Been here with several friends and family members--many of which were formally LA locals. The food is excellent and authentic.
Yes, it's a bit on the pricey side, but you get nice size portions. Their poyboy lunch special is a pretty good deal if you live/work in the Leesburg area (I believe its a sandwich, Cajun chips and beignets for under $10 on the weekdays).
I love the shrimp poyboys here, but I have also had the crawfish pie which was fantastic. I HIGHLY recommend the boudin balls as an appetizer (sausage, rice and spices fried into balls), really tasty! Great desserts, too--beignets are smaller than the ones in the french quarter, but taste just as good! It's one of those places that you can always count on for Cajun staples, the menu doesn't change much (if at all) seasonally.
They have a really nice patio with covered tables--been there a few times when they have had live jazz music. Inside the restaurant is pretty small, try and make reservations on a Friday/weekend night. Nearest parking is on the street or in the free garage less than a block away.
Lots of fun--great place to eat and hang out. Did I mention they have Abita beer--even the seasonal ones! Awesome place for those looking for a taste of home--or looking to try something new.
