We’re inching closer and closer to when crawfish season will officially be back in style. Let us go ahead and help you figure what the best spots for crawfish are in Houston.
BB’s Cajun Cafe
Is BB’s the undisputed king of crawfish in Houston? Possibly. Beyoncé swear by it and with the multitude of locations in Montrose, The Heights, Upper Kirby, Katy, Pearland and Briar Grove, other people swear by it too. The café serves buckets of Cajun-style crawfish in addition to 15 different po’boy varieties and salads.
88 Boiling Crawfish and Seafood
Located on the West Side off Wilcrest, 88 Boiling Crawfish and Seafood has a specialty, their “88 Special” — a seasoning mix of lemon pepper and Cajun spices and all drenched in garlic butter. Be sure to check out their fried rice, their fried calamari and snow crab legs.
LA Crawfish is a Houston staple with Vietnamese-style crawfish and a tasty crawfish pho. They’ve been praised mainly due to their cayenne and sweet garlic butter seasonings. Other inspired dishes for you to dig in on? The crawfish empanadas and cheesy crawfish rolls.
Oh, you couldn’t have a Houston crawfish list without Sam’s Boat. They’ve even got a reader’s choice award from VisitHouston.com to prove it.
Crawfish and Noodles
The Netflix documentary Ugly Delicious highlighted the Chinatown spot and head chef Trong Nguyen serves up some of the spiciest crawfish in the H. Also, it’s super popular so you may want to call in a reservation.
