In town for work and needed to find a local place for lunch. Lil Cajun House was recommended. Friendly staff and good service. I had the Shrimp Po Boy and cajun fries. The roll was fantastic as well as the shrimp and fries, all fresh and good size portions. A definite plus for lunch in the area.

I was in Alexandria overnight on business and had a craving for a shrimp po boy. I entered into a google search and of the 3 places that showed in my search this one was the closest to my hotel. It is close to the Mall. I arrived around 430 pm and was the only one there. I was waited... More

I had the catfish basket and it was excellent. It included six large filets and fries. This is an order at the window type restaurant so there is nothing fancy here. It seemed that most of people were doing carry-out not eat in. Service was a little slow but the good food made up for it. I doubt I will... More

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.
