Description

Take Out, Cajun: For bayou-style seafood, look no further than Boiling Pot. The restaurant's Cajun Combo selection is a vast quantity of blue crab, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn dumped on the table for all to share. Other options include gumbo, oysters, and etouffee. For dessert, Key lime pie is ideal, but if you're feeling a little more adventurous, try chocolate-covered crawfish heads!

This festive Cajun eatery, the Boiling Pot offers a little bit of New Orleans on Sixth Street. Be prepared to get messy, as boiled shrimp, crab legs and unshelled crawfish are the staples here, and eating with your hands is the norm.
