While you’re enjoying your Port Aransas beach vacation, you’ll want to spend time at local attractions, but you’re bound to hear your stomach growl. Fuel up with a variety of foods from salads and sandwiches to rice bowls or tacos at Irie’s Island Easts. Stop by the eye-catching blue building only moments from the Gulf and step into island charm with brightly colored walls at 200 W Avenue G, Port Aransas, TX 78373. Give them a call at 361-749-2310.

Choose from chicken sate, handmade spring rolls, or the unique dragon queso. The sate features tropical BBQ-glazed chicken fire-grilled on bamboo skewers and topped with spicy peanut sauce, green onions, and toasted sesame seeds, while the dragon queso features chile con queso with black beans, red and green dragon sauces, and diced tomatoes served with house-made chips. Choose a basket for the table to share featuring Panko fried seafood like flounder, shrimp, or bay scallops served with fries, hush puppies, and a choice of a dozen sauces.


If you came for seafood, choose the jumbo Gulf shrimp, fire-grilled wahoo, “Sea Hog Enchiladas” – Gulf shrimp accompanied by smoked bacon, jack cheese, and roasted poblano enchiladas in roasted corn cream with red dragon sauce, black beans, and yellow coconut rice. Skip the meat or seafood and choose a fried avocado plate: fried avocado wedges with black beans, roasted corn, red dragon sauce, and queso fresca.

Big Tacos

Forgo the three-taco plate for one extra-large taco. House-made flour tortillas are stuffed with fillings like fried chicken, curried coconut shrimp, Panko mahi, pork and poblano, and other combinations. You’ll find one that’s right for you or ask about creating your own at Irie’s Island. Corn tortillas are available upon request.


If you’re looking for a smaller meal or just a little refueling, there are a myriad of salads to choose from. Choose a traditional mixed greens salad or add some flair with a chopped chicken salad filled with BBQ fire-grilled chicken breast, a spring roll salad featuring sliced and crispy spring rolls, and other unique flavors.

Rice Bowls

Load a rice bowl with chicken, shrimp, or veggies for a unique taste. Depending on your choice, you’ll savor the flavors of garlic or ginger butter, green onions, toasted sesame seeds, mushrooms, beef, fried eggs, and others.


For lunch or a smaller bite, there is a variety of sandwiches to choose from. Get your hands on flavors like chicken fried steak, crispy or grilled chicken, or grilled cheese. You’ll need two hands for the double cheeseburger with two quarter-pound angus patties, or any of the jumbo po’ boys featuring a choice of shrimp, fish, bay scallops, or oysters on a seasonal basis. The chicken banh mi boasts marinated and char-grilled chicken fillets. You can top any of them with extra cheese, thick bacon, fresh avocado, mushrooms, grilled onions, sesame slaw, or fried egg.


Make the meal your own by adding sides of your choice. Choose from mac & cheese, fried okra, sweet potato or French fries, hush puppies, black beans, and more to make your own tasty meal.


Quench your thirst with fountain drinks, iced tea, coffee, or a variety of bottled drinks. Adults can also pair their meal with a selection of beers or wines.


Wrap up your meal with a vanilla bean or chocolate creme brulee or unique Kokoleka pie – a chocolate and coconut layered pie topped with fresh whipped cream.
