Didn't look like much but so glad we went in and ate. I would recommend it to anyone. Very good. Chicken fish shrimp mashed potatoes and gravy biscuits and fried pickles. Nothing disappointed us.

We make a point to stop here every time we pass through, no matter what time it is. This is one of our favorite places to eat. If you haven't tried it, DO!!!! My favorite is the fish, but my husband and daughters love the shrimp. The chicken is also great. Don't miss the fried pickles!!! The seasoning on them... More

We were passing thru and wanted something besides the typical fast food chain. Was def worth the stop good home cooked burgers. Only thing I would say is they shouldn't put seasoning (Tony's) on kids meal fries - I liked taste but too spicy for my kids. Will go again!

haven't tried every item, but really enjoy eating here. Love the homemade taste of their burgers. Gotta try the biscuits! Slurp! Awesome fish and catfish baskets! Enjoy the chicken tenders with the homemade sauce! Rice dressing is awesome! You won't be disappointed. They work fast and hard to serve you, but this place is usually packed, so be prepared to...

This place lived up the reviews! Excellent homemade food. Good sized portions. Try the fresh squeezed lemonade. (They charge $.90 for lemonade refills) Everything we had was excellent from the chicken to the crab burger. Onion rings super yummy. I only wish I lived closer so I could go back again!

Great fried chicken and seafood....shrimp boat is huge! Also great homemade lemonade. Central location in Opelousas, and the staff were very nice. They also do great wing platters which are outstanding for tailgating appetizers.
