Crawfish Fever Pitch!

Good Ole Boys Crawfish

Mardi Gras revived our appetite for home cooked Cajun—and it hasn’t quit since! Now, on the heels of Fat Tuesday, mudbug madness is starting to spread. That’s what you and I call crawfish season throughout South Texas.

Chances are your favorite spot for down-home Creole cookin’ has already played host to a boil or two. No surprise there. Crawfish is the kind of hands-on communal cuisine that fosters tradition and memorable times among family and loved ones. So grab a bib, and pinch and peel to your heart’s content!

Terrific offerings from some famous spots like Brennan’s of Houston, Gaido’s and Harold’s below!
