Spring in Texas means it’s prime time for crawfish season, even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Expect spicy boils with potatoes, sausage, and corn, spots offering special dishes, or markets selling the live freshwater crustaceans by the pound, all available for takeout, curbside pickups, delivery services, and patio dining.

Here is Eater’s guide to Austin’s best bets for the seasonal tradition. This means regular crawfish boils from Quality Seafood, crawfish cakes from Big Easy Bar and Grill, Viet-Cajun takes from Le Bleu, and plenty of crawfish etouffee.

Remember: prime crawfish season tends to run from March through May, though boils sometimes still happen in June. Perfect those peeling skills now.

The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.
