When i got to the restaurant which was about 1:45pm they told me that i couldnt use my groupon til after 5pm. He said thats how the owner wants it from now on. So i asked when did they start this. He tells me today. I told him that they should update the groupon if thats how they want it to be.

They changed the Groupon rules, without informing the customers. They realized that was not fair so they honored the original rules. The shrimp were delicious.

The wait for food was close to 20 minutes and they weren't crowded and the Shrimp were terribly over cooked. I felt like this was a waste of time and money.

From Our Editors

"We have happy shrimp here. They talk to us. They sing to us," answered the Chef when asked why Joey's Shrimp House is one of Chicago's best. That question was posed by Chicago's Best, a program that spotlighted Joey's in a segment on the city's top seafood. Host Brittney Payton declared, "Bubba Gump ain't got nothing on Joey," after indulging in one of Joey's po' boys. Those hearty, two-fist sandwiches, which pack a baguette with literally dozens of those jolly singing breaded shrimp, are just one of the many savory surprises at this Humboldt Park restaurant.

Like if New Orleans and Puerto Rico gave birth to a shrimp shack, the menu takes tongues to corner of creole and Caribbean. Classic seafare, such as crispy or sautéed shrimp or grilled mahi-mahi, gets kicked up a notch with island spices, and Puerto Rican favorites such as the jibarito sandwich or the mofongo (that's a garlic and plantain mash) come packed with skirt steak or creole shrimp. Classics like surf 'n' turf get a flavor punch of arroz con gandules (that's a tasty combo of rice, pigeon peas, and pork). And although it offers take-out and delivery, the colorful dining room is covered in nautical charm and makes for a perfect place to hear the happy shrimp sing their swan songs.
