Where’s the cheapest crawfish in Baton Rouge?

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, which means crawfish become even more desirable, especially on Fridays.

Currently, Winn Dixie is boasting the lowest prices for boiled mudbugs at $3.49/lb, according to The Crawfish App. Winn Dixie locations on Siegen Lane, Coursey Boulevard, Burbank Drive, and Airline Highway are also selling live crawfish for $2.99/lb, which is a bit more common among their list of vendors.
