it would be over soon. So did we! After he lip synced a few songs he gave up and tuned into a DJ, playing songs and dancing to the music. I say dancing, but really, he is a 75 year old man and moves like one.

Upon first glance, it looks like a local watering hole and to be honest, it is. We've always driven by and it looks interesting so we stopped in for a glass of wine and ordered fish and the shrimp tacos since they were the special of the day. I can say with every confidence, these taco's were far better than I ever expected. On a scale of 1 to 10, these tacos ranked around an 8 and I'd put them up against many of the more "upscale" high-dollar restaurants.

We stopped by to hear some live music and have dinner. They actually had live music out front in a kind of open bar area and more live music inside!

The place is larger on the inside than you might think looking at the building from the front. We did not really hear the outside group. Looked like a 2 or 3 piece combo with a guitar player featured. The inside group was great though. A 50's du whop group with an outstanding female vocalist and 4 guys all performing to a karaoke rhythm track.

The place had pleasant Mexican themed glitzy decorations, and was a single large room. Reminded me of an airplane hangar, and the acoustics did nothing to offset that impression.

Service was reasonably quick. The food though, was mediocre Tex Mex. If we go back, and we might just to hear that girl sing, we will avoid the Tex Mex and try to just get a burger.

All on all it was a pleasant visit but not a great choice for dining. There is a place in downtown Cape Coral on the main drag with great Mexican food but no entertainment. Go there to eat and come here to have a drink and hear a great group.
