My son and I stopped here for lunch while shopping and had another nice meal. This is a no frills food court spot with good food at reasonable prices. And the staff is friendly and attentive. I had the Oyster and Shrimp PO Boy and the rendition here was very good. Plenty of Fried Shrimp and Oysters, with Cole Slaw... More

I will have to say it isn't my favorite, but I cannot complain. It is great crawfish and has always been great service

I was looking for more of a traditional Cajun food joint, so this kind of took me by surprise. The crawfish were good, not great. The price was really good though! I also got 12 half shell oysters, but I really regret doing that. They were very small. I had to ask for some cocktail sauce. They brought out packets... More

The Good: The food is really good! B.Y.O.B. The Bad: The restaurant is located inside an Asian Market with miscellaneous restaurants and "general" seating...so seating isn't traditional. It's basically, get in where you can fit in. Everything is extra. Unless it's written out, expect to pay extra for it. The "restaurant" and it's area is very small, so expect to... More

I ordered an oyster po boy and the guy couldn't or didn't really even want to tell me how much it was before I ordered. Meanwhile as I'm waiting, after awhile, I go up to check to see why my order was taking so long. I said that it shouldn't take so long to make a sandwich and he disagreed... More

I've had much better crawfish from multiple other places. The crawfish in my opinion was overcooked. The line was about 35-45 minutes long just to order food at 7:30 pm on a rainy evening. The wings were pretty tasty but would have preferred them clipped and not whole. The cost for 5 people for 12 pounds of crawfish, 24 wings,... More

My family and I live this restaurant. Friendly service and the best crawfish/andouille sausage pho around. On this visit, we ordered the pho noodle soup, a loaded fried oyster po boy sandwich, and the chicken bites--my son's favorite.

Parking and finding a spot to sit is a pain on the wknd but it was still worth the trouble! My husband said the crawfish was definitely some good stuff! The beignets are addicting as the are melt in ur mouth good! They have new locations I need to try :-). I have been here for both lunch and dinner.

You know you are in the right place because you see the locals just filling up the place. We had both the snow crab and the crawfish for a total of 5 lbs. At US$5.99, I thought this was a bargain. We spent almost 2 hours enjoying the cajun dish splashed down with Houston's local beer. If you want authentic... More

I really like this place, do not let the title of this article dissuade you from eating there! I LOVE crawfish, but I do have a couple of small comments about the LA Crawfish on Richmond. First, the seasoning does not soak into the crawfish, it merely sits on top of their shells. This means that the meat is not... More
