Crawfish in Tyler, Texas

Some folks call 'em crayfish, crawdads, or mudbugs, but here in Texas they are simply CRAWFISH, whether they are swamp crawfish, spillway crawfish, or pond crawfish.
We've been catching crawfish all our life, and love the tradition of a long, leisurely crawfish boil in spring!
Crawfish are healthy food. They are an excellent source of high-quality protein, low in calories, fat and saturated fat, and a good source of vitamins.
We're looking forward to another great crawfish season in Texas in 2021!

The last five years we have purchased our live, and boiled, crawfish from Wade's Place on East Main Street in Chandler. We've met Wade, and he runs a great seafood restaurant serving crawfish, etouffee, gumbo, catfish, shrimp, oysters, snow crab legs, hand-cut rib-eye steaks, burgers, salads and much more. Included with the boiled crawfish at Wade's are potatoes and corn on the cob.
Wade's is located at the railroad tracks just a block south of Highway 31. We dine at Wade's regularly, and it is highly recommended for great food, friendly service and a comfortable atmosphere. They also do takeout.
