This place is usually crowded, and for good reason: You can't beat the prices or the selection. The decor and the presentation trawl the line of bare bones, but what the store is lacks in atmosphere it more than makes up for with its products: live crabs, catfish meat or turtle meat (you'll never look at your pet turtle the same way again). Fresh or frozen, whatever you need is here.
Servers sport the typical butcher garb (hairnet, white jacket) and bark out numbers as they try to keep the crowd under control. When your number is up, you get to select the fish you want and have it cut (filleted, grilled, you name it) just the way you like. It's hard not to get carried away here and order more than you originally planned (after all, you can always freeze it) because there's so much to choose from. The spree won't kill your budget either: Weekly specials and low, low prices ensure you can eat like a prince on your paltry, pauper's salary.
