Boiled seafood (Crabs/Shrimp) on the Gulf

Help please! Spent 2 hours this morning trying to find info on boiled seafood (crab at this time of year) along the Gulf for a trip down there today.
I have to believe there are numerous places but they are so poorly advertized as to be almost impossible to find. (And yes, the sort of places I am looking for would not likely have Web sites or anything.) Local knowledge only. Particularly interested in the LA border down to about Corpus C. The only place I saw mentioned with any frequency was the Boiling Pot in Rockport. If this is affiliated with the one of the same name in Austin it's OK but not quite the thing I was looking for (read inferior portion size ! :-) ). Maybe I am off track and boiled seafood is not that much to be found in the way it is in Louisiana? But any down-home out-of-the-way (but GOOD!) seafood places recommendations would seem to be a very welcome addition for those familiar with the Texas Gulf Coast.
And please include approximate hours and days of operation: I tend to want to travel down Sundays (as per today) and this can be problem.
Thanks in advance.
