This just in from our seafood-lovin’ intern, Sara:

Raquel Garcia’s Seafood Shack is the definition of a neighborhood dive (c’mon, it’s got shack right in the name!) with its Dairy Queen-esque structure and daily specials painted on the window. Heck, it’s even got a drive-through.

It also boasts some of the best ceviche in town, and on Mondays you’re practically robbing the place with happy hourmargaritas at $1.50, ceviche for $1.25, shrimp ceviche for $1.50 and
shrimp ceviche tostadas (pictured) for $1.50 each.

The lunchtime crowd is fun and eclectic; scoot up to the bar and rub shoulders with students from the nearby Cordon Bleu culinary school, businessmen, large Hispanic families with screaming children, and construction workers drinking copious amounts of beer at11:30 in the morning. Other good nights to go are Tuesdays (25-cent oysters) and Thursdays ($1.50 shrimp ceviche tostadas). Located on Webb Chapel just south of Forest Lane.
