I'm from Louisiana and know Cajun food....yuck. The gumbo looked like veggie soup. Sorry but very over prices and not true cajun.

Being from the south, I was somewhat disappointed in the food. If you have had a New Orleans Poboy, you know what I mean in taste. Their gumbo & shrimp creole were tasty but not worth the price. The folks are very nice and friendly.

I have to say the shrimp I had was great but that was about it. The young girl that has waited on us twice seems like she just started that day but she has been there a awhile (over a year), they have a limted menu and if you ask for anything they just say no. I have always wanted... More

There are no words for this small eclectic little spot in Downtown Franklin except amazing, exceptional, fabulous, so you get my drift. I love shrimp and grits and these were off the chart. Also had the boudain balls and they were off the chart! Wife had gumbo that was exceptional as well. Seating is limited so come early or late.... More

Love this place so much! It's a little spot and you might miss it if you aren't looking, but man oh man is it worth eating at! I have been to New Orleans many times and this is the only place in this area where you will find quality Cajun food. The food is delicious and the beignets are to... More

I would have giving this place 5 stars except that if you are NOT christian, then you are forced to listen to very loud jesus music. I completely respect their right to believe in whatever they like, but do they really think that by forcing clients to listen to their religious music that we will actually be saved? I digress....

Not a large space, but quaint. If you are looking for real cajun cooking, then this is it. Very good. If you have time and a larger party go to their Dad's place in Fly, TN and tailgate while you wait for your table. Both will not disappoint.

The name of the restaurant has changed to Boudreaux Brothers, but has the same great food and unique take on Cajun food. Small restaurant, so either go early or make reservations.
