If you still are looking for a good seafood experience, you really don't need to look any farther than Angry Crab Shack in Mesa to see the flaw in that thinking. The locally-owned restaurant serves a menu of Cajun seafood that includes crab, shrimp, and crawfish (on a seasonal basis).
And there's good news for fans of such spicy sea fare: The restaurant will open a second location in Phoenix later this year.
The sister restaurant, called Angry Crab & BBQ, will be located at 2808 E. Indian School Road, on the northeast corner of Indian School and 28th Street.
The restaurant is expected to be open sometime in September. In addition to the extensive menu of seafood available at Angry Crab in Mesa, the new restaurant will also serve Cajun style barbecue.
