Funny story about my dad and Joe's Stone Crab. We decided to have a family dinner at my apartment this past Saturday and my father instructed my younger brother to get 5 mediums from the takeout area of Joe's. When Sean showed up with the Joe's takeout in hand, my father berated him, stating that he meant "selects", the medium size, since "medium" at Joe's is the smallest size. Our father's contention was that my brother should have known what he meant.
Well, the last time I went to the famous crab shack, I ate in the actual restaurant, and Big Bucks Bella always orders larges. They really are a lot better, and eating the mediums gets tedious long before you are full (which could be a good thing if you are calorically challenged). So, the long and short of it is that I have changed my tune and recommend that you order at least the selects, and the larges are even better.
