We Support Seafood Segregation

Seafood Segregation Shrimp Crawfish Crab Legs Garden Grove Orange County OC Fire Crab

Yes, we like certain seafood away from other seafood. It's our right to segregate our seafood however we see fit and you have the same right whenever you come to dine at the Fire Crab. If you want shrimp and crab legs in one combo, and then all the crawfish in its separate combo, you can. And you can even make each one a different flavor and/or a different level of spiciness. You can even separate your clams from any of those seafoods, too. The choice is really yours and no one will judge you all the same. We encourage seafood segregation during our Happy Hour all day on Mondays and Tuesdays where when you buy 2 pounds of seafood, you get the 3rd pound for free! Seafood choices include live crawfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, and/or crab legs. May not be combined with any other special or discount.

What Color Seafood Shrimp Crawfish Orange County Garden Grove OC Fire Crab

Cheddar Fries 7 Types Cajun Restaurant Orange County OC Fire Crab Garden Grove

Fish Sauce Wings Cajun Appetizer Honey BBQ Fire Crab Garden Grove Orange County OC

Everybody loves our wings and surprisingly, they really love our Fish Sauce Wings. It's surprising because it doesn't exactly have the best name but somehow, it is the most popular out of the four types of wings that we offer (we also have cajun, lemon pepper, and honey bbq). You have the choice of getting them in orders of 5 or 10 and it comes with a ranch (that you won't need) and some celery (that you do need).

Yes, We Have a Cajun Seafood Orgy Combo!

Seafood Orgy Combo Clams Shrimp Crawfish Orange County OC Fire Crab Garden Grove

So I was thinking about using another term rather than, "orgy," but "assembly" or "congregation" didn't quite have the zest I was looking for to title this seafood combo. Orgy hits the spot. This orgy consists of our staple seafood: crawfish, shrimp, and clams, all tossed in a garlic-filled cajun sauce. Hopefully, using this term won't detract our followers from what is important here: our seafood combo. If you want to get kinky with our combos, that's strictly up to you. But if you do, try to pick one of the booths in the back corner so we don't have to see it.

Better Have My Shrimp & Clams! Cajun Style, Of Course!

Shrimp Clams Cajun Seafood Fresh Creole Orange County OC Fire Crab Garden Grove

We know it's hard to get tired of crawfish but we want you to know that there are other options, like shrimp and clams. Shrimp has more meat than crawfish and clams are available all year round. It's a win-win combination if you like this pairing of seafoods. After you pick your seafood, you can then pick your sauce to appease your discerning taste buds. Our house sauce is our Fire Sauce. It's a combination of all the other available sauces and can be made to whatever spiciness level your tongue can handle. Is that a challenge? You bet your sweet ass it is.

We showcased our Fish & Chips before so now it's time for us to talk about our Shrimp & Chips. We butterfly cut our shrimps, lightly bread and batter them and then deep-fry them to perfection. We serve them up with some chips (fries) but you can always upgrade those to cajun fries or sweet potato fries for only another dollar. It's definitely something that can be shared because it's entirely a finger food. Anybody at your table with fingers can eat it. If they don't have fingers, then that means more for you. It's a great appetizer as you await your cajun seafood combo.
