For more than 20 years, this neighborhood spot has been shelling out cheap mollusks ($10 for a dozen oysters on the half-shell) with even cheaper brewskis ($1.50 happy hour drafts). Much of the food comes in fried renditions, including oysters. However, there are many preparations offered, some unusual for shuck shack -- stringed lights, coolers and picnic tables included -- such as a ceviche and a trio of fish tacos made with tilapia.

But by keeping it simple, Aw Shucks manages to get the fried food right. Shrimp,... More »
This is the sort of place where you roll up your sleeves, put your elbows on the table and get down and dirty with your crawfish or crab legs. There are no tablecloths here, or napkins for that matter. Instead, grab a roll of paper towels and get to work. Try the shrimp, boiled or fried. Dip 'em in butter, drench 'em in lemon juice or order 'em spicy. You can't go wrong. But if they're in season, order the crawfish. And when they're not, splurge on the summer platter for two. It's more crab... More »
