About Our Services

Sacks Crawfish delivers fresh crawfish to Reno and Sparks area.  We’re more than just a delivery service.  We also want to share the Cajun culture with you in a way your family will love.  

Yes we do Cater!

Some of you may not be comfortable with boiling crawfish for the first, second, or even the twentieth time.  Sacks Crawfish provides guidance in the hope that crawfish boils will become a common family dining experience in the community.  If you need anything, we are here to help and guide you to an enjoyable and unique experience.

There are plenty of websites, blogs, and videos to show you how to cook crawfish.  What they don’t have is a link to a real person who will come to your house and guide you personally.  Until now!

Contact DAVID HAGGARD, “The Cajun Guy” and owner: dhaggard@sackscrawfish.com or call/text 775 225 6932.  

Unlike all of the online businesses shipping from other states, Sacks Crawfish will deliver crawfish, and the owner will talk to you in person and can supply a pot, burner, propane, guidance, seasoning, and any other needs.

Sacks Crawfish wants to guide you in the ways of the boil start to finish.  A crawfish boil can be simple dinner in the backyard or a prolonged formal gathering of family and friends into the evening.  Either way, crawfish boils and seafood have always been about friends and family gathering and socializing over a terrific meal.  That’s the Cajun experience that Sacks Crawfish wants to help you create.

You can get crawfish almost anywhere, but Sacks Crawfish offers a personalized touch to add magic to your event.  We’ll help you create a new family tradition, with a Cajun twist.

There is nothing wrong with farm raised crawfish but Sacks Crawfish will give you the choice of wild caught as well.  What does that mean?  The crawfish you get have been processed after you order and shipped with less time sitting in a sack. That means you get a fresher product with less loss.  We are a local Reno business supporting other local businesses and rely on a good reputation for quality products.

What do you need for 25 pounds?

  • 30 to 32 quart turkey frier pot with basket
  • Burner with propane
  • Table with newspaper
  • Large garbage can

A 30 to 32 quart turkey frier pot with a basket will easily boil around 10 to 12 lbs of crawfish including a half of a small sack of potatoes, 2 to 3 onions, 2 lemons, and 3 to 5 corn cobs.  Using this size pot, you would make two batches.  If you are feeding 4 to 6 people, this should be sufficient.  

Estimated prep time: 1 hour

Estimated cook time: 30 minutes (5-7 min boil and 20 min soak)

Not everyone has a 60, 80, or 100 quart pot sitting around.  For a larger crawfish boil, a small pot can be time consuming.  Not to worry.  Equipment is available for rent or purchase.  

Sacks Crawfish’s primary objective is to provide customers with a memorable social dining experience.  We will provide the guidance, equipment, seasonings, and a piece of mind so you can have an enjoyable, stress-free experience.  

Some of the live crawfish provided by Sacks Crawfish is produced from Lake Tahoe by local fisherman, and we don’t want their efforts wasted.   Sacks Crawfish wants to help you try something new.  Order today.
