Foursquare Tips

  • when asked what sauce.. go for "the whole sha-bang"!
  • The Whole Sha-bang Shrimp is #6 on our Top 100 Dishes! The sauce is an ingenious and patentable concoction made from butter, lemon juice, Zatarain's (I think) and lots of garlic. Finger lickin good!
  • be ready for a lonnnnng wait.
  • Get the shebang! It's worth the wait.
  • I've never seen so many adults wearing bibs in one place. But it's needed unless you want to smell like crab all day.
  • Try the corn! It's drenched in sauce! Yum!
  • Come early during the week its not a long wait.
  • Always packed.
  • Get Cajun fries XXX
  • show up half hour before closing time, mad easy to get a table!
  • One of the tastiest fried shrimp around. Not greasy. Hefty-sized shrimp. Not a lot of batter. Just perfect.
  • The whole shabang spicy is good with anything! King crab and lobster always good prices.
  • Wear all black or the whole sha-bang will leave stains!
  • Shrimp and crab legs with whole shabang spice!
  • Warning: it's 2013 & they don't take American Express cards!!! #fail
  • Get shrimp w/corn, whole sha-bang medium. Peel, dip in own juices then lime juice/salt/pepper mixture, consume. Rice is a MUST to sop up all.dat.SAUCE. Brookhurst = best location, but super long wait.
  • Get. EVERYTHING.. o_o
  • ATTN: LADIES! While you wait, check out Skylark Nail & Beauty Supply. OPI Nail Polish for $4, and pleeeenty of other nail polishes for $1! :D
  • Gotta have the gumbo w rice and add the juices from the whole shabang!
