Lobster! Face Down, Tails Up!

Lobster Cajun Garden Grove Orange County OC Fire Crab Face Down Tails Up

Things are getting kinda dirty dirty lately. Sing along to our groove as you order our lobster special: Face down, tails up, that's the way we like to grub! Pretty funny take on the rap song my Meek Mill. If you're too old to know that song, it's okay. It's still pretty funny. But yes, we do have lobsters in stock and on hand, in case you want a large, super delicious version of a crawfish. It requires less work and you get way more meat. It's a great meal, especially with our signature Fire Sauce. Put your face down and go at it!
