North Siders looking for a fried-shrimp fix should head here, where jumbo, Gulf-caught beauties are breaded in a secret blend of seasonings and bread crumbs that let their fresh flavor shine through. Other by-the-pound fried delights include scallops, catfish, clam strips and an assortment of artery-clogging-but-tasty sides, like fluffy hush puppies, onion rings and potato pancakes. There are a handful of counter seats, but take your grease-streaked brown bags to go, so we don’t have to watch you lick your fingers.
