THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tony's Mexican Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Seafood is the theme of this inland eatery---say, sizeable shrimp burritos slathered with guacamole and sour cream, or Baja-style shrimp, octopus, or scallop cocktails marinated in lots of lime and cilantro. True, decor and atmosphere are not Tony’s long suits but serving Mexican cuisine with authentic flavors is. Anyway, given our penchant of wearing a bit of everything we eat, why would we dress up for the fragrant Siete Mares---Seven Seas---soup, the spicy shrimp a la diabla, succulent carnitas or beef tamales? In the morning, Tony’s scrambles up a mean chorizo and eggs.
