Cap’N Roy’s

Shrimp Tacos

Many folks dream of retiring to South Padre Island and filling their days sport fishing in the Gulf, but what does a South Padre fishing guide actually do when he retires? Well, Captain Lee Roy opened a restaurant. Given his expertise with fish, it’s no surprise that his seafood tacos are super. The fish tacos are, ahem, stuffed to the gills with flaky meat, but our all-time favorite is an old standard—grilled shrimp with the traditional shredded cabbage and pico, wrapped in fresh corn tortillas. 

1313 Padre Blvd, South Padre Island, 956-761-9990. Open 7 days.
