RUSTIC INN first-timer

Hi guys I'm looking for insight / advice regarding the garlic crabs at Rustic Inn . . . technically it's not my FIRST time at Rustic Inn (it's my second) but I've never had the garlic crabs there. My questions . . .

The smallest carry-out order is 3 or 4 lbs -- am I likely to eat that much by myself in one sitting? Are these good to put in the fridge for a day or two and eat throughout the weekend?

Do I need mallets and tools to crack and eat these crabs or can I just break them up with a strong fork? Are these serious shells like king crab legs have, requiring the real tools?

I'm eager to try them but I want to know what I'm in for, as this is a $50-60 learning experience, just for a takeout order . . . THANKS!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
