It is what it says it is - a shack. The crawdads were fresh and delicious! Unfortunate that it doesn't serve beer to wash them down, but it was a fun, down-to-earth lunch stop.

The staff was ok. It's a little run down hole in the wall type place but only went in to pick up some great tasting cheap crawfish.

After talking to a few locals, it was obvious this was the place to eat if you wanted to experience some good ole craw-fish. The environment was friendly and the "mudbugs" were awesome!

Don't be put off by the building. The crawfish is amazing. If you want to try Louisiana crawfish, this place is it. Friendly staff and quick service. Easy to find and parking is available.

First time I have sat down to a meal of Crawfish, it better not be my last. Roll up your sleeves and put on a bib and dive in, you will savor the experience!

If you are stationed at Fort Polk, this is the place to go. Awesome crawfish, out of a shack. Just the type of southern style cuisine any American should love.

If you want to buy a few pounds of crawfish and ARE NOT looking for ambiance this is your place. Problem is their prices are the same as everyone else's.

I travel frequently in the Deep South for business and like to take in the local flavor. If you want crawfish this is the place. Don't bother with the previously frozen shrimp, eat the crawfish. I would recommend ordering extra potatoes and corn, you need to balance your crawfish gluttony. They don't offer condiments or beer.

Thank Pickyj
