Fantastic Thursday: Shrimptastic po-boys ($15.00). Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys or fried green tomato and shrimp po-boys with house-made remoulade sauce ($15). Take a half-size po-boy, hollow the bread to make a bread cave, stuff it with our own New Orleans style barbecued shrimp (prepped in loads of butter, white wine, and saucy spices), cover it with barbecue sauce, and grab the napkins. Or grab our fried green tomatoes, add some shrimp sautéed in our barbecue sauce, our house salad with house-made dressing, some remoulade sauce, and you’ve got a little more than a po-boy, you’ve got a “Whoa-boy.” We said goodbye to a music legend a few days ago, Charles Edward Anderson Berry. Few know he played in nightclubs before he defined rock and roll, sometimes playing Western swing songs to thrill the audiences. In fact, that’s where his first big hit “Maybellene” started. Chuck would play a Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys’ song, “Ida Red” so folks could do a little square dancing. Later in the Chicago studio, he reworked the song to what we know as “Maybellene.” Yep. Of course, Berry was a huge shrimp fan. Every once in a while, if he were hungry, he break into his old standby, though with some new lyrics: “Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, way back up in the swamp among the evergreens, there stood a log cabin made of earth and wood, where lived a water boy named Johnny B. Shrimp, who never ever learned to read or write so well, but he could play a guitar just like a ringing a bell. Go, go, go, Shrimpie, go, go, go, Shrimpie, go, go….” It totally works, and it usually got him his favorite dish: fried shrimp po-boys. The stuff about “Maybellene” is totally true; the rest, well, that’s just swamp legend. Come join us for a great day of po-boys, we’d love to see you — Chuck will be here ringing his bell.
