They have the absolute best grouper tacos around. They're not on the menu so you have to ask for them. I would consider myself a fish taco connoisseur and these are the best around.

Description
Mike and Brian started at the Port of Indecision. for those of you who dont know where that is, it's about three Marlintini's southeast of Disorder. While Mike studied life at sea, Brian studied life at bars. Neither able to pass their SAT's our fathers said stay in school - don't be a fool. But we had to see what life was all about. So we've come to the town of Sutherland seeking fame and fortune. We've got a catchy name. We might say Good Day, we might call you Darlin',but most of all we thank you! Thirsty Marlin.
