This place is only open from January to May, (5 days a week; Weds thru Sun). They serve huge platters of boiled crawfish. It's an orgy of fish bodies, claws, and shells as people dig into this very regional dish that they look forward to...More

Crawfish were huge, most had claws big enough to eat too…atmosphere is fun and light, staff is young friendly people….it's just a wonderful place. Ignore negatives if any….it really doesn't get any better, and I've been here for years…consistently awesome!

We wait until Hawks is open for the season to eat crawfish. The first of the season are always at Hawks. The best tasting and cleanest in the world.

Hawk's is a shrine to boiled crawfish. And rightly so -- their crawfish are delicious. And the friendly roadhouse atmosphere is perfect, right in the middle of nowhere, out in the flooded crawfish fields. But I'm not sure you should go. First, the location is...More
