Stopped in for a snack and wife ordered us a fried pork chop, a couple of boudin balls and a boudin links. It was all so good and pretty much became lunch. In the way home we stopped again and I bought a frozen chicken stuffed with boudin and can't wait to cook it.

My sister Donna and I did a little "road trip" consisting of doing a "boudin trail". Basically stopping at multiple locations that sell boudin/boudin balls and writing reviews on them... so here goes - Stop 1 Dons Speciality Meats in Scott, La My sister Donna and I decided to try the regular Boudin ball first so it would not obstruct...

Great place for Boudin Balls. Never had them until a year ago, then compared them to other places. By far the best in LA. Plenty of other good eats to take home and try. Specialty meats, stuffed meats, sausages, crawfish pies and desserts too. A wide assortment of sauces and other specialty items.

Don's use to be excellent but over time things aren't the same.Plate lunches were huge and filling but like I said smaller plates and food just isn't the same as before when first opened.Use to be so many people there you would have to wait in line and now there isn't much of all at.

I am a Boudin connoisseur. I have had boudin from all over Louisiana and Don's is some of the best I have ever had. I always wanted to stop and get some but never got the chance till this month.. If you don't know what boudin is it is rice, pork, and seasoning stuffing in a casing. If you get... More

Every time I pass by here I stop and get some boudin. It is the best I have ever eaten. It has shredded pork instead of ground up pork. It is awesome. The cracklings are not the best. Seemed over cooked and too salty. The boudin can be ordered online and is priced well. We also got a chicken breast... More

Don's has the best selection of cajun items, from fresh and frozen meats, sausages, and prepped cajun meats, ready to cook. They also carry spices, mixes, cast iron and enameled pans and Dutch ovens, baked goods, and of course, cracklins, Pork rinds and other goodies. They have a small take out food stall with sandwiches and hot food. This is... More

Really liked the boudin. My wife ordered shrimp po-boy; bread was glorified hot dog bun...very disappointing. Also could not get lemon for shrimp nor for iced tea. We'll return but not for pro-boy!

Love the place, we got 4 packs of seafood boudin, tried one and didn't stop till all 4 packs were gone. You have to understand my wife is a small woman and usually doesn't eat much, but she kept up with me through all 4 packs! Also loved the tasso and everything we've gotten there so far!

Thank Donald R
