    Less crowded than the one on Brookhurst. But quality of food isn't good. Too salty unless shrimps or king crab legs. But they cld serve old crab - ask for the fresh one like I did :p

    Ask for everything "Whole-Shabang," where the food is coated with an ingenious concoction made from butter, lemons, Zatarain's and lots of garlic--basically every flavor they have mixed into a bag. Read more

    Make sure your hands are clean, 'cause you will be seriously licking your fingers.

    Crawfish is what I always get. It might seem like they pay the people to form a crowd outside, but it's actually pretty good. I just don't think the wait is worth it.

    If you don't know what to get first time...get shrimp..1/2 shrimp and sharing fries does it for me. Newcomers usually aren't disappointed in shebang. My personal favorite is lemon pepper. Oh yeah if c

    If it's your first time, order 1/2lbs amounts of shrimp as it is the only item that can be ordered in that quantity. This allows you to taste more flavor & spiciness level combinations for your $$$.

    Get "the whole shebang" and get it at least medium. Mild is good too, but you gotta get the whole shebang. Shrimp, crawfish or crab, they're all good.
