Boiling crawfish at a Texas Festival Boiling crawfish at a crawfish festival

In Texas, boiling and eating crawfish is a long standing family tradition. We eat crawfish at places besides the home, whether it be in restaurants, family reunions, football games, or at company gatherings.

There are a number of crawfish outlets, seafood markets, crawfish farms and caterers selling live and boiled crawfish in Texas, from Beaumont to Houston to Dallas, and in between.

In the spring of 2017, we purchased live crawfish from Wade's Place on East Main Street in Chandler. We've met Wade, and he runs a great seafood restaurant also, serving crawfish, shrimp, fish, gumbo, hand-cut rib-eye steaks, burgers, salads and much more. Phone 903.849.2729. They are located at the railroad tracks just a block south of Highway 31.

Included with the crawfish were boiled potatoes and corn on the cob. The service at Wade's is always friendly and efficient!

We've also been pleased with the live crawfish we've purchased by the sack from Rodney Murphy's Circle M Crawfish in Big Sandy, on Highway 155 just south of U.S. 80. Rodney has been selling crawfish for over 18 years. The facility is also known as "Rodney's", or "the Crawfish Stand". Rodney also operates a restaurant, and its menu includes crawfish, shrimp, alligator, boudin, along with choice steaks and other items. Live music is often featured Thursday-Saturday evenings with a family friendly atmosphere.
