Thumbs up Lopo's Mobile Crab Shack - Route 50 in South Riding - July 18, 2011, 12:13 PM

After seeing their trailer on Route 50 for the last 2, maybe 3 years, we finally had a chance to try some of their stuff.

Saturday, MrsCastle & I attended a house party at which they bought 6lbs of their steamed crab legs. The legs were very, very good size with lots of meat. You can chose your level of seasoning and they steam them right there on the spot for you. Needless to say, the 6lbs of crab lasted MAYBE 15 minutes between about 8 of us.

So MrsCastle and I got invited to watch the USA women's soccer game yesterday afternoon, and after still thinking about Saturday night's crab feast, we decided to hit Lopo's for round 2. Unfortunately, they sold almost their whole stash of legs but still had 3.5lbs left (of which they only charged me for 3lbs) and we also got 1lbs of shrimp. I placed my order and told the guy I'd be back at 1:20 to get them. Sara and I got there a little early, they were still steaming them so I chatted with both of the guys working while they finished my order. While waiting, they were also getting ready to cook up a large batch of blue crabs. They looked very fresh. Both the shrimp and legs were delicious, again and didn't last very long.

All in all, the operation is legit, he's got permits hanging from the windows. You can call ahead and place an order for pickup. Whole crabs are local (didn't get specific, but prolly Annapolis or something else close by), crab legs are from Canada and the shrimp are from Texas.

Crab legs = $13 per lb
Shrimp = $15 per lb
Prices vary on whole crabs, I can't remember them.

If you're in the area, give them a try!! We will definitely buy stuff from there on a regular basis.

Lopo's Mobile Crab Shack - On Route 50 between Elk Lick Road and Loudoun County Parkway on the eastbound side.

Not sure what his hours of operation are, but they're there Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays, for sure. Possibly open during the weekday evenings, as well. Just read somewhere online that they're open Thursdays thru Sundays, but I would advise calling ahead, if you don't live close enough.

I was in the same boat. Always curious. A friend's boyfriend (from St Louis) pulled the trigger while he was visiting.

I'm hooked.
