I love to eat raw oysters! Does anyone know of a good all you can eat oyster bar or even an all you can eat seafood buffet that has raw oysters? It does not have to be in Shreveport, LA., but I am also close to Longview, Texarkana, and Tyler, Texas.

    I think it's John Edge in "Southern Belly" who recommends Herby K's @ 1833 Pierre Ave. in Shreveport (318) 424-2724 for crabs and po' boys.In Tyler: Stanley's Famous Pit BBQ 525 S.Beckham (903) 593-0311 or Mercado Mexican Restaurant for Tex-Mex at 2214 WSW Loop 323 (903) 534-1754. I read good things about Bryce's Cafeteria in Texarcana 2021 Mall Dr. (903) 792-1611. The fried chicken gets a shout out.Finally, in Longview: Bodacious BBQ 2227 Mobberly (903) 753-8409 and for a good burger theres a local mini-chain called Jucy's Hamburgers 2701 N. Eastman Rd. (903) 758-9056. Hope this helps.

        I don't know as July is the time to eat fresh- raw oysters....and I don't think they are legal, to fish that is, in the months of May, June, July and August..... I thought oysters are only fished in months that have the letter "R" in them- or is that no longer true?

          I live in the DFW metroplex and have seen all you can eat oysters at a few Chinese buffets. I had oysters pappadeaux (oyster rockefellers at most places) a cpl weeks ago and while I was there the waitress told a customer that just the warm water oysters are affected and during the summer they order from cold waters but they aren't as tasty ( at least to texans)

            I just wanted to add I too love raw oysters, raw clams, steamers, fried clams, fried calamari, baked oysters, oyster stew, clam chowders both New England and Manhattan but absolutely despise fried oysters.

              It's not illeagal to harvest oysters during those months. The reason I always thought you couldn't eat oysters during months with no Rs is because it is the middle of summer, the water is warm and it promotes bacteria in the oysters. Most oysters in restaurants now are imported from all over and safe most anytime.
