this is a go up to the count, order, they bring it, then you pay after you eat. haven't seen the honor system in a restaurant in a long time. this is a local place with friendly staff and good good shrimp, oysters, and fish. give them a try when you are near the coit beltline intersection.

Hubs and I were looking for dinner and he chose this spot. We had eaten here once before and liked it. Glad we went back. Protocol is unusual. Order at the counter, give your name and pick up drinks. Find a table and listen for your name to pick up food at the window. Condiments have their own station with... More

I love there crab cakes and hush puppies. I have had one of their PO boys in the past as well. They also have a really nice patio area. Because of the food being so good, I wish the inside of the restaurant was improved a bit. I would prefer to be sat down and to pay at table, but... More

My first evening trip was to the Aw Shucks in west Plano, where I had two catfish filets about 7-8 inches long .....and flat. Wonderful, along with two large silver dollar sized fried oysters and great plank type fries. Plus some pricey gumbo that was good. Thought I would try the lunch menu at Coit (Big Shucks).....the one catfish was... More

We're new to the area so we decided to try out Big Shucks, when we walked in (early) for dinner we couldn't believe how long the line was. It is an order at the counter place & pay at the end. After you order they call your name over the intercom & you go and pick up your food. We... More

We stopped by here and the place was hopping. You order at the counter and find a table and they will call your name for pickup. When you leave you tell the cashier what you had. The shrimp po boy sandwich was good. Wife had the two piece catfish dinner. I didn't try the oysters but the price is very... More

Catfish and oyster combo. Fish was good, oysters were ok just not very tasty. It was good but probably not my favorite. Busy place

Big Shucks is one of those places that I can't stay away from. I love oysters and they have the best. You can mix your own red sauce and make it as hot as you want. After two dozen oysters on the half shell I just couldn't find the room for their key lime pie. Amazingly, in this day and... More

Stopped in for dinner and stumbled onto happy hour prices! Oysters for $7.99 dz. my friends, that is the best price in Dallas or Houston. This is a great oyster bar! Lots of bar space and all you can eat type service. No tab, just tell them how many oysters and beers you had on your way out! I also... More

It's been a while since I've been here, and I remember it being better. I remember liking Aw Shucks better in general, and I'm not sure what all of the great ratings are about for this location. It was OK, but not great. Started the meal with the shrimp cocktail. Some of the shrimp were mushy, but otherwise it was... More
