Hot & Juicy Crawfish

Hot & Juicy Crawfish Review

Just west of the Strip, this busy, bare-bones eatery has developed a loyal following for its delicious, fresh seafood, where crawfish from Louisiana is delivered every morning. Walk inside and you'll detect a heady aroma of garlic and spices—tables covered with durable plastic wrap, each with its own roll of paper towels, attests to the joyous, messy meals that occur here. The shellfish (lobster, crab, mussels, clams, shrimp, and crawfish), priced at the going market rate, must be ordered by the pound. Then you select a seasoning (Juicy Cajun, garlic butter, or lemon pepper, for example) and spice level. When your shellfish boil appears in its plastic bag, put on the plastic bib and dig in! Baskets of fried poultry and seafood are neater alternatives and come with Cajun fries. Sides include corn fritters, corn-on-the-cob, and sweet potato fries, plus a credible étouffée. Premium and domestic beer is still a bargain here.
