“Almost didn't write it because the lines are already too long!”
Reviewed 20 January 2010

This is on of the finest places to eat in all of Cajun country. Be aware, you will stand in line here but the wait is well worth it. The only way to decide what is the best is to go back over and over again and try everything they serve -- of course that could take years!

My favorite is the shrimp bowl aside an order of fries. Quite simply put, it is the bestfried shrimp dinner you can get anywhere.

Go there during lent and try the Crawfish Fridays! WOW!!!

“BEST po-boys”
Reviewed 5 November 2009

This is probably my fav place for a take out lunch. They put soo much meat! Their shrimp and oyster po-boys are amazing. Call in 10 minutes or so ahead, then just walk in, pay and go.
