Cameron Slater
didn’t even like crab legs until he lived in Florida for a couple of years. “It’s a little different when you’re from Arkansas,” Slater said about an appreciation for crustaceans.

But now, Slater serves up crab legs three ways from his food truck, Seafood Junkies, at 5310 Mabelvale Pike, in the parking lot of Furious Styles. Cam’s Crab Tray, which you can order in Cajun, lemon or garlic styles, come with shrimp, potatoes and corn; a $20 tray will buy you two “large clusters” and the sides. Or, you can buy the Seafood Junkies Tray and get three crab legs, shrimp, crawfish, potatoes and corn for $26. Or, if you want to feed more folks, get the Seafood Overdose with seven “crab clusters,” shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn and sausages. The $100 Seafood Sensation piles on the crab and adds crab cakes as well, and will feed 12. He also serves seafood pasta, and you can customize your order, too.

Slater, 30, is a product of the Network for Student Success at Pulaski Technical College, which works with students from at-risk backgrounds; he is now a mentor himself, and his story was part of a 2014 article in the New York Times.

Since Slater does all the cooking, he says it’s best to call in your order at 501-831-6525 before you come. The food truck is usually open noon to 8 p.m., but check Seafood Junkies’ Facebook page in case Slater is doing a show on the online Real Underground Radio Station (therealunderground.com). Slater hopes to move the Seafood Junkies to the 801 Chester St. food truck court in July.
