Best Family-Friendly Hole In the Wall
D. Ross Cameron
The traditional makeup of a family restaurant isn't usually walls of graffiti, nonstop hip-hop, or a location across from a tattoo parlor. But Rockin' Crawfish is all things unique, and that includes a flatscreen playing rap videos, scads of customer scrawlings, and a position on Foothill Boulevard. Tablecloths are slabs of butcher paper, and the menu includes Cajun-style seafood sold by pound. Bring the kids, because they will love the bibs available for anyone eating anything that needs to be cracked, de-headed, or inhaled, and that the food will arrive in a plastic grocery bag–even when the order isn't to go. Get messy, get Oakland, and get here.
