Foursquare Tips

  • Just as good as the other ones except only ONE bathroom. Its ridiculous! Need more stalls so other people can wash hands
  • order the SHABANG and prepare to get messy!
  • Best for takeout b/c of the crowd. Order, take across the way and enjoy a drink and cheesy pop videos over a meal. Shrimp, crab legs, seasoned fries and corn are to die for. My new fav takeout in LA
  • Bring a group of 39. I dare you.
  • This place used to be the Ambassdor Hotel, where a scene from Barton Fink was filmed. Watch it now!
  • Get ready for an hour-long wait mayyn
  • Check to make sure your napkin dispensor if full before you get filthy
  • 1 or 2lb shrimp whole shabang mild & with cajun fries: also I know the workers there! suggested waiters joe, alex, eddy, yoon & andrew for now :D
  • omg! cajun fries in XXX is burning spicy HOT!!! not to mention those Shrimps + the whole sha-bang in XXX... wheeewww!!!
  • If you're Rollin with a lot of ppl, make sure u have everyone at the spot. halves or majority dnt fly here
  • 1lb shrimp all shabbang, gumbo with rice and sweet ice tea and you're all set!
  • Definitely keep in mind that you will have to wait at least 45 minutes and at most 3 hours. Plan ahead.
  • It's first come first serve.
  • Best combo: sweet potato fries and the leftover Shabang. After my bf consume the seafood, we douce our fries with the leftover sauce. Sooooo good.yum.
  • Just enough room to have sex in the bathroom. Just make sure to stretch.
  • King crab + shrimp + corn on a cob + whole shabang sauce = pursuing happiness.
  • The whole shabang seasoning is a medley combination of their choices of sauce. Highly recommend it for the first time. KING CRAB legs all the way, you won't regret it. Atmosphere is awesome!
  • Whoops! CORN+whole shabang sauce = must order. (crab is still better in redondo)
  • cajun fries sha-bang is finger lickin good! yum yum :D
