I have to say I'm a crab leg person. Even though they both taste similar to me, the texture is more to my liking for crab legs and they are less expensive. So please share which is your favorite and why.

I love both dearly, however I would say that I prefer lobster. For one, it is much less work for much more yield on the meat generally with a lobster. The other reason is probably just more rarity. Crab is something I have much more of, and so lobster is seen more as a special treat that if I were to choose between the two I would go for it.

I like both, but king crab legs are more dependably tender and juicy than lobster tails are. Nothing makes me madder than to lay out all that money for lobster and then have a tough lobster tail to contend with.

Bring me a pound of king crab legs ANY DAY!

LET'S GET CRACKIN'!

We will take snow crab legs over lobster. Price is a big factor for us.

The crab legs are fun for the kids and I to eat at home, and at home only! It's a messy job.

Now if we could get "cheap" lobster like the news was talking about all yr, maybe different answer.

When I first read the question, I thought uh, oh this is gonna be a tough decision. However, since you provided both as a viable option, I took it

Crab legs are much more easier to come by though.

Lobster tails for me, Though I eat crab meat believe it or not I have never eaten crab legs because I cannot be bothered with the shell and all, lobster tail is easier.
