    The food was absolutely horrible! The crab cakes were the worst crab cakes I've ever had and the catfish was bad too. I went to this restaurant with high expectations and was throughly let down.

    Great mud bugs. A little over priced, but good quality food. When it's busy it can get a little crowded sitting at the communal picnic tables.

    Order the crawfish in a bucket. Portions are large. Come during season as its a bit pricy

    By far one of my favorite cajun restaurants... a lil on the pricey side but the food is excellent. Seating isn't the best, either.

    Jalapeño cornbread is good. Just doesn't have the kick you'd expect from something with "jalapeño" in the title.

    Allen Arcade · December 31, 2012

    Their po-boys are great. They've got about a dozen+ variety of them. Here's the boudin po-boy. Yum.

    Don't eat here. I own a business down the street and they dumped in my dumpster and gave me alot of grief when I wanted them to clean it out. They are JERKS!!! Never been back.
