Is it crawfish season yet? We are all waiting until the time we can get our hands on some hot, juicy, spicy boiled crawfish.  Ok now we're hungry, are you?

Well, get ready Sulphur, Louisiana, and Southwest Louisiana because there is a brand new crawfish joint coming your way on the West side of Calcasieu parish! It will be located in North Sulphur and will be called Koonce's Crawfish.

Koonce's will be locally owned and operated by Michael and Alisha Koonce from Sulphur, La. The new crawfish location will feature the best hot-boiled crawfish around cooked to perfection by the experienced staff and owners.

We love to see food places open up that are locally owned and operated. That is why we should also support our local businesses whenever we can! You will be able to go by Koonce's and get some crawfish or even have them come out to your location and cater your party, office get-together, or any other type of event you have.

In a post on Facebook, owners Alisha and Michael Koonce said,

This has been many years in the making and lots of set backs. Some of you know what we have been working on but lots of you do not. God’s timing has come for us and we can’t wait to experience this with all of you! I shared a post earlier that involved me and Michael.
I am here to officially announce that Koonce’s Krawfish will be open for this crawfish season!! I will be updating more information soon as in Facebook page and other info so please be looking for it!
