Where To Eat {Hot Deals} 2015 Best Crawfish Restaurants

Published On March 25, 2015 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

When traveling down south, at the risk of stating the obvious, Houstonians love crawfish. Whether traditional Cajun or new-school Vietnamese, the residents of the Bayou City peel tails and suck heads as fast as restaurants all over the city can boil them.

Some people are so obsessed that they’re willing to eat small, early season specimens and pay prices that reach $10 per pound. That makes sucking down five pounds as expensive as a prime steak.

2015 guide to where to get your crawfish on

Sam’s Boat
When the weather is nice, the sprawling patio of this Richmond Strip institution may be one of the most pleasant places in the city. Round up some friends to split buckets of beer and platters of crawfish while basking in the sunshine. The traditional cajun seasoning is spicy.

Hank’s Crawfish
Credit the classic Cajun seasoning and diverse menu of non-crawfish options. Cheap drinks during happy hour make leaving the office early especially tempting.

Woodrows Heights
This small restaurant along the Washington Corridor may no longer be known as the Mardi Gras Grill, but it’s still a prime spot for crawfish — just be sure to check prices before committing to a big order.

Jolynn’s Crawfish
The restaurant’s boil is slightly sweeter than other restaurants (usually credited to orange juice); that twist means big crowds, especially on the weekends. Go during the week or expect a wait.

88 Boiling Crawfish & Seafood
The “88 Special” seasoning mix that blends traditional Cajun spices, lemon pepper and garlic butter keeps diners coming back for more. Those in a hurry may want to take advantage of the drive-thru.

Crawfish House
The former Que Huong has a new life as one of the hottest destinations for crawfish near Chinatown. The house special seasoning is a mix of Vietnamese-style garlic butter and traditional Cajun with a few secret ingredients (cumin, maybe?) that make for a particularly addictive mix. The combo platter of crawfish, shrimp and crab offers plenty of variety at a reasonable price.

Crawfish Cafe
Crawfish Cafe is another Chinatown spot that offers a few different flavors. Spice fans will want to indulge in the Thai basil, while those seeking a slightly sweeter approach should consider the house special mix of garlic butter and lemon pepper. Salt and pepper wings, boudain balls and crawfish eggrolls are all worth ordering, too
