Located in a nondescript strip-center along Bellaire, Hank's has a hole-in-the-wall kind of feel to it. No more than a dozen tables comprise the interior, with neon beer signs, New Orleans paraphernalia and flat-screen TVs lining the walls. The main draw here is clear: crawfish. Hank's serves theirs boiled in pound increments, with five varying levels of spice and the option of garlic or no garlic. Wings are also available, along with other fried sides like boudin balls, hush puppies and crawfish fried rice. Other Louisiana favorites such as po-boys and red beans and rice are also offered. Hank's hosts a diverse crowd, from single diners plowing away at crawfish to groups with pitchers of beer and families with young kids.
