We stopped here while passing through Shreveport and enjoyed it so much. We each ordered the small (but trust me it was plenty of food) fried fish platter. It had four pieces of fried catfish, Cajun fries, and three hush puppies. The catfish was cooked just right, but the hush puppies were my favorite part. The service was great, and... More

Kids loved the food after I took them back to the hotel, though I must admit I have had much better boudin balls. Poboys were pretty good though, but nothing will ever compare to NOLA's PoBoys in NOLA (sorry, guys). I hope to go back on a better day for me and get one of those crazy large pans of... More

Migraines are no fun, but I'm glad we were able to get you an Advil and a to-go box so quickly. Hope you're feeling better! That aside, I'm glad you enjoyed our take on these classic Cajun and Creole dishes, but I'd love to know more about this. What didn't you like about our Boudin Balls and PoBoys? Let me... More

We visited on 7/17/14. We ordered the shrimp in garlic and butter sauce appetizer and fried shrimp dinner. Both were delicious but the shrimp in garlic and butter were my favorite.

I found this restaurant on trip advisor. Somewhat hesitant to go inside because the parking lot was rather empty on a Thursday night. Yet as we went it staff were very friendly. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, boudin balls, crawfish cornbread and the sampler platter we shared. They give you a generous amount of food and the food was... More

We definitely won't let anyone leave hungry! So glad you gave us a try, Renee, and that you loved our dishes. Those Fried Green Tomatoes are a must for summer! Keep us in mind next time your Cajun craving strikes! Best, Louis, Owner More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Shreveport. We had not been there in over a year when we happened to be passing through while traveling this past weekend. We had been traveling back home in a car for over eight hours and we just wanted to stretch our legs and get something good to eat. Well,... More

It's upsetting to hear this, especially since you've had some great meals with us. As you know, this isn't like us, and I wish that we could have made this right during your visit. No matter how busy we are, we should always be in touch with our customers to make sure they're taken care of while they're waiting, and... More

The food was outstanding with very large portions. Our group had fried catfish, fried oysters, and grilled shrimp. The trimmings that come with the food were great. The service was fantastic and everyone was very friendly. For desert we had bread pudding, carrot cake, and peach cobbler. Also very good. I would highly recommend eating here. We were from out...

My husband and I drove thru on vacation. Last minute decision based on TA reviews... Which when I read the reviews... I kind of expected a bit more.

Sounds like we might have made you a hushpuppy fan! While I'm glad you and your husband enjoyed our dishes, I wish we could have done more to wow you. Your comments about our bathroom and floors are pretty disappointing -- we do our best to stay tidy at all times, so I'll look into this right away. Is that... More
