The crawfish boil at Red Horse Saloon last Saturday was a sellout and great start to the winter season, said owner Alana Smith.

“We had 250 pounds of crawfish and used it all; 150 to 200 people came for crawfish from 2 p.m. into the night,” she said.

Smith started serving the boils in 2021, and it keeps growing.

“We pride ourselves on our crawfish boils. We started on New Year’s Eve and have been told by many people that we have the best boil around,” she said in 2021 to the Bulletin.

Among the hungry folks at the Red Horse Saloon on Saturday were David and Lisa Mansfield from Schroeder, Texas, and Leonard and Tina Lopez, from Yoakum, Texas.

Both couples are joined by marriage and said they came to Bandera last year, where they had so much fun, including at the Red Horse Saloon crawfish boil.

Smith moved to Bandera in June, 2014, and started bartending at the Longhorn Saloon, then got a job at Hondo National Bank, where she worked her way up to the title of operations officer.

She now also owns Boot and Saddle Saloon, and Shotgun Sports Bar & Grill.
