Joey’s Shrimp House, a stand on Western Avenue in Humboldt Park dedicated to all things fried, opened this week. It features such classics as fried shrimp and fried fish sandwiches, along with some interesting detours like frog legs and soft shell crabs. But it’s the decor we’d really like to talk about. If you’re going to go with the whole fried seafood shack theme you might as well have stools that look like buoys and make the workers wear navy hats. Sure, it’s hot as hell inside right now because there is no air conditioning inside, but that level of dedication is inspiring. We were able to get our hands on the menu, which you can read in full below.
