We LOVE this restaurant. Weekly stop after cleaning. You won't be disappointed with the service and food. Matt is awesome and the walking tacos are the bomb.

We ate at Flip Flop Deli Shop based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. One of the few times Tripadvisor has let me down.
First the good... The service was super friendly! After a long day at the beach it was great to a smile! The prices were super cheap.
Now for the bad. The food quality was that of a little league baseball game concession stand. Sandwiches were tasteless, nachos had canned "cheese" and a hair....
I wart to give this place a better rating because the service was so friendly but the food just did not measure up.

Greg I'm sorry we did not measure up to your expectations. We are a simple beach food place. At $3 for nachos I'm not sure what you expected. As far as a hair...I wish you would have let us know. We would have made you something new or returned your money. That has never happened since opening as we have the girls all wear their hair back, but I apologize for that if it was one of our workers. As far as the sandwiches...our meat is sliced by hand by us. We offer a variety of condiments. We use only the freshest bread. Maybe you needed a little sauce on your sandwich? I am glad you were satisfied with the service, we do strive to make people happy. If you are ever back in Gulf Shores, be sure to stop in. I don't believe you gave us the opportunity to fix anything when you were here last, as you made no complaint in person.

We had ice cream and shaved ice here two times. We wish we would have found out about it earlier in our vacation and had time to dine here. Menu looked wonderful, especially the taco pizza! Super friendly people and very family-oriented. Kids got to use chalk to leave their signature on the outdoor porch which was a highlight for them.

Wonderful customer service!! We visited 4 times the week we were there! Loved "the boyfriend" shaved ice! We are from Arkansas and felt right at home with the Razorback flags! Great family atmosphere!! Will definitely visit again!
