Crawfish Cravings?


The crawfish boil may be a cultural import from Louisiana, but us Texans take our crawfish boils very seriously. In fact, behind the barbecue cook-off, the crawfish boil would rank right near the top with chili cook-offs in terms of coveted bragging rights.

With mudbug season in full swing, here are a few festivals and restaurants in the Bay Area to help you fulfill your crustacean cravings.

Bay Area Houston Crawfish Festivals
