This spring, San Antonio seafood lovers will gain a new port of call.

Houston-based Mambo Seafood is taking over a defunct Joe's Crab Shack at 4711 N.W. Loop 410, according to a Jan. 9 filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Renovation on the Northwest San Antonio eatery is expected to start Jan. 31 and wrap up in May.

The chain, which specializes in Latin American seafood, popped up in the mid '90s and has since grown to 11 Houston-area stores. Its menu includes seafood platters, fresh oysters and seafood cocktails along with micheladas, aguas frescas and margaritas. 

Management at Mambo Seafood was unavailable for additional comment on its San Antonio expansion plans.
