Delicious Ribeye

We stopped for lunch. The special was a 10 oz ribeye for $11.99! It was a little undercooked, but they happily put it on the grill. It was very tasty. It came with a salad and the choice of a side. The sweet potatoes were a bit limp, but still good. Anything lacking in the meal was made up... read more

We ate there tonight for supper. I had the vegetable soup. My wife had the chicken and sausage gumbo. My daughter had a oyster po-boy. My soup had no flavor at all. Pitt Grill in Iowa has great vegetable soup. My wife said her gumbo was not good. My daughter had to change her oyster po-boy to a shrimp po-boy... More

This restaurant is located in a busy truck stop. They have a good menu with a some very good dishes. They even have a children menu. The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. The service was friendly and fast. There is also a very good gift section in the store area. Not the junk you normally... More

Bourbon Street is known by the locals for being a nice, reasonably priced place to eat. Many choose their shrimp po-boys.

Great food &a lot of food for the price. Thursday is steak day/night 10oz-ribeye $10.95. Don't order a large shrimp poboy unless you are really hungry.

For a truck stop restaurant, I was fairly impressed, but it's an okay restaurant overall. I got food there twice (the shrimp poboy and a bacon cheeseburger) and it was good, but overall forgettable. The first time service was kind of shoddy (it took awhile for them to take my order, but when they did, it came out lightning quick),... More

Located in the "Jennings Truck Plaza" at the Shop Rite service station on the east side of Hwy. 27 just south of I-10. One breakfast meal of an omelet was very good. One evening meal of oyster po' boy and sweet potato fries was good. The place was clean and service was quick and friendly. T There was a good... More

This came highly recommended from the hotel staff across the street. The wait staff were friendly, but the dining room was unclean. Ultimately the food was terrible. I had gumbo, which was recommended by my hotel staff and was a huge disappointment. I also allowed myself to be seduced by the fried pickles which were OK, but the flavor did... More

Enjoyed shrimp poboys and fries on this stop. Quick and hot food except for onion rings that one of our party ordered-they were cold. This bread was not a crispy French bread but more of a soft sandwich roll. Shrimp were plentiful and tasty. Would stop by again and order the same. Connects with service station store. Restrooms were clean.

The reviews are right. This is in a truck stop - BUT the food is good, honest and fairly priced. Even though most recommend the shrimp poor boy, I had the oyster poor boyand onion rings. The oysters were plentiful. They were not heavily breaded and they were very good. the sandwich was A+ as were the onion rings. I... More
