Okay, so this was our first time to try the outstanding boudin (boo-DAN), boudin balls, cracklins, and crawfish pie at Billy's, but I can assure you it will not be the last! A fun and busy place to visit and the food is, well, to die for - figuratively speaking, of course.

I was traveling from Florida to Texas on I-10 and made a quick stop in Scott, Louisiana for some lunch. I saw a sign on the highway for Billy's, and thought I'd give it a try. It was amazing! The crawfish pie was delicious. It had a great crust and the filling was amazing. Also had a couple of boudin... More

Stopped in for cracklins and left with cracklins boudin balls and pepper jack boudin balls. Cracklins were big hunks of crunchy pig with spicy dusting. Yum. Boudin balls were good but I honestly didn't prefer the cheese. It almost was too rich in flavor and I LOVE cheese. All in all good. The line was about 15 dead but moved... More

We stop at Billy's every time we can. Their cracklins and boudin balls are top shelf bar none. Love the crawfish pies. We tried the competition nearby and there is no competition. Don't get discouraged at the long lines they usually move pretty fash. Only problem we see is that they are not closer to home. (Texas). Plus they ship.

She recommended the Boudin Balls with cheese saying they were amazing. My fiancé and I each got a ball and 1/4 lb of Cracklins. The ball were... More

Travelling from England on a driving tour of the southern states we met a guy in New Orleans who was from Scott, LA. As we were driving to Houston he told us we had to stop off at Billy's for Boudin Balls. No clue what this was he explained and we couldn't miss out on such a good tip off.... More

Billy has by far the best boudin! They have the best boudin balls and egg roll boudin and excellent cheese stuffed boudin balls and eggrolls! We stop there everytime we go that way and stock our freezer. Just writing this makes me hungry!

Whenever we come this way we make it a point to stop in and get a box of boudin sausage links ($26) and some large boudin balls ($1.49 ea.). Great seasoning and flavor. My husband is a trucker and I am suggesting to you folks that y'all deliver food up to the truck stop or have a food truck right... More
