I entered this restaurant for supper at about 7:20. That was after dark, and the place was a little hard to find despite being one the main street through Dumas because it is in a small building with a dimly lit sign. The inside is bright and apparently clean, but has the rather bare appearance of a typical fast food restaurant, only with a Spanish language radio station with an obnoxious announcer playing excessively loud.
As implied by the restaurant's name, it specializes in numerous shrimp dishes. I ordered one with the shrimp cooked in a garlic and butter sauce. It was one of the best shrimp dishes that I have ever eaten, with about 9 large, juicy shrimp smothered in the tasty sauce. It included a generous helping of rice that, instead of the standard sweet tomato sauce had a delicious clear sauce flavored by some sort of herbs.
As with most Mexican restaurants, the dinner includes tortilla chips served immediately. The ones here were fresh and crisp, although thicker than I prefer. Customers help themselves to salsa from a bar with about 9 varieties in containers set on crushed ice. That's nice, except that there is no indication as to the ingredients of the various salsas (other than red or green) and so the customer has to guess.
The service was appropriately prompt, and it was about 7:45 by the time that I was finished. The place closes at 8:00, but a touch that was really unprofessional was that they were already putting the chairs up one the tables and mopping the floor.
The place has great food at reasonable prices, but lacks the sort of class needed for me to rate it excellent.
