  • Boudin balls at Crawfish Shack are a masterpiece of fried and Cajun-esque comfort food, and a top pick for CLs 100 Dishes to eat before you die!
  • Enormous and practically greaseless shrimp po boys with a swipe of spicy sauce, nestled into crusty bread and hush puppies are an essential order. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Fresh boiled crawfish in HOT spices and lemongrass, pick-up service the best, friendly service. -Heather Hurlbert, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • While all of the food here is outstanding, the fried shrimp are an absolute stand-out, so order bunches!
  • Arrive early
  • Food is good, but don't go if you don't have the patience to wait. Each meal is made-to-order and can take a while.
  • Try the a little bit of everything!
  • The oysters on the half-shell are hard to beat (served with lemon, horseradish, and cocktail sauce). Get a dozen and split them with a friend as an appetizer!
  • All of the fish, sides, and crawfish are amazing and authentic like actual coast seafood. I definitely recommend the Mac n cheese poppers they are addictive
  • Meal #6: 1lb of crawfish plus 2 sides for under $10
  • Milton.Prejean( mastermilton) I will stop by the next visit we schedule in Atlanta, Ga.
  • Make it a point to BYOB. A cold beer with spicy crawfish is a must. Ask for extra spicy on your boil & use your thumb to get all the fat from the head--that's where the flavor is. Cajun girl approved.
  • Love this place, avoid going Friday and Saturday night per the employees!
  • You have to try the crawfish plain and simple, so order a few pounds and dig in!
  • FANTASTIC (and cheap) new seafood restaurant on Buford Hwy. Great food and service. Plus they deliver.
  • Fried shrimp is great!
  • Get here early for weekday lunch. Crawfish are the real deal and loaded with spice. Suck da heads at you own risk.
  • Excellent!
  • Don't bother to come after 7pm. It is likely without crawfish.
  • New phone number: 404-329-1610. Owner disconnected 404-929-6789 (same listed on website) due to intermittent connection issues. Website update unknown.
