This place is a trip! Whenever guests visit from out of town, I try to bring them here. The food is excellent, but very limited: fried shrimp, catfish or frog legs, boiled shrimp, raw oysters, gumbo, hushpuppies or fries. That's it. But man, the flavor is perfect - lightly breaded, lightly fried, very fresh oil, excellent flavor. The freshest oysters in town. I've never seen such ethnic diversity (black, Asian, Hispanic, white, etc.) in such close quarters, and everyone's happy - eating, talking, drinking beer and Micheladas. Watch out for the Michelada - it's a disgusting, irresistable drink made by cracking a raw oyster into a beer mug, squeezing two lime halves into, adding a tablespoon or two of Louisiana hot sauce, then filling to the top with your favorite brand of beer. First time I could barely finish it, but the flavor stuck with me and I went back and tried it again. Still not sure if I like it, but I get it every time. I've watched some big Mexican guys drink one with every dozen or so oysters, and go through five or six of each. And don't expect a table - there are about 20 seats around a center pit where the oysters are shucked and the food served, then about 25 around the edges looking out on the parking lot and FM 1960. And the whole thing's at about a 15 degree angle, so you're always sitting sideways to avoid sliding off your chair. Checkout is the honor system - you tell the cashier what you had, they add up your bill. Fascinating, fun, and incredibly great, simple seafood make for a unique experience and a wonderful meal. Relax and go with the flow, you'll be smiling through the meal and after you're done.
Pros: Fresh seafood, great preparation, crazy/fun atmosphere
Cons: Stand against the wall to wait for a table, tough to find more then 2-3 seats together
