Boil House in The Heights is a crawfish machine. The tiny roadside shack churns out pound after pound of crawfish all season long, but only from Wednesday to Sunday (or until the place sells out). Get your mudbugs boiled up mild, medium, or hot, with a simple trio of add-ons: corn, potatoes, and an absolutely huge link of pork sausage. Order to stay, and crawfish shows up at your table by the bucketful, or you can brave the drive-through and get everything to-go. We prefer having our crawfish outside on the patio, the way nature intended, with a strawberry daiquiri (shot included). And don’t pass up the butter-boiled shrimp and house dipping sauce, if only to give your hands a break from shucking all those tails.
