The city of Port Aransas does not allow food trucks to operate within the city limits. If you want a good meal, snack or drink on the quick and you want high quality there are some excellent places to go.
Here is one of the famous places. It is called Tropical Sno and is in the parking lot of a liquor store. As you can see, it is kind of busy. Yes, those are people standing in line. There are two cute signs in the window that you can read in this photo.
“Here I am. What are your other two wishes?” and “Making Mouths weird colors.”
Another outlet is the Lemonade stand. Here is one run by some young folks. They make a mean Arnold Palmer. (Of course, they never heard of Arnold Palmer)
For some real down home cooking with a gourmet flair, you can’t beat John Shaw and his Hog Island Taco stand. Here is what he was cooking yesterday.
Sounds delicious and you can bet it is. John is a fabulous cook and puts out some satisfying, delicious food.
Here is a shot of the outside of John’s restaurant.
Inside was jam packed with folks waiting for their food. That’s Johh Shaw on the left doing the cooking.
When any of us get the craving for fresh shrimp, we go to the dock and check out when the next load of shrimp is do to arrive.
It looks like when you are reading this blog, I should be down standing in line for $5.00 a pound jumbo shrimp.
Here is the boat that brings it all in. The Polly Anna.
Well, that’s the View for this week.
