This is the "go too place" for Oyster season. When its time to get fresh oysters this is "the place" to get them. They come fresh off the boat and you can even watch "the shuckers" on a big screen tv whilst waiting in the lobby. The oysters come in pints, quarts and gallon sizes to go. We always buy some to eat raw and fry. The lady there is very friendly and nice and great to talk to (even if she is from Austin (go Aggies! ). They also have good shrimp (raw) and some other fish. They carry some fish fry and some sauces but you can run up the street to Wal Mart and buy your crackers, Whataburger Spicey Ketchup, horse raddish, Louisiana Hot Sauce and lemons to "wash" those raw oysters down. Remember Texas has an "open oyster season" so you can only get these fresh ones from about October till March or April. At the beginning of the season you get the smaller sized oysters (easier to put on a cracker and get down) and at the mid end season the oysters get bigger and slide off the crackers (just add more Ketchup, raddish and hot sauce to wash em down!). I have to say oysters from our Gulf waters have a wonderful warm pleasing brine taste that i have never tasted in other places. I even had oysters once in DC and they tasted like goey snot (would taste i guess?). I couldnt put enough sauces and spice (which DC doesnt seem to have like here in Texas!) on them to get a decent taste. But maybe thats why people are so frustrated on the East Coast...no good food up there!
