Cowboy Riding Crawfish

No cowboy. No crawfish. Just Barbecue. Nothing to see here. It was a fun attraction while it lasted. So long!

His hat is almost gone but the cowboy still has a big grin. It's right across from a Buc-ees gas station.

Swamp Shack restaurant displays a 25-foot-long crawfish on top, ridden by a mannequin cowboy. On my last visit, the business had been turned into a temporary fireworks stand, but Crawfish Cowboy was still riding!
