Shrimp Heads

2832 El Cajon Blvd

Where has Shrimp Heads been all of my life??? This is the perfect addition to North Park. There’s plenty of parking, which tends to be a bit difficult to find in this area. As soon as I walked in, I was seated. The service is great! The music is perfect. The food is… so freaking delicious ! We were both so stuffed, but I somehow made room for the yummy fried Oreos and ice cream. My friend wasn’t able to eat his, so I had two servings. I never knew I’d love fried Oreos so much.

I drove by twice the day Shrimp Heads opened, and the line was wrapped around the building. So, we came a week after they opened. This is my new favorite spot. If you love awesome music, service, seafood, and dessert, you need to make your way to Shrimp Heads!!
