Caliente

San Pedro | (501) 2236-2170

Located near the middle of San Pedro, Caliente is a part of Spindrift Hotel Resort. Here's one sure-fire reason to visit San Pedro for a mouth-watering helping of the specialty, tacos.

Although margaritas are really the most popularly ordered item on the menu, Mexican-Caribbean is their style, with free chips and salsa served with every meal and fresh guacamole offering a refreshing topping. They are know for their curries, ginger rum shrimp, blackened snapper, Jalisco snapper, and authentic sauces. Stop by on Friday for Taco Night, where they offer half price Margaritas, and they have recently added salbutes as a lunch special on Wednesdays.

Palapa Bar & Grill

San Pedro | (501) 226-2528

Palapa Bar & Grill

Palapa Bar & Grill is located along the northeastern outskirts of San Pedro. It's worth noting that within the genre of food with Caribbean flair, this place is particularly known for its barbecue and desserts.

When still on solid ground, choose from chicken wings, sausage dip, pulled pork sandwiches, smoked fish spread and many specialties of the house. Also enjoy less unique dishes like onion rings or a simple hamburger. Their huge half-pound hamburger is a big seller. Don't leave without sampling their very sinful deep fried bacon drizzled in chocolate! Every order made fresh, never frozen.
