06/01/2014Dirty Al's Seafood Market & Cajun Kitchen
To start off high, our waiter was the best (I even tipped him twice as much as I ever do) and the manager was great in helping out (not stuck in an office like most). The atmosphere was nice, well decorated place, but after 3 weeks since their opening and three attempts since then to get in under 30 minutes with the anticipation to have real seafood, Well, that's where DA fell very short. Contrary to the excess of business keeping you from getting you in the place, it's real obvious they are have to dish out alot of fish at once, so it came out overdone and you can tell it's being stacked in a pile, because of how soggy and floppy it is. Should be golden and crispy. Now, would I ever go back, sure, but not anytime soon. Maybe when the "new" wears off a bit more more and can get in sooner than 5 minutes it may be worth the wait. The orders will be farther apart and more attention can be paid to each individual order. Dont feel too bad, though, it's done to kids all over in overcrowded schools. The teachers can only do what they can under the circumstances.
Food is good. I like their guadalajara fajita and their tamarindo margaritas. The place is nice, furniture not so great (UGLY tables). Somehow you feel like you have little intimacy in there, i guess the space is too open and bright. Customer service not so great. First time i went the waiter forgot our drinks, we waited a really long time probably more than 15 min to get margaritas. we needed to ask someone else for the margaritas, because our waiter disappeared. 2nd time a different waiter, he kept on placing the tostadas and salsas on the other extreme of the table where no one was sitting.....THOSE kids need training on customer service ASAP before people get tired of it. I know they can do better than that.
Unique cuisine for Brownsville,, wine by the glass , good selection at reasonable price,can't wait to see what finished dining room will look like with the largest wine cellar in Brownsville,,Chef Nori is the best!
