My wife and I had this place highly recommended to us by our host of the last few days. We were on our way out of LaFayette and couldn't resist popping in as all his other tips had been spot on! The boudin balls were the best I've ever eaten. The crunchy batter was fried chicken inspired and stepped the... More

This is a must every time we are near the area to pull over and grab us some boudin balls and wraps with pepper jack cheese. My daughter loves the cracklins, I'm not a big fan. These are the best I've ever had. This is not a restaurant, but rather a pull in stop for gas and food. BEST KEPT... More

Heavily debated. Don's specialty meats Boudin Balls are better. Billy's batters their Boudin Balls and it makes them greasy and more like a big ball of deep fried batter. They are slightly cheaper and offer a few other varieties of Boudin. They are tasty but I find them hard to digest due to the deep fried batter.

Stop 2 Billy's in Scott Louisiana Our Boudin trail continues ---- Billy's regular Boudin ball is gigantic with a nice crispy crust! The first bite was completely delicious. It was nicely seasoned, peppery but not overly peppery, and very fresh. Overall really good Boudin ball! I will say that this location was extremely better than the one in Krotz Springs.... More

These folks know their stuff !!! We were introduced to Billy's by friends who live in the area. They said Billy's was the best and they were absolutely correct !!! The boudin is GREAT, cracklins are yummy, cheese stuffed boudin balls, crawfish pie, & the cheese stuffed egg rolls are all very delicious. We tried everything, I think, & Billy's... More

Specialized in Bouton and crackins. Never had before. Made with rice, sausage, liver, and spices. Then deep fat fried. Cracklins pure deep fried fat. Neither were appealing but they had a line 10 people deep. So someone likes them. It's a specialty in the area, as several places to buy them. Not my taste. Too much grease.
