“Perfect Crawfish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Tried them out a few weeks ago and I was totally impressed. The crawfish are seasoned to perfection, and this place rivals another restaurant I frequent.

“The best!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

They have catered a few functions that I have been to and it is always perfect. Boiled crawfish with all the sides. Very friendly service. They also have a drive thru that is always busy. Says a lot about them!

“Always done just right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Stelly's is a drive up spot for boiled crawfish. My wife and I love to stop here on the way to the camp! Their crawfish are always large, cooked to perfection, and easy to peel. We like spicy crawfish, and their "regular" will leave a good "burn" in your mouth, and finishes with a little sweat on your forehead, without pain!
We love that they boil their crawfish in seasoned water, like it should be done! This gives flavor to the meat and to the head juice. We avoid the bland flavored crawfish which are boiled first, and then "sprinkled" with seasoning. Alot of places have resorted to this shortcut. Not here!
Their potatos and corn are never overcooked. If I had to find one fault, it would be in the sausage. It's a smaller-than-weiner-sized link, with little flavor and not as much satisfying, juicy bite that you get from a larger piece of sausage.
This is of little consequence, as everything else is so good that we look forward to and plan to drive an hour and a half to cut the grass @ the camp, on a weekday after work, so we can enjoy an extra crawfish reward mid-week, when the cutting is done!

“To go boil crawfish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you would care to get your have your crawfish to go, then Stelly's Boiling Pot might be your spot. You can call in ahead, and pick it up at the drive thru window. From mild to hot you will enjoy the craw daddy's. Located off of Hwy 14 bypass just about a half mile.east from Mcdonald;s restaurant.
