Looking for a Crawfish Boil on Sunday, 03/09

  • 9

Anyone know of a crawfish boil happening on Sunday, March 9th, within an hour of NOLA? Or perhaps a place in town that serves them regularly when in season?

  1. Big Al's and Franky and Johnny's are both sit down places. You can pick them up at Big fisherman and eat them somewhere else.

    1. Let's get the lingo straight: a "crawfish boil" refers to an event, usually private, where crawfish are cooked & eaten...you have to get invited to a crawfish boil. On the other hand, loads of restaurants & takeout joints will sell you boiled crawfish (the foodstuff). Try Perino's Boiling Pot, Sal's Seafood, K-Jean on Carrollton, Big Al's on Annunciation....

      1. Metairie Seafood has great boiled crawfish and Rouse's isn't bad either

          I've never had Rouse's but I noticed that the sign says they come out at 11:00 and 4:00, so go then for fresh.

        2. My friend Shaggy hosts crawfish boils in bars and backyards all over town. Give him a call and see if he can help- (504)484-4440/Shaggy's Boil, Inc. He just shut down his seafood shack so he may have the time and inclination to hook you up!

          1. I'll second (third?) the boiled crawfish at Big Fisherman on Magazine.Decent spice and size.

            1. Many bars will hold 'crawfish boils'
              For instance Carrolton Station has one on Friday March 7th
              http://www.carrolltonstation.com/cale...

              Sometimes Handsome Willys will have them.
              I know this isn't much help but try to google some bars around town.

                I can't believe I forgot about the Lenten Friday boils at Carrolton Station, especially since I used to boil the crawfish there.

                  Ye Ole College Inn use to pull a big crawfish boil truck up in front pre-K but I don't know if they still do. They were good.
