I’ve been driving past the Crabby Chris Crab Shack in New Smyrna Beach since it open along US 1 North of Canal Street in May. I’ve learned that parking lots never lie and this one is always full, which tells me there is something special happening in the modest looking building at 440 North Dixie Freeway.
The culinary genius behind the grill at Crabby Chris is Chris Horton who was looking to create a brick and mortar destination closer to the beach. Chris has expanded his Central Florida following and is really building upon his successful Orlando food-truck business.
The menu at Crabby Chris Crab Shack is diverse with everything from tacos to burgers. The gourmet crab cake sandwiches are crispy on the outside and soft and meaty on the inside. Don’t miss out on the fresh pita chips and pico de gallo, I ate so many I almost spoiled my appetite.
The fish tacos are fresh and meaty…
I think I might be in love.
I think I might have to drive over there right now!
