Gilhooley’s Raw Bar; San Leon, TX

Located in the middle of a dirt-and-shell parking lot, with an aging boxcar bisecting the building, this rustic seafood shack serves superb shellfish supplied by Misho’s Oyster Company, a large Texas processor. In addition to its fresh raw Gulf oysters, the bar is also popular for a barbecued dish called Oysters Gilhooley: fresh oysters topped with garlic-butter and Parmesan cheese, then smoked in a pecan-wood fire pit. 222 9th St.; 281-339-3813.
