CROSBY, Texas — It's crawfish season in Crosby!
The famed Crawfish Shack in the 5800 block of FM 2100 will open for drive-thru customers only from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.
In past years, lines outside the mega-popular restaurant have stretched for blocks as crawfish fans wait for their bugs.
“We get a lot of regular customers, but we have a lot of people that travel a good distance,” owner Dan Meaux said in January 2019.
While typical folklore puts crawfish season in early springtime through early summer, Meaux said he only brings out the best of the best this early in the year.
He said as much as 40 percent of the crawfish Meaux buys doesn’t even make the cut into orders.
“We take the loss, but we want to put out a good quality product,” said Meaux.
Crawfish Shack's hot boiled crawfish sells for $7.95 per pound.
