Shrimp Truck on University?

Postby cubanat » Wed May 09, 2007 10:32 pm

What's the deal with this? I saw it the last 2 years. The other day they had a line of 30 people waiting. Anyone buy shrimp from this guy?

I started going there about a yearish ago and now always go.

I buy the Jumbo or XL shrimp.

They have to be shelled, and de-pooped, but they are off the charts.

I think the article said people freeze them to save for later, It's more of treat to get them fresh and eat them and wait for the next truck.

Plus if push comes to shove, I have a blow up fresh shrimp doll.

The lines are fine outside of lunch and rush hour.

Highly reccomended.

Fabian's shrimp are great....and so are the oysters (this was the last load til fall) and the crab meat and the Louisiana crawfish tails (not that chinese crap they sell elsewhere). He even has fresh whole redfish if that's your bag.
