Great home style cooking

Loved the jambalaya! The gumbo is good too, and everything seems to be from old family cajun recipes.

I had my very first jambalaya at this location. I asked the employee Liz for something very typical of the area and that's what she suggested. She pointed out a very yummy combination that some customers had ( which by the way was her fave as well) "gumbolaya" but I was not quite ready to mix two new tastes yet.... More

Their catfish and jambalaya lunches can't be beat. They serve great food at a great price and their service is terrific.

Great for a picnic. Pick of some drinks (beer) and a bucket of jambalayee and you are set for the afternoon. Come early because they close fairly early.

I work around the corner from this place and I eat there a lot. The gumbo and the jambalaya are great. Don't expect above place to eat though but it's quickamd the food good.

I think I paid way too much for a very small serving. I wasn't terribly impressed.

Best Jambalaya by far. Get the spaghetti jambalaya. This location has the most character of any in town.
