This is the most authentic cajun cuisine this side of N'Oleans. I have spent time eating my way through south Louisiana and this is as good as it gets and closer than Baton Rouge.

I stopped by on a Thursday and it was busy but not packed. I decided on the crawfish enchalidas which had great seasoning and a delicious cheese sauce. Definitely would get that again. They have a zydeco gumbo which is s combo of chicken shrimp and sausage. I will skip lunch next time so I can try this to!

They serve complimentary cold slaw with each order and it is the best I've eaten since Gus Chicken in Memphis several years ago. The meat portions were a little on the small size for the price but everything was top quality and tops in taste.

We came here to eat before a football game. The posted dinner hours began at 5pm but we arrived about 10 minutes before and several others were going inside so we did too. Based on the reviews here, I was excited to eat here. Our server was good. The food was not so good. My husband had the fried catfish... More

You definitely will not be disappointed with the food or service. Ask for the Hank specials, an excellent sampler platter. Great local small business!

Ate last night, my favorite crawfish étouffée, Always good, and spiced just right , Always freshly made for each meal. Last night over dirty rice, with hushpuppies. Accompanied by Abita beer , the craft beer of southern Louisiana, For dessert , the fresh ice box chocolate pie. Absolutely wonderful every time I eat there.

Well I got the new server and so far it sucks. I think a blind 5 yr old could be a better server I've really thinkin about walking out this sucks portions small. Pinewoods at Center Texas blows this place out of the water I won't be back here

Dined here recently and found it to be a good but not great Cajun restaurant. I had the fried crawfish tails and crawfish etoufee. The fried tails were very good, but the etouffe was very thin and had very few crawfish in it. I would return here and try something on the menu. It's not a bad place, just not... More

My family of 5 was looking for somewhere to eat on our way from Ruston La. to canton Tx and we found this gem of a restaurant in Longview. Everyone's food was great! A shame we had to go to Texas to get good Louisiana food!!!
