When I was invited along with someone who had a coupon for a good deal on all you can eat rock shrimp at Dixie Crossroads, I gladly agreed. We drove to Titusville and were greeted by a giant concrete shrimp.
There was a wait, so I passed the time by watching the fish in the restaurant's stocked pond.
We were seated, and were quickly served these delicious hush puppies covered in powdered sugar.
Caesar salad came next.
And then it was time for the rock shrimp. The first plate of these butter soaked crustaceans consisted of about three dozen rock shrimp and a side of cheese grits.
Rock shrimp and cheese grits...
On a normal occasion, three dozen rock shrimp and the various sides would have been plenty to eat. It should have been too much to eat, but since the waitress kept on bringing out more plates of shrimp, we ate more of these delicious cockroaches of the sea. If my calculations are correct, our table went through sixteen dozen shrimp by the end of the meal. The amount of food consumed is kind of disgusting and obscene thinking back to it now.
The shrimp in the back is waving goodbye...
