Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

Instagram and internet famous comedian Kwaylon Rogers, star of the Blame It on Kway video series, will open his next Louisiana seafood restaurant Krab Queenz in Atlanta, What Now Atlanta reports. The restaurateur and Dallas native hopes to open Krab Queenz-ATL by the end of April in the former Gladys Knights Chicken & Waffles on Peachtree Street downtown.

The menu for Krab Queenz centers around by-the-pound or plate, butter-soaked seafood such as king crab legs and jumbo shrimp, paired with plenty of daiquiri options, ranging from 16-ounce cups to jugs and pitchers.

Seafood comes served with a variety of butters, including honey garlic, barbecue, and spicy in varying degrees of heat (mild to “hot as hell”,) and sides like sausage links, Cajun rice, and sweet corn.

Krab Queenz has locations in Houston and Baton Rouge. Rogers is also opening a location in Dallas sometime this year.
