“Consistently good thru the decades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

First time here was after Hurr.Katrina--food was GREAT! People were friendly! VERY welcoming place!

Back in 2008--still great, great, great!

Now it's 2013: faces have changed; menu, decor, and Boudreau/Thibodeau jokes have not.

Locals go here: for tourists, there can be no better place to experience real Cajun food and hospitality (unless you are lucky enough to have Cajun friends).

Good for kids, couples, groups, or by your lonesome (Q=Know what the loneliest bayou? A=By you'self!) You won't be 'lonely'--the staff and guests seem to take personal interest in every customer.

And staff genuinely CARE about how you like the food. Too spicey? They'll get you a very bland version. Don't like? They'll find something you DO like. And no one goes away hungry! Portions are generous.

Prices are reasonable. Dress code is casual. Parking is ample. Come early: this place is POPULAR and fills up fast.

“Overpriced and just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The service is spotty and the food is only average.

I didn't care for the gumbo.

I've tried the place on several occasions and have never been that impressed. There are better places in Houma.

“Tourist Trap!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The locals do not eat here! Go to Dave's! Boudreau & Thibodeau's is overpriced and always looking for help. The food is not prepared as good as it should be. Go somewhere else! This is a tourist trap!

“fun local flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

It is a great place if you want some true southern LA fare. We had all the shrimp and crawfish you could eat, with salads, desert and even some beer, at less than $25 each, including the tip!

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It was good the first time, so I had to go back. I received a tasty and generous portion for the price paid. I did not feel cajun that day so I had a hamburger steak. It was a very good choice and left me fully satisfied.
