Go on and try it!

We visited on Wednesday when they had fried catfish and seafood étouffée. It was great! It's a small place, but the people are super friendly. We really felt welcomed. The catfish was really good and the macaroni and cheese was some of the best ever! We also had pound cake which was really good!

There were two of us. We tried the smothered pork chop, the seafood étouffée and fried catfish. The gravy on the pork chop was a light gravy, with a hint of kick to it. Meat was very tender. The fried catfish was expertly prepared. Crunchy on the outside, tender flaky on the inside. We finished it off with some peach... More

PROS: 1. Favorite of locals. GM plant is across the street. 2. Very good, traditional, southern home cooking. 3. Food is inexpensive – quantities large – good value for the money. CONS: 1. In a mini strip center, off the beaten track – sort of a hole-in-the-wall. 2. No atmosphere inside. Similar to a budget pizza place. 3. Very limited... More

I went in ready for gumbo... then found out they only do gumbo on Tuesdays and Thursdays. How about a po'boy? No, we only do po'boys on Saturday. They do have great red beans, but chicken is average. Didn't notice any excitement in anyone behind the counter... Not sure they wanted to be there either.

This is down home cooking cajun style. Three of us dined. Two had the chicken fried steak and I had the seafood gumbo. The seafood gumbo had a kick to it and it was loaded with shrimp, crayfish and crab, served with rice and a cornbread muffin. My two partners could not finish their chicken it was so large. The...

Deeply comforting soul food! Tasty chicken, etoufee is amazing! The smothered chop was fantastic, and the folks are as warm and welcoming as your favorite aunties and uncles!

We had lunch at Damian's and what a great meal. I love Cajun Food and try it where ever I can, they get it right at Damian's! As for the location and outside well it is in a older strip mall with a motorcycle repair shop...

I've driven down 360 thousands of times. Turned on Abrams hundreds of times. Never noticed this place. My loss. My son found Damian's on another website. Thought we'd give it a try. Unbelievable. Delicious. We went on a Friday when the special is smothered pork chops. So tender we didn't need the plastic knife. The plastic fork was sufficient. Smothered... More

The location is unassuming, but ideal when you realize the GM Assembly Plant is just across the highway. My wife and I have gone twice now and we both feel that this is authentic cajun style home cooking. Both times my wife had the Gumbo and added a side od Mac & Cheese. This is some of the best Mac...
