Ok...I had seen this place on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and I'm not really one for "touristy" places, but this place hits the mark! I guess technically, it's not so much a touristy place as it's a locals place.

We arrived around 4 pm on a thursday and there were only a few people inside.
There were 2 girls working the fairly nice and one evil.
This is a counter-order place, then they will bring you your food on styrofoam plates with plastic cutlery.
They do serve beer as well as bottled Snapple products. There's also a fresh fish counter, to get some yummy stuff to cook at home.

So we got up to the counter and I totally forgot what I wanted to order, so we stepped out of line, to let the guy behind us, place his order. The evil girl said to us, "he doesn't know what he one ever does." Like really snotty. It wasn't funny or cute the way she said it.

ANYHOO....we settled on half a dozen raw oysters, 2 mahi mahi tacos and the grilled mahi-mahi in garlic, lemon butter with a salad with vinagrette dressing, a beer and a Snapple which we ordered with the fairly nice girl.

We grabbed a table and waited. maybe 10 mins later the grumpy girl brought our food over to our table. YUM! I couldn't wait to dig in.

I can't eat oysters, but hubby said they were wonderful.

The tacos were phenomenal! Fried mahi-mahi on soft corn tortillas with a fresh made white sauce, cabbage, tomato, onions and cheese.
First of all, they were literally had to hold them with 2 hands. That white sauce should be sold by the ton...I would put that on everything.

The grilled Mahi-mahi was a real nice peice of fish on a bed of rice, with a side salad. I gotta tell ya...that dressing was great! it's handmade and really surprising.
The fish was grilled to perfection and was totally enough for the two of us to share.
The huge tacos helped with filling us up, as well.

Midway thru our meal, hubby went back up to the counter to order another beer and came face to face with the evil one. He said he would like another beer and her response was, "You didn't order from me, so I don't know what you want."
REALLY? You treat customers like that? WOW.
He ordered his beer, we finished our wonderful food and left.

I would love to go back, but because of the horrible attitude of that one ruined it for us. Guess it's good we don't live there.

Just an FYI about the parking. There are meters in front of the building and a parking lot a little further up the street....but that's reserved for another restaurant. We meter parked about a block up the road.
The place is on a one-way street, so if you pass it, you have to around the block again.

The food was great, but poor service and crappy attitudes is huge turn off for me, but you should all at least try this place.

I'll add my pix later..........
