The Juicy Crab Has Made It’s Way to Houston

Do you love eating tender, juicy crab in Houston, TX? Then, you’ll delight in the fact that there’s a new Atlanta-based, seafood spot in town. The Juicy Crab, yes… that’s the actual name of the restaurant.

I was delighted that The Juicy Crab wanted to partner with little ole me on something. They invited me and a few of my friends out to their grand opening day.

We got to experience all of the menu options and had direct access to the owner. You guys know that I like to ask a ton of questions about the menu before I even consider ordering anything.

The restaurant is a self proclaimed Cajun-inspired seafood chain. And, they’re serving all kinds of delectable seafood dishes.

Where is The Juicy Crab Located?

The Juicy Crab is located conveniently right off of Highway 249 and FM 1960, right by Willowbrook Mall. If you’re an old timer, then you probably remember when this spot used to be Baker Street. I spent many a night there in my more youthful days.

What is The Inside Like?

We were delighted by the transformation the location underwent. The inside of the building was barely recognizable.

Owners installed a comfortable little bar area. It has the perfectly blue lighting to set the mood for a good time. This area is cozy, but I’d say that there’s ample seating.

Likewise, there is plenty of seating for those dining at tables, with families. The main foyer is very accessible. I don’t have children, but I know how big of a hassle it can be to highchair children at a busy, cramped restaurant. They offer a variety of both booths and low top tables to accommodate everyone.

Be warned, this is a get down and get dirty type of seafood joint. The food is served without utensils… So, come prepared to dig in–literally. At first, it felt weird to be eating with my hands. Incidentally, I got used to it really quickly.

It helps that they serve the meal with a plastic bib and plenty of wet naps!

Do They Have Drinks?

Hennessy Cocktail

When you visit, be sure to try all of the Hennessy cocktails on their menu. Some of the other influencers spoke very highly of the Henny Margarita. Who would have thought that Hennessy would go so well with The Juicy Crab menu.

I can personally attest to the greatness of the Henny the Beach. We all know what that’s a spin-off of…  It was delicious! I only had one, but I definitely felt it creeping up on me towards the end of my meal.

What’s on The Menu?

Okay, let’s get to that—THE FOOD! That is the important part, right?

The Juicy Crab has something for everyone. Yes, for those of you weirdos that don’t eat seafood, no need to fret. Options for you include chicken wings, chicken tenders, and their extensive list of yummy sides.

As far as appetizers go, everything was very tasty! I really loved the popcorn shrimp, the Cajun fries, and the calamari.

Other add-ons include: rice, boiled eggs, corn on the cob, sausage and potatoes. Ask for garlic or their specialty Boom Boom sauce if you like an extra savory kick to your food.

For your wings, guests can choose from regular breading, BBQ, Cajun, Garlic, Lemon Pepper, or Juicy Special Wings.

The Juicy Special sauce includes a slew of secret ingredients. It can be served at whichever heat intensity you can handle: mild, medium, hot. Ultimately, I recommend going with hot if you really want to feel a little bit of heat.

Seafood fiends, you will be in Heaven while eating at The Juicy Crab Houston. Their menu boasts a variety of both raw and fried seafood delights to include:

  • Blue Crab, King Crab & Snow Crab Legs
  • Shrimp (Headless & Head On, Boiled & Fried)
  • Crawfish
  • Clams
  • Mussels
  • Lobster
  • Oysters
  • Fish (Catfish, Tilapia)

What item off of the menu do you plan on trying first?


Lastly, I recommend that you not skip the dessert menu. I was so full from my appetizer and entree that I almost did just that. I ended up getting my dessert in a to go box.

I’m so glad that I did. Later that night, I pretty much attacked my NY Style cheesecake! It was thick, rich and fresh–as a good cheesecake should be.

Other dessert options include: chocolate cake, carrot cake, and red velvet cake. I really can’t wait to visit again so that I can try them all out.

The myriad of flavors I experienced during dining experience truly touched my soul. This location is very close to my job, so it’s been excruciatingly tempting not to venture back in for more.

What’s In My Gym Bag?

