Crawfish in San Antonio??

New to Chowhound - this is my first post!

I'm from Houston and look forward to this time of year when we can sit on a patio and drink a few cold ones and enjoy spicy crawfish. I'm surprised it's not as popular here in San Antonio where I now live as I'm having difficulty finding any local and cheap places serving crawfish up by the pound. I've made a few calls to Willie's Ice House (had some there last week - good, spicy, not as juicy as I like, and $6.99/lb = expensive), Pappadeaux, Joe's Crab Shack. See the trend here? All large corporate restaurants. While that's okay for me, I prefer a local pub or bar serving it up ON THE CHEAP (like $3-4/lb). Any recommendations?! Thanks

    1. I saw a sign at HEB yesterday that they are taking orders for live crawfish, get some and cook them yourself.
