Angry Crab Shack is a gloriously messy, crowded and loud place – and Mesa families love it. The Cajun seafood boils and other items are delicious, affordable and nobody ever leaves hungry - or angry.

“Here, you eat with your hands,” said local co-owner Ronald Lou, a former Arizona State University and NFL standout turned East Valley restaurateur extraordinaire. “If you’ve just had your nails done or bought a new business suit, this might not be your place.”

There are a variety of appetizers, soups, sandwiches and Angry Baskets to please every taste for lunch and dinner. You can even dig into some tasty barbecue at the East Mesa location, but the star is the family-style bag boils. Spice choices range from Me No Likey Spicy and Wimpy to Scorching Scorpion and Grim Reaper.
