One of the best things about Vegas is its culinary diversity. You can find restaurants inspired by countries from around the world. Now you may be wondering if that includes seafood since Las Vegas is nowhere near the coast. Well, we are happy to report that you can get fresh, delicious seafood in Las Vegas, too, despite its landlocked location. One of the tourist and local favorites when it comes to seafood is Hot N Juicy Crawfish.
Hot N Juicy Crawfish was started in 2007 by Tim and Laina after their visits to Las Vegas were missing the crawfish they couldn’t live without. Since then, they have expanded and now have a total of four Hot N Juicy locations in the Vegas area.
At Hot N Juicy Crawfish, you can expect fresh seafood seasoned to your preferred spiciness level. Personally, Tim and Laina like it hot and juicy, hence the name, but you can have it however you like.
Hot N Juicy Crawfish has become a local and tourist favorite since its opening, so let’s take a look at everything you need to know before you go.
Hot N Juicy Crawfish Menu
Though the restaurant may be called Hot N Juicy Crawfish, there are plenty of other types of seafood on the menu and even a few things for land lovers.
Lovingly called “For Play” on the menu are the appetizers where there is something for everyone.
One of the fan favorites is the cajun fries, but they also have chicken wings, raw oysters, fried catfish, and crispy pork skin. The options don’t stop there with cajun or regular calamari, etouffee, fried shrimp, and more.
By The Pound
If you are looking to eat some temptations by the pound, Hot N Juicy Crawfish offers ten seafood varieties by the pound, including crawfish, clams, green and black mussels, shrimp, various types of crab, and lobster.
When ordering by the pound, you’ll choose from five seasonings and five spice levels. The seasonings include Louisiana, Juicy Cajun, Garlic Butter, Lemon Pepper, and Hot N Juicy.
The spice level scale goes from Baby Spice all the way up to Extra Spicy, allowing you to completely customize your by-the-pound selections.
The fried baskets are served with cajun french fries or the sweet potato fries can be substituted for an additional charge. Protein options for the fried baskets include fried catfish, shrimp, or soft shell crab. You can also get a Hot N Tender basket which is their take on chicken strips, or a five-piece wings basket if you are looking to skip out on the seafood selections.
Combos and Po Boys
The combos are portions of seafood and meats with your choice of seasoning and spice level served with corn and potatoes. The “Get Your Feet Wet” combo has crawfish, shrimps, and andouille sausage. “The Drool” has everything from the “Get Your Feet Wet” plus snow crab and a choice of regular or cajun calamari. These combos are perfect for those who want to try a little bit of everything.
The Two-Handed Po Boys are big sandwiches with your choice of fried crawfish, soft shell crab, catfish, chicken tenders, or shrimp. They are served up with a signature sauce, lettuce, and tomatoes on a soft sub roll.
If you are looking for a sweet treat to end your meal, you have to try the fried brownies. Decadent brownies are battered and fried, then dusted with powdered sugar. They made the perfect sweet ending to your spicy, full-flavored meal at Hot N Juicy Crawfish.
