Default South padre vacation

Had a blast for the past few days. The beer is cold and so is the water! Did some research here for places to eat..here are Some places recommend by y'all.
Cap n Roy's was awesome, blackened fish tacos and fumi salad. Louis sports bar, had awesome fajitas, and a sunset that can't be beat. Padre island brewing we had grilled quail pesto pizza, pretty good. No pictures, but we had an amazing breakfast at isabellas in port isabel. First time posting with tapatalk..see if this works

Those fish tacos look pretty good. The beer on the beach without work looks a lot better!

Captain Roy's is a favorite. The SPI brewing is great too. Always have to hit Wanna Wanna for drinks and shrimp cocktail. And Manuel's in port Isabel has great Mexican food, especially breakfast.

Cap-n-Roy's, Padre Island Brewing & Isabella's are 3 of our favorites but Isabella's has been closed the last 2 years when we were there unless they relocated?

Try Dirty Al's at the south end of the island. Good fried shrimp!

Go to The Meatball Café and order the lasagna!!!

Go to Pier 19 for breakfast and order the cinnamon roll and see if you can finish it (LOL) then go back there for dinner or to Sea Ranch.

Man that looks good. Went for a long weekend last summer and really enjoyed it. The one night we went out we went to Louie's Backyard and I have to say I wasn't impressed.

We didn't bring poles this time, we usually fish port Mansfield. So it's just a beach trip, or so I was told

We ate breakfast at Isabellas, and the chef house. Both highly recommended. Manuels is next!

If you guy's like ceviche you got to try " Ceviche Ceviche " the building north of McDonald’s. The Mahi-mahi is great and everything is freshly done in front of you.
