Craving crawfish? You are in luck if you’re staying in San Marcos with us, because OMG Seafood is a brand new Lousiana Cajun restaurant serving up delicious mudbugs here. And there’s no better time to eat them!
Crawfish season is in full swing here in Texas. OMG Seafood sells boiled crawfish by the pound. Add-ons for your crawfish include bayou bags, with corn on the cob, potatoes, and either sausage, a 1/2 lb. of boiled shrimp, or a turkey neck.
Crawfish is one of the most eagerly anticipated seasons in Texas and Louisiana, and if you know, you know. These tasty morsels are some work to peel, but the reward is a spicy delight that will leave you wanting more. If you’re one of our Winter Texans waiting out the cold weather at Pecan Park Riverside RV Park, you need to try this tasty, authentic experience.
If you are a DIY type of crawfish person, OMG Seafood also sells bags of live crawfish. We recommend ordering ahead of time to ensure you get yours! OMG Seafood sources their crawfish directly from Louisiana, so you know it’s the real deal.
If you love crawfish, but your dining partners don’t, no worries! OMG Seafood has a selection of Gulf Coast seafood classics besides the seasonal crawfish. Their menu is small, with straightforward Gulf Coast standards, boiled or fried shrimp and fried fish. They also have seafood gumbo and seasonal blue crab. Everything looks delicious!
The bartender at nearby Zelick’s recommends the Bayou Fried Special with fish and shrimp. You can also try two sizes of the fried shrimp combo with fries and a roll, the seafood combo, boiled shrimp, or seafood gumbo.
If you’re looking for a party atmosphere, keep an eye on their Facebook page for crawfish boils at local bars. Happy Cow bar is hosting a series of crawfish boil parties, with music by Slim Bawb and the Fabulous StumpGrinders. They will likely partner with more local businesses for crawfish boil parties throughout the season.
OMG Seafood has already been packing people into their restaurant since they opened in late December. The word on this local hot spot is getting out. The inside is pretty small, but they also have an outdoor space with three picnic tables for dining.
Eating crawfish is ideally done outdoors, in the sunshine, with plenty of paper towels on hand. Crawfish are finger-licking good, but be sure to wash your hands well before you rub your eyes!
