POP’S CRAWFISH & SEAFOOD ~ A REVIEW

Brought To You By Ronny Green

When deciding whether to eat at a particular restaurant, reputation goes a long way. In Alexandria, few restaurants have made a bigger impact and hold a greater reputation than Robby G’s. After closing its doors then reopening under new management only to close again shortly thereafter, the building is back ope, however, you may notice a different name in big bold letters across the front. If you aren’t familiar, I’m talking about Pop’s Crawfish & Seafood.

At Pop’s, they are keeping it simple and serving up top quality fried and boiled seafood much like you were accustomed to at the original Robby G’s. And although the name has changed, the atmosphere is still as welcoming and inviting as before, right down to the table tops. To kick things off, I started with the mozzarella logs. Yes, you read that correctly. These aren’t those regular-degular mozzarella sticks. The breading is just right for dipping and the cheese pull stretches from the front door to the Jackson St. bridge. Follow that up with a basket of fried crawfish tails and some of Bryleigh’s dipping sauce … Pop’s has already got my taste buds dancing like they’re on TikTok.

The seafood feast continues with a golden brown, fresh out the grease, battered up and seasoned just right fried catfish and shrimp platter with the curly fries and hush puppies. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better than the fried catfish and shrimp platter, a boiled shrimp platter appears at the table accompanied by corn and potatoes and more SAUCE for added flavor and festive slam dunking.

By now, Dief and Harmonica Hoosier have filled the dining room with the good vibrations of live music and the ice-cold beers have reset my appetite. The temperature outside was a gumbo alert level so I could leave with a cup of good ol’ chicken and sausage gumbo. Shawn Parker, owner of Pop’s Crawfish & Seafood, takes pride in upholding the reputation of Robby G’s by exceeding customer expectations for all who eat at Pop’s. He and the staff take thier time preparing each menu item as if you were a guest in their home. With crawfish season approaching, Pop’s wants you to come on over and get your fix at 5859 Jackson St., Tuesday – Saturday.
