Houston Press -- Bigger and Battered,Where does Baytown Seafood get those enormous shrimp? By Robb Walsh

I ate there, there are a great many in the Houston area. the first time it was great but I took a bunch of people the next time and nobody got shrimp and it was decidely subpar. Next time I know, get the shrimp.

According to Walsh, the Jumbo shrimp are Asian Tiger shrimp, the biggest commercial shrimp but bland. The grilled shrimp is Gulf Shrimp not as big but with more taste, sweeter.

He also closes with a warning that many seafood places in Houston, like this one, label other fish as Red Snapper.
