We encourage you to do as you like when you come to the Fire Crab. And if that's pigging out and enjoying every bit of sauce drenched in our seafood, then so be it! Yes, some of those nooks an cranny that the sauce will seep into are in the claws, legs, and tails and there isn't anything wrong with sucking the sauce out of those parts. Sure, it sounds a bit off putting, but it really is worth it if you just dig on it and suck the crap out of your choice of seafood, which includes crawfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, king crab legs, and snow crab legs.

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.

Besides, once we drench it in one of our awesome cajun sauces, it's all going to be the same color anyway. So come on and stay out of the rain.
