Boiled peanuts are a big deal in Florida and as Dr. Dre once pointed out, big money and big nuts go hand in hand. Now, "Food engineer" Albion Williams Jr. has opened a dedicated boiled peanuts restaurant in Tampa called Tasty Nutz Peanuts.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Williams opened Tasty Nutz after a flood of support for his roadside stand and as orders for his nuts started coming in from all over the world.

The peanut shop opened Tuesday, Aug. 1 and so far, the reception has been huge. Apparently the new restaurant is so popular that yesterday they ran out of nuts, which forced the company to post to their Facebook page, "Thank you to everyone that stopped in to put our tasty nutz in your mouth!"

As of now, flavors include cajun (hot and mild), salted and sweet.

Tasty Nutz is located at 14930 N Florida Ave.
