I don't think I have EVER had better Gulf seafood (shrimp, oysters, blue crab, snapper, flounder) than we found last night at Pacific Star.
It's exactly the right combination of Texas Gulf-coast fried, Cajun, and South Texas Mexican, with a smidgeon of New England crab house, and it's as fresh as you can get!
The menu is straightforward - they do 10-12 things and they do them right. Prices are super affordable.
I especially recommend the Oyster and Shrimp Diablo appetizers, and the broiled shrimp skewers; but folks all around us (obviously regulars) were ordering and raving about the huachinango (broiled snapper).
The atmosphere is perfect, too, for this flavour of dining. It's small, a little bit dumpy but not dirty, loud, upbeat, intimate in a neighborhood kinda way, and the service is excellent. The emphasis on freshness and quality is very very obvious.
Pros: Inexpensive, Yummy, Atmosphere
