Total hole in the wall place off the beaten path but had a line both inside and out. Tried a sampling of boudin, boudin balls, and cracklins. Hard to beat! Great taste and just right spice.

Leaving New Orleans, i just had to stop in and get me some Boudin here at Billy's. This is the best boudin I've ever had! Surprised to see that they had Boudin Balls! They are great too!

Stopped to get some cracklin for my road trip. The boudin balls and cracklin was very good. I would recommend to others.

Great boudin and cracklings that remind me of my childhood. They offer both salted and seasoned cracklings.

Crawfish pie was awesome! Crispy outside and lots of crawfish filling. Get your boudin by the like or the pound. Frozen meat products available as well.

The smoked boudin is about as good as it gets. If it wasn't for the fact that the bathroom is about as nasty as you'll find I'd rate this place 5 stars. Would we go back? Sure. We'll just plan our trips better.
