OPEN: 7 DAYS A WEEK

MONDAY- FRIDAY: 10-6

SATURDAY: 9-6

SUNDAY: 10-5

Hi Everyone!
Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding this past Saturday.
What a crazy weekend we had this past weekend. You never know when a possible disaster can happen but when you wake up to a call from your suppliers at 4:45 A.M on Saturday morning telling you that the farmers were not able to catch enough crawfish for my orders and our back up supplier had their truck flip over, I got into the survival mode and did everything I could to come through with all the crawfish that was needed to meet my orders. By putting together three really good suppliers, they worked together and made it happen.
What initially started the problem was the amount of crawfish that was consumed on Easter Weekend. The Crawfish suppliers have told me that this was the biggest weekend that they have experienced in a long time and it caused a shortage for this past weekend. Especially for big crawfish.
We came through, not everyone got the size crawfish they ordered but we got everyone the best crawfish that we could get from our suppliers. Thanks again everyone, I really appreciate your support!!
 
This week, we are playing it safe by limiting the #1 Select Crawfish. The farmers are telling us to scale back on #1 Select orders so they can make the Washed and Graded real nice.
This week, we will be offering the Graded and Washed and Large Mixed Field runs and a limited amount of Selects.
So get ready for another great weekend and make it a weekend to bring together your friends and family.
It’s amazing how Crawfish cookouts bring so many people together.
Don’t forget about our cooked crawfish on Saturday’s.
We sell out every weekend, so reserve your orders.
THESE ITEMS SEEM TO BE THE BIG SELLERS EVERY WEEKEND WHEN WE HAVE REALLY NICE WEATHER.
AND BY THE WAY, IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT WE CARRY WAHOO AND COBIA, THESE TWO FISH WILL PROBABLY BE SOME OF THE BEST FISH YOU’VE EVER HAD. I’M CERTAIN YOU’LL LOVE IT.
 
LOOK THESE FISH UP ON THE INTERNET AND LOOK THROUGH SOME OF THE EASY TO GRILL RECIPES AND YOU’LL FIND A GOOD ONE TO MAKE IT EASY AND DELICIOUS.
(BIG SELLERS THIS PAST WEEKEND: WAHOO, COBIA, GROUPER, RED SNAPPER, MAHI, TUNA, HALIBUT AND SEABASS AND ALL OF OUR SALMON AND U-10 GULF SHRIMP)
ALL OF THESE ITEMS ARE GREAT ON THE GRILL!
