King Seafood

King Seafood

King Seafood is a local's best kept secret! They're known for there amazingly fresh and made-to-order dishes. You'll be licking the plate once you're done with your meal.

Best Seafood in Corpus Christi. The seafood is fresh, flavorful, great portions and not to pricey. -Lepricano

The Best Seafood in Town. There are numerous fried seafood joints in town, but Kings always edges out the rest. They keep their grease clean, they make the food to order, and the result is absolutely delicious. The half pound fries and shrimp is a favorite for me and the kids. The building is run down, and it takes a while to get the food because it's cooked fresh to order, but the quality of food is well worth it. Kings is one of those hidden hole-in-the-wall gems that everyone is looking for. -Chris E.