Whenever I start talking about my new found love for the gym, the conversation always leads to people asking what’s in my gym bag! If you’re curious about it too, then keep on reading!

Gym Bag

Every gym enthusiast needs a place to keep all of their go to gym essentials. If you don’t already have a gym bag, then you can find an inexpensive one on Amazon.com or at Ross Dress For Less.

They have a plethora of cute options with a wide range of colors. You can opt for duffel style, or for the cute 90’s backpack type of gym bag. Go with whatever complements your fitness style!

gym bag essentials

As you can see, my gym back is by FILA. It has two of my favorite colors in it: black and neon green. I love the bag because it’s very sturdy and stands up to all of my abuse. In my morning rush, so much ends up getting thrown into my gym bag: breakfast, clothes, my makeup bag.

My gym bag is full of pockets and meshing. This is great because it allows for adequate air flow throughout the bag. It even has a separate pocket for me to store a pair of shoes. So, it’s no problem for me to go from my work heels to my gym shoes.


Headphones

I’m so dependent on my headphones that I will go all the way back home if I end up at the gym without them. Silly, right?

lg headphones

For whatever reason, I can not go to the gym without a pair of headphones. I have a pair of Bluetooth LG headphones that I absolutely swear by. They are virtually weightless while I’m working out.

Headphones are a great distraction, especially when you’re not particularly motivated to work out. As soon as I turn on my headphones, it takes my mind to an entirely different place. It’s almost like I’m in a trance.


Fitness Swimsuit

If I plan on swimming that day, I make sure to bring a fitness swimsuit with me. A one piece swimsuit–because uhh, she got a donk! Speedo has the most comfortable swimwear in my opinion. We definitely don’t need all of that being exposed to virgin eyes in the gym.

I have so many swimsuits, it’s ridiculous. So, it’s nothing to leave a spare suit in my gym bag for whenever I need to grab and go. I also make sure to pack my FILA slides for walking to and from the pool area.


Towel

Having a towel while you’re at the gym is vital for several reasons. Mostly because sweat an germs… Additionally, it serves as a show of courtesy to your fellow gym members.

In my fitness group, I hear so many people ranting about others not bringing a towel with them to the gym. It’s a serious thing guys!

It’s best to use a towel with discernible sides. One side for the part that will touch dirty gym equipment, while the other will only touch surfaces of your skin.

Nobody wants to get on a piece of gym equipment that’s still full of fresh dew from the last person’s sweat. Take advantage of your gym’s towel service if they offer it.

Plus, it’s always nice to have a towel if you’re using the sauna!


Deodorant

Okay, this item doesn’t require a big description. Deodorant is deodorant… Bring some! I personally use Arm & Hammer deodorant. The brand claims to use all natural deodorizer ingredients, so the green in me loves that.

Resistance Bands

I recently ordered some resistance bands from Amazon. These are typically used to increase intensity in a workout. They are great for toning my legs.

You can find resistance bands online for cheap. Also, you can take them virtually anywhere. I take mine with me to work and use them at my desk during the day.


Ankle Straps

Ankle straps have helped with toning my glutes so well! I get so many compliments on my legs and butt. I purchased my straps online at Amazon. I use these straps for my workouts on the dual pulley machine.

Click here to watch my Youtube video where I show my favorite booty building exercises. Do these and you will definitely notice a big change within two weeks. Yes, you can quote me on that.


Water Bottle

Another essential at the gym is a means to drink water. It’s a hassle to walk back and forth to the water fountain, so I typically try to bring a water bottle with me for every workout.

My preferred brand is the blender bottle. It doubles as a cup for both water and my protein shakes. It comes with a metal contraption that helps with blending any supplemental powders that you may be incorporating.


What’s in your workout bag?!


Pre-workout

You can’t talk about supplemental powders without mentioning pre-workout. Pre-workout is one of my must have gym items, especially if I workout in the morning.

c4 preworkout

C4 is my preferred blend. It gives me the boost I need to wake up and get to the gym. I take the pre-workout about 20 minutes before my workout. It has me floating across the gym for the duration of my workout.

I noticed that I can do a longer, more intense workout when I take C4. A more intense workout means greater gains, so I’m here for that.
