Fruge Seafood Brings Crawfish From a Louisiana Farm to Dallas Restaurants


Being in full swing of crawfish season, we're guaranteed a choice of multiple boils every weekend in Dallas. The atmosphere of people gathering around community tables to pop tails and suck heads while guzzling beer is truly something to behold. Now approaching the end of season, these little bug-eyed morsels are reaching full maturity. At nearly every boil we either pose or hear questions such as, “I wonder how fresh these are,” or “How long does it take for them to get to Dallas?” There’s one company that ensures they reach our tables as fresh as possible — and in fact, owner and President Mike Fruge of Fruge Seafood has been delivering them to Dallas himself from Branch, Louisiana, for more than 20 years.
