Cheap eats: Quality Seafood

There are a lot of Two-for-Tuesday deals around town. Radio stations even play two songs by the same artist back to back. Of all these promotions and such, none compare to Quality Seafood’s $2 seafood tacos and $2 draft beer between the hours of 6pm and 9pm. Besides the sweet-ass price, Quality offers some of the freshest seafood in town. In the same room they have an oyster bar, restaurant, and seafood market. And somehow they manage to avoid that fishy smell – working in various restaurants has taught me how hard it is to avoid that smell. They must thoroughly scrub every inch daily. But that alone won’t keep the fishy smell at bay. Your catch must be super fresh.

The tacos themselves are comprised of your choice of gulf shrimp, gulf snapper, or fresh catfish. All of those can be served grilled, blackened, or fried. I say get all nine combinations. That would still only be $18. Not too shabby. Quality Seafood also offers several sauces: Pico de gallo, verde cream sauce, mango pineapple, avocado pico de gallo, or roasted tomato salsa. Two dollars, people. Do it.
