The Blue Shrimp was a great Mexican dining experience. I had a wonderful "Shrimp Flambe" prepared near the table. The prices were low and the food was fabulous. A warning - they do not accept credit cards so bring cash.

My husband had the shrimp that was the special, they cooked it right in front of him, and he said it was delicious. He had shrimp at alot of places while we were there, and said this was the best. Nice outside location.

My husband & I ate here a few times this vacation due to the excellent food and prices are quite good. They actually add spices to the food to make it more flavourful.
