The Boiling Shrimp takes great flavors of Southeast Asia and combines them with great culinary traditions of Louisiana. Their seafood is fresh and their boils are delicious. The "bang bang" sauce is an oil based, spicy sauce that they slather your boil with just before bringing it to you. This makes it very different than a traditional Cajun boil, but absolutely delicious. Their gumbo has a nice roux, and our raw oysters were fresh and very good. The service is excellent and the owners are very friendly. This place is definitely worth a try if you're traveling through Cleburne.

Surprise , surprise, surprise! This place has really good food and they give you plenty so if you leave hungry it's your own fault. I want to go back and try the crab cake pie. It's kind of an Asian-Cajun-Seafood with a Nautical theme. A wee bit pricey but worth it. Your taste buds will thank you for stopping in.
