It's Get Fat Tuesday!

Get Fat Tuesday Seafood Combo Clams Crawfish Shrimp Fire Crab Orange County OC

We're here on the west coast so we don't really celebrate Fat Tuesday the way New Orleans does. Probably because they have Mardi Gras. Well, in honor of the day, we'd like to invite you to come on in and get fat today, Tuesday! Lent starts tomorrow and we'd like you to not give up crawfish or any other seafood for lent. Give up anything else, like sex or porn. But don't give up crawfish or seafood. That would be ridiculous for you to give up. You wouldn't be able to give it up for 40 days. We know you weak ass mind.

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.
