It was a great day in Harlem with the opening of Joe's Crab Shack located on 126st and St. Nicholas Ave.
With locations in Times square and Newark , NJ and across the country, Joe's Crab Shack is head quartered in Houston Texas.
There were over 600 people that waited in line overnight to enter .
The first 100 were awarded free crabs for lunch. Jim Mazany is the President and has hired and trained over 200 Harlemites for this location only. Jim has trainers from all over the contry in Harlem working with the youth for opening day.
Joe's Crab is also a huge supporter of the Autism's Speak Foundation and believes in giving back and serving the community.
When asked why Harlem, his answer was, "Harlem is an upcoming and growing community that fits very well with the company's outreach and business motto".
With a very affordable menu, one can purchase fish, a variety of crabs, lobster, exotic drinks and service with a smile for about $30.
