What’s in a name? Aw Shucks was founded by two righteous dudes, Bob Peterson and Scott Holyfield. These former executives from America’s most colorful airline, Braniff International, chose the name of “Aw Shucks” because it was just a fun play on words that they felt would work - and it DID! Bob had a favorite seafood concept from the south coast and modeled his beloved Shucks after it. When Bob and Scott were initially developing the Aw Shucks menu in 1983, they offered only a few items: catfish, shrimp, oysters, and all combinations thereof so that there was no more than a total of 9-10 items on the original menu. Bob’s theory was to do it simply and do it awesomely. That’s how Aw Shucks was born!
Since 1983, Aw Shucks and Big Shucks Oyster Bar have been the best places in North Texas to veg out and enjoy raw oysters, shrimp, catfish, crab legs, po'boy boy sandwiches, a nice cold beer, and tasty crawfish when in season.
