Thank you! The crawfish boil was a success! -Marian & John D.
Wow! Epic! The crawfish were amazing! Spices as always were fantastic. 150 people. 4 big pots of jambalaya were gone in just over an hour. Crawfish lasted til the end but all was eaten. It was a fantastic party. Thank you so much! -Colin W. (California)
Hi Robin and John: Thank you for everything! The crawfish boil was great. Everyone had a wonderful time and they are already asking about next year’s boil. Have a great day. Thanks! -Anthony L. (New York)
Thanks, John. The mudbugs were great! This year we celebrated our oldest daughter’s high school graduation with the boil & turned many Yankee high school girls onto crawfish with your help. As always – thanks for your superb service! -Mary & Tony L. (Connecticut)
