Soft Shell Crab Taco at Big & Little's
Photpgraph: Nick Murway Soft Shell Crab Taco at Big & Little's

This quick-service fish shack shows some gourmet leanings: It’s run by former Hell’s Kitchen contestant Tony D’Alessandro, the standout fish in the fish and chips is breaded and fried to order, burgers are made from Angus beef and the french fries are larded with hunks of foie gras. Though recently relocated, this place is still a dive—which is how it made it onto Guy Fieri’s show, too.

So I've been here about 3-4 times. Let me just say...this is like a glass of fine wine. Just gets better with time. Wow, I was so impressed the last time we came. We got a TON of the tacos...I think like every single one. Al pastor, poke, fish, ribs, etc. all were soooooo good. Off the menu item-fried cheeseburger. It was delicious. Falafel burrito was good. Shrimp po boy one of the best. It's BYOB! It's a fast casual but know, there's usually a little line and the food is made to order so it'll be a few people it comes up. But it's worth the wait. Their sauces are amazing.

If you have never been, you are missing out on LIFE! I love this place, and if it wouldn't at some point make me gain a significant amount I would eat there everyday. The softshell crab, the duck taco's and the fries.... The fries are so darn delicious! They only take cash, but no worries, they have an ATM! Its kid friendly in case you have them, but its just a great stop to meet up and chow down with a few friend. #yourwelcome
