Not much ambiance but some of the best fried chicken around

This place has the best fried chicken I've ever had. And I've had a lot of fried chicken. Not an easy place to get to unless you in the area but if you ARE in the area, make the time to eat here. It's basic, it's inexpensive and it's as good as fried chicken gets.

Clean, good service, fast service, waitress did not let any of the 5 of our drinks run out. Had fried crab claws, boudin balls, onion rings. and the best appetizer was the fried bacon wrapped shrimp. They ran out of gator, and because they are not online and do not have a menu with carbs for us diabetics, no 5... More

Drive 20 miles out of the way to bring guests from Atlanta to dinner. Got there an hour before closing time to find s locked door. Server came door and said " sorry, we decided to close early tonight. Not enough business." Well they missed my $200. Not going back ever.

We went on a swamp trip which takes off and returns just behind the restaurant....then stayed for a 4 PM dinner - very slightly slow, but wow - the food was better than what we had at the top restaurants in New Orleans . I had the grilled frog legs with small salad and baked potato. The frog legs were... More

Maybe I was spoiled by all the good food in New Orleans, but I thought this place was merely good, maybe a 3.5 stars, but not 4 star. The hush puppies were the best part, and they were great. The Onion rings were good, especially with the included sauce. The crab cake, however, was a little too fishy, not top... More

My husband and I like to ride the Harley on a Sunday to eat at Bayou Delight. It is on a two lane country road. One side of the road is the bayou and the other side are houses or cane fields. Sometimes you can spot an alligator in the bayou behind the restaurant. During football season you will be... More

We went in this weekend, with a party of 20. Our waitress was on point not missing a beat. Our food arrived in a timely manner, everyone's order was correct. We haven't been here in years, it's a little out the way but we'll worth the trip. Everyone's plate was empty after 20 minutes. The food was good and plentiful.... More

Their food is really good, though I was very limited because they didn't have a lot of food without meat. Their onionrings are great and homemade! And the gumbo was delicious!

I have visited this area for 30 years, and my parents finally took my to Bayou Delight...we will be making it a tradition! The food was WONDERFUL! The service was great, and it felt like home. Stuffed shrimp, and the catfish...trust me! You will not be sorry!
