Crawfish Price Check (and quality)

rudeboy | Mar 27, 200805:53 AM

Didn't want to hijack the other posts because I want this to be very specific. What are the various prices in town for crawfish, served in a restaurant? I will do a boil later in April, so I'm not interested in live prices right now. I just need crawfish in my belly within the next three days.

I'll post as I find out prices as well. I'm especially interested in happy hour prices, Sunday deals, or wherever one can get them cheap and decent. We eat alot and are on a budget. Razoo's is no more, and while I wouldn't normally set foot in there, the crawfish were good, $3/lb HH cheap, and they had $2 mugs of lone star. That's sort of what I'm looking for. Perhaps that's why they went out of business in the first place, and I'm just dreaming.

I'm only eating crawfish, so I'm not interested in the relative merit of any place with regard to cajun food, the politics of cajun food in general, or who's gumbo sucked the last time they went there. And yes, I will go to a chain when some of the local places (think Sambets) tries to get away with highway robbery! I really did have the absolute worst boiled crawfish of my life at that place, and they were charging $7 per pound. I've heard that they even charge a cover now just to get in because they have some band outside.

Of course, if the crawfish are flavorless, dead before they hit the water, or cooked way in advance, it isn't worth eating for free even.

Is the $3 happy hour at Pappadeax real, are they good? I''ll call today once they open.

Any word on Sam's boat, recent Sambet's, Pac Star, Alligator, Longhorn, or others?
