Randy’s Crawfish & Cajun Grub

Randy's Crawfish and Cajun GrubI’ve been having really good luck with my restaurant choices lately, and Randy’s Crawfish is no exception.  I’ve always been of the mindset that the whole process of eating crawfish is too much work for too little payout.  However, I am a sucker for locally owned businesses, and I’ve been hearing so many great things about this place lately.  So obviously when I was invited to meet a group of friends there one evening last week, I immediately agreed.

There’s nothing about Randy’s that can be mistaken for fancy (except for their brand new website), and that’s just fine with me. There is a time and a place for fancy, and that place and time is not on an aluminum picnic table off Hwy. 155 on a nice spring Thursday evening.  The atmosphere at this particular crawfish restaurant may be low key, but the food is nothing to be taken lightly.  I had the boiled shrimp and fried pickles (my #1 weakness) and both were beyond fantastic.  Seriously, we’re talking food greatness here.  I did try the crawfish and do admit it was tasty, just so long as someone else is doing all the shelling and shucking and sucking or whatever kind of work is involved there.

I strongly suggest that anyone who finds themselves in that area definitely stop in for a visit to Randy’s.  Even if you’re not in the area I’d go so far as to suggest that it’s worth the trip to Lake Palestine.  Oh, and Randy’s is BYOB so go to the beer store, gather up your friends, then stop in for a relaxing afternoon at Randy’s Crawfish with a cold drink, a few pounds of shrimp (ok, ok or crawfish), and some really cool folks.

Randy's Crawfish on Urbanspoon


  1. Not what it used to be, the crawdads are quite tiny now. =(

  2. I was craving crawfish and wanted to try this place. The crawfish were extremely dirty. I do not believe they wash or purge the crawfish prior to cooking them. I had sticks and leaves in my crawfish. So nasty.

  3. Metro Matt says:

    I got extremely sick eating here once, which is all I want. Not going back.

  4. We are very sorry to read about your bad experience you had at our restaurant! I assure you that we DO wash and purge our crawfish! We have huge tanks in the back for the purpose of cleaning the crawfish out! Several changes have been made in the new season of 2011! The main change being that Randy himself is the only one cooking the crawfish from now on, to ensure that it is being cleaned and cooked to perfection! We realize that noone is going to do it as good as “Randy”, so he is back…FULL TIME! Randy has been cooking crawfish for 12 years now and we are looking forward to an amazing 2011 crawfish season! If you give us another try, we assure you…you wont be dissapointed! And PLEASE, if you ever have any suggestions or comments, ask to speak with Randy! We would love to hear your feedback. Thank you and God Bless.

  5. BEST CRAWFISH AROUND,Randy’s is da bomb!!! Fried Pickles are one of my favorite appetizers! B.Y.O.B & Live music….always a blast!!!!!! =)They have both Inside or Outside Seating & AC and Heat…unlike some of the other places around!

  6. Love Randy’s Crawfish…It seems they have a little something for everyone. Of course I don’t do crawfish like my husband and friends do but the fish, fried mushrooms and pickles are crazy good! It’s refreshing to find a place with good food & great music to be with friends. B.Y.O.B. great bonus! We get treated like part of the family when there. Thanks for the wonderful experiences we always get with you.

  7. I always look forward to crawlfish season now I have never been a fan til I went to Randys and if I could eat there everyday I would!! The ppl there are also so friendly and make sure u are taken care of.

  8. Randy’s Crawfish is sooo worth the drive out 155. The food is fabulous – crawfish, boiled shrimp and fried pickles are divine! I love that my family can sit inside when it’s cold and outside when the weather is nice. Even my picky 4-year-old loves it!! So happy it’s finally crawfish season!

  9. LOVE LOVE me some Cajun crawfish. Randy’s is the best around. I take my hot wife and get some beer and have a blast. The live music is slammin and you can’t beat the crawfish!

    Should you decide to go the route of a do it yourself mentality you need to make sure you
    are confident in your skills as you could do a tremendous amount of damage to your home or
    building. Carefully Go scrutinize the estimates any roofing contractors submit.
