My family has been going to Shucks for over 20 years. This is THE place for oysters in the area...hands down. During a recent visit home, we had an oyster blowout at Shucks like no other. Raw oysters, candied oysters, roughneck oysters (these were new and DELISH - charbroiled w/ cream cheese, jalapenos, and bacon!), seafood gumbo (simply the best), and fried oysters...my head is still spinning from the greatness of that meal. I am an oyster fiend, and their fried oysters just cannot be beat! We finished our meal with the bread pudding (they can split it for you in the back b/c it's a BIG portion), and I suggest you get that too. The owner may be the friendliest person ever and stopped by to ensure we were having a wonderful meal. He said the bread pudding is a 60+ year old recipe...it was perfect!
Lafayette people, make the drive to Abbeville for the best oyster dinner you'll ever have! It's absolutely worth it.
