Good food, long wait, dirty place.

I always enjoy the food, but the wait has become longer with every visit. Waiting an hour for food is completely ridiculous. And the cleanliness...total zero. At this point, I doubt the food is safe for consumption.

I'm native to the area and stopped for lunch. Had boudin and cracklings. There are posters stating "not fast food". They live up to that claim. The boudin was frozen then dumped in hot water to defrost and heat up. Not the best boudin, too much rice which made it mushy. It also had a strange fish smell. Better tasting... More

After reading reviews on here and on social media we thought we had to stop here for lunch on our cross country vacation. I mean how often do you get to eat gator? As soon as we pulled up my wife cringed and I thought we had went to the wrong place. The building exterior looks like a wreck and... More

I heard the food was good here so I walked in with my military service dog. No sooner did the door close behind me one of the servers came up and told me I would have to leave my dog outside when I told him she was a service dog he said he didn't give a damn. I left as... More

I arrived when the restaurant had just opened. Another patron, after placing her order, stormed back up to the counter demanding a towel to wipe her table which she said was filthy. After placing my order (which took 35 minutes and was still wrong), I noticed crud stuck to the counters, under the counters, and under the tables. As I... More

Every time I drive through Breaux Bridge I stop here for a shrimp poboy and some red beans n rice. The food is excellent and the restaurant is not fancy but serves up good food as its primary goal. The staff is helpful and the service is quick. Highly recommend everyone stop here for a good poboy!

Stopped by this restaurant on the way back to TX. It was very easy to get in and out of because it's right off the highway. This is not a fancy restaurant so do not expect all the bells and whistles. The employees are very nice and sweet. You order at the counter and they will bring the food for... More

Never heard of this place before our visit, just happened we needed gas and we saw the line. We figured the food had to be good, for the place is not exactly beautiful. So glad we stopped. We are no experts on cajun cuisine. The only places we have been at home are Pappadeaux and Razzoo's, but we know what... More

Really nice people and the food was tasty. It was fun to try various foods like boudin, crawfish and gator. If you want to really eat it and know how it actually tastes then get it grilled as opposed to deep fried since you can hardly tell the difference between one meat or the other once it is all battered....

Cracklins so fresh I had to wait for them to cool before I could eat them. Their fried chicken is as close to homemade I've ever found in a restaurant. Not fast food, so don't be in a hurry. It's worth the wait!
