Sal’s Gumbo Shack in Long Beach has excellent gumbo. The roux is delicious, says bigmista, and there’s tons of shrimp, crab, sausage, and chicken, in big chunks.

“Quick note: If you are ever offered gumbo, ask the person how they make their roux,” says bigmista. “If they don’t know what a roux is, run away.”
