“DELICIOUS”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

This place is amazing, try the pound of shrimp with corn on the cob inside (and/or sausage if you want) SHABANG style, which means a variety of the flavors for sauce. Also, you can pick the level of spicey-ness and get a side order of rice, or unique french fries (even sweet potato fries). It is a very unique and fun-filled, happening place. Bring a sharpie to sign your name on the wall, and be prepared for a messy, yummy meal.

“Absolutely amazing, my ultimate favorite place to get my grub on.”
Reviewed 9 October 2010

This is definitely my favorite place to eat. The long can be super annoyingly wait but it's definitely worth it. I always make sure I drop by at least once whenever I'm in the State of California.

Here's a tip if you don't want to wait too long: Order togo, your order will be ready in approximately 15 minutes and just find a nearby place to eat if you're not from the area, and if you are, just eat it at home! My friends and I all ordered what we wanted and went to a nearby park to eat it, it tasted absolutely delicious. I've been to more than 4 different locations, Southern & Northern, tastes the same.

A definite must-try for those who loves seafood, crawfish, shrimps, it's just all too good! My mouth is watering as I am talking about it, thinking about making a spontaneous trip to Cali just for it ;)
