Fun. Fun . Fun – Fun place with decent mexicano type food and good drinks ;) friendly service. Open all year. Drafty around the windows in the winter. Great place for a good time
Inauthentic and disappointing – Sharky's is inauthentic Mexican food at its very worst.
The decor is exactly what you'd expect - a busy collection of shark signs and beach paraphernalia. Wait staff were friendly, and we were seated fairly quickly for a busy night. The food took quite a while to arrive, and we had a chance to ponder the impressive collection of drinks - including the Watermelon Margarita.
We were dismayed by the salsa and chips (which we should have taken as a warning). They were not complimentary, as is usually the case, and the pico de gallo salsa consisted of bland unripe chopped tomatoes and was utterly without flavor. The chips were room temperature, thick, and tasteless. The guacamole was equally distressing and tasted like it was made from over-ripe avocados.
The entrees were similarly disheartening. Tacos were served on a plastic tray, on a bed of cold shredded cabbage (the most palatable part of the meal.) The refried beans were a tasteless fluid. Which is what I wish the enchilada sauce had been.
The enchiladas themselves were languishing somewhere in the bottom of a deep puddle of dark brown sauce which tasted strong, bitter and was vaguely reminiscent of barbecue sauce.
The chili relleno is a monstrous deep fried mountain of sadly abused poblano peppers.
Everything was kind of icky, tasteless, and nothing like real Mexican food. For prices this expensive ($14.95 for an entree), the food really should be better. Maybe it's not so bad if you're just drinking. I will never know.
