Happiness is a dozen raw Gulf oysters on the half shell, and now is the time to seek them out. The cold weather means those beautiful bivalves are in season, so here are three places to find them for cheap.
3. Capt. Benny's
A dozen raw oysters (currently $7.77/dozen) at the boat-shaped bar and a spicy michelada make the world right. Bonus: brand new baked oysters are on the menu, with toppings like Monterrey Jack and fresh jalapeño slices.
2. Pappas Seafood House
Rejoice! This seafood hot spot has no time constraints on their cheap oysters. It's $7.95 all day, everyday for a dozen from the Gulf. Pair them with a discounted drink during their weekday 3 to 6:30 PM happy hour for maximum savings.
1. Danton's Gulf Coast Seafood Kitchen
Danton's is famous for their oyster specials. Mondays mean $7 for a dozen (which is half-price) between 4 and 8 PM; the rest of the weekdays bring 90 cent oysters during the regular 4 to 7 PM happy hour.
