We stopped at this restaurant and it was the best choice we made. We were looking for authentic southern food. We found it here! The Muffuletta was delicious(homemade bread with meat and cheese piled high with an olive spread)Tooo much for 2 people to eat. Also ordered Cochon de Lait Po Boy(pork cut up in roll), the salads were huge... More

Briefly visiting Alexandria from Oklahoma. I wanted to try something new and different of the local food. Ive never had Gumbo of any kind. I had my first Gumbo ever here. It was excellent. I loved it. On top of the food being great they were friendly and polite. The interior is like a small cafe with a casual relaxed... More

I had the roast beef po-boy, overstuffed, very tasty, great french bread, almost, almost, almost run down your arm, drip off your elbow good. The shrimp sandwich is really good, hot, and tasty; served with fries, yes you can request gravy fries. Closest to NOLA food as you can get here in central Louisiana.

The ladies were very friendly, and the food was delicious! I had the special, a fried shrimp basket with fries. The dipping sauce was tasty, the shrimp were crunchy but not hard, and the cajun fries were perfect (great in the sauce!). I tried the jambalaya - it was also good but I was too stuffed to eat much of... More

We had red beans and rice, shrimp po'boy and pulled pork po'boy. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. The service was friendly and helpful as we asked questions about the menu.

I had the shrimp po'boy with the Cajun fries, and also a side of jambalaya. It was amazing! The shrimp was the best I've... More
