Caught a craving for Mad Bugs?Cub’s crayfish reopen in response to high demand

Twist and pull. Suck your head. Peel, pinch and pull the meat from the bottom of the shell.
The only rule when dining at Cub’s Crawfish, where mudbugs are plentiful and beer is cold.
For the first two years the building opened, there was no air conditioning, and cold drinks were their salvation, recalls owner Clay Cubley.
The humble yet wildly popular seafood joint has tripled its business since settling into its 4145 Barrancas Avenue location in 2016 from its original Lillian Highway mom-and-pop shop. The original store is proudly pictured on the walls of the Warrington store.
The restaurant is now much larger, decked out in Cajun décor and picnic-checked tablecloths adorning the wooden tables, but retains the same freshness that customers demand.
Whether purchased fresh to take home or seasoned and served with potatoes and corn, Cubley has cultivated a crawfish cult that is loyal to its customers.
