Angry Crab Shack

If you like seafood -- in particular, Cajun seafood -- then there's absolutely no chance you won't like Angry Crab Shack in Mesa. This locally owned spot keeps things simple when it comes to ordering: Select a type of seafood from options such as crawfish, crab, and clams and then choose seasoning and level of heat. Your food arrives in a plastic bag and more likely than not, you'll enjoy it with your hands while wearing a bib. Things can get messy, but there's no greater reward for the work that bites of sweet crab in the restaurant's signature Trifecta sauce.
