Reviewed 27 December 2013

If you are looking for some really great peel-n-eat shrimp, you have to check this place out. For those who have ever been to a old school crawfish boil, you know what it feel like to have your lips and the bottom half of your face burn for a couple of hours afterward. It's like a badge of honor. No exception here! The potatoes and corn are like little sponges to all the spicy goodness in the boil. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and had great flavor. If you have never been to a crawfish boil, check this place out!

The decor is definitely southern Louisiana. Picnic tables and box fans. The oleo runs freely and the crawfish are spicy. Come here for the food and enjoy the atmosphere.

Loved it!

I have eaten here every year during crawfish season.

The good news first: When they are on they are on. The crawfish are some of the best you will ever have when they are good.

The bad: They are usually very crowded. Seating is limited and this place is hot as hell. No AC at all. The owner could care less after you get your food. Last time I was there he was so drunk he could barely stand. This place is always very expensive. No matter the market price, they get top dollar.

Overall, I think Half Shell Seafood on Texas is better food and value. Gonna start going there instead.

This is a hole in the wall type place with super food. I may have to go back to Matchitoches just to get more etouffee. It looked like everyone in town came though getting boiled crawfish and shrimp to go. The tempature was about 80 with no sign of A/C and no table clothes. You site at picnic tables. Like a said a hole in the wall with super food. I gave it an Excellent rating because I am all about the food.
