Aw Shucks

One of our favorite restaurants for over 25 years is, without a doubt, Aw Shucks on Greenville Avenue.  The food and staff are all top-notch!  Most of their friendly and attentive staff have served at Aw Shucks for many years and are a big part of what makes our experience there such a good one.  David and I have made it a Friday tradition now, so we eat there most every week as long as crawfish are in season (typically from January to July).  Their crawfish or "mud bugs" as they're very lovingly referred to, are boiled to perfection, served piping hot, with red potatoes and corn...all boldly spiced with their house seasoning, with the end result being succulent, juicy bits of goodness, heads and all....just the way David and I like them.  The two of us have no problem devouring a good 6 lbs, at least, in a sitting.  =)  Another favorite is their fried catfish, some of the best I've ever tasted.  Their house specialty dish is shrimp cocktail and is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.  Another reason we like Aw Shucks so much is it has a totally casual vibe that David and I enjoy not only for lunch, but often times before we head across the street to the Granada to go hear some live music.  I highly recommend Aw Shucks for some of the finest seafood in town.
