Castaways TacoRita and Beach Bar can be seen from Gulf Boulevard but there is no on-street parking. I would suggest turning on 135th Street and then turn right into the first alley you come to. There is parking behind Castaways and in a couple of lots a little farther down. We parked behind the building and wandered in through the back door. We were cheerfully greeted and directed to sit where we pleased. The bar was our choice.
Castaways advertises margaritas, but these are wine based. They only serve beer and wine, so we chose a Modelo for me and a Chard for mi esposa. There is an assortment of tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and quesadillas on the menu in addition to flat-bread pizzas.
My bride chose the enchiladas with cheese and chicken rolled in two tortillas and topped with queso and red sauce. This was both a filling and flavorful choice.
I decided to go for the gut-bomb, what Castaways calls The Super Ty One Taco. This monster had a hard corn taco shell inside a white queso lathered flour tortilla filled with pork, chicken, ground beef, black beans, guacamole, rice, cheddar cheese, and red sauce.
Our server wisely suggested whittling this decadent delight down a bit with a fork instead of trying to pick it up right away. I took her advice. That would have been a mess otherwise. To say I was full after downing this beast would have been an understatement. That was a shame because Castaways has churros on their dessert menu. Maybe next time!
Two dinners with beer and wine came to a pocket pleasing $34.61.
