I use this place to get live crawfish. I live in Katy and pick up the morning of at the Cinemark movie theater at I-10 and 99.

I have used them for years and have stopped shopping or looking around. I just order from them and am done.

They have a couple of other pick up locations around town as well. They pickup in front of the best buy at 1960 & 59 in humble and somewhere in the Woodlands. You can call them to find out what place is the closest to you.

I use to buy from Cajun Gourmet, but they started stuffing their sacks with claws to weight them down more a few years ago. I would have piles of crawfish claws in my cooler. Never again.

Interesting. I'm getting 2 sacks from them tomorrow. I'll follow up on my findings.

Good deal. Curious to know if you will have a bunch of claws. Thanks!

I didn't see any abnormal amount of claws that you are referencing. I'm planning to buy more.

I've used them before and have always been happy with their service and crawfish.

Bought 70lbs yesterday. Nice size. Didn't notice a lot of claws. Very happy and will certainly buy again.

I used Cajun Gourmet last year and was EXTREMELY pleased. They just bumped their prices for this weekend to $3.75 a pound from 3.25 last week. Anyone know what HEB price is at?

Science Denier - I just bought the crawfish from Cajun Gourmet this last weekend and it was good. Most of the crawfish were large. I was pleasantly surprised.

Looking at their site now and it's dropped down to $3.25/lb. On the crawfish app, it shows Kroger's at $2.99/lb, but not sure how big they are.






Does Cajun Gourmet also drop off at Cinamark at I-10 and 99 in Katy? I think L&L also drops off there? Not ordered mine yet. Called L&L but are closed today.

Hmmmm

Cajun Gourmet delivers to the Cinemark at I-10/99. The truck gets there at 7:30am. If you are looking at the theatre, they park over on the right side. There is a "loading area" between the first and second parking lot that they park at.

I just looked at their website and price did go back up to $3.75/lb. I might go get some again at Easter.

Thanks!! Yea, I got L&L mixed up with Cajun Gourmet.

I'm gonna order 2 sacks for pick up on Saturday. This will be my first non-HEB order. We will see how they turn out!!

My assessment...

Got 2 bags (71 lbs) from CajunGourmet. Good sized, slightly bigger than what I usually get from HEB.

I like their setup. Goes rather quickly. They didn't sell too many, though. Looks like they dump to their main customer and then have the bags selling to us last. Was worried that being at the bottom, there would be some dead ones, but that didn't happen.

$3.75/lb is what I paid. Pricey, but it is Easter. Took longer to clean than HEB.

Overall, slightly above HEB. I will probably shop price a d get the ones that are cheaper in the future. If they are priced the same, OL going with CajunGourmet.

I havent had much Cajun style crawfish as I usually eat Asian style but I got some at Cajun Cafe in Alvin and they were some of the best I've had. Maybe it's just been too long. $8.50 a lb

At $8.50/lb they better be good.

Went to Cajun Greek in Galveston three weekends ago and they were $12.95 per lb or 3 lbs for $35. I was already there, so bought 3 lbs, but I was shocked. I expected $10 because they are always high, but usually some of the largest in size, but not $13!

That's why I haven't had Cajun style in so long.

Right now, that's around what it's going for everywhere. The Creek bars have $5/lb on Tuesdays though.

Just got my one bag this morning from them, had a few small light colored ones but that's it. Majority of them were big and all alive, very pleased!

Just about every place down here has it for 5.99 or 6.99. Kickin Kajun in bacliff is our favorite & runs awesome specials. Sam's Boat is still 9.99 though.

There was a good size crowd at Cajun gourmet yesterday. Crawfish were great. I tried their seasoning blend and it was pretty good. I would buy it again.

Preslee's has been doing a $5 per lb deal lately. I didn't eat them, but they smelled good.

Doing 3 sacks today. Went to HEB at Fry and Grand Parkway. $2.77/lb. they are big for field run. Very big. Most are the size of my hand.

I've decided that HEB is better than Cajun Gourmet.
