We may be deep in the heart of Texas, but our great state has managed to claw its way to the top of the culinary scene - and that scene includes lobster and lots of it. We love “lob-STER” (not pronounced “LOB-stah” in the Lone Star State). Personally, I have a soft spot for this hard-shelled crustacean. I lob it, and in my opinion, when it comes to the ultimate dinner, the epitome of "treating yourself" is ordering a lobster dish. "I'll have the lobster” is a bold order that usually earns ooohs and aaahs from around the table.
Irving is chock-full of these fresh and tasty crustaceans in dishes ranging from sushi to surf and turf. So, If you're a lobster lover looking to start your lobster love affair in Irving, you’re in luck. I’m about to tell you exactly where you can indulge in these yummy bad boys around town.
