Good Deals on Texas Oysters

Texas oyster season opened November 1, and the oysters have started to flood the local market. Lots of restaurants around town are running specials. The cheapest price I've seen is at the Ragin Cajun on Richmond, where they offer 25¢ oysters during happy hour (Mondays through Fridays from 3 to 7 p.m.). That's an incredible $3 a dozen. You'd be lucky to find one oyster that cheap at the Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York.

I saw a sign out in front of the Pappadeaux on Westheimer near Kirkwood in front of Phoenicia Supermarket for $3.95 a dozen -- that's the best oyster bargain I've seen outside of happy hour. I'm guessing that several, though not all, Pappadeaux are participating. If you know of a great oyster bargain somewhere, let us know about it.
