For more than 20 years, this neighborhood spot has been shelling out cheap mollusks with even cheaper brewskis. Much of the food comes in fried renditions, including oysters. However, there are many preparations offered, some unusual for shuck shack – stringed lights, coolers and picnic tables included – such as a ceviche and a trio of fish tacos made with tilapia. Less eyebrow-cocking options include crab legs, po-boys, crawfish and cole slaw that's best inhaled on the patio. Whether you're drunk on the cocktail sauce or the carbonated sauce, make sure to keep count of the beer. Payment is on the honor system. And at the Aw Shucks prices, it would be shameful to breach that code. Also, with its location across from the Granada Theater, it makes an excellent choice for pre-show drinks.
