Over the years I've visited El Sid O's at least a dozen times. We travel 350 miles from San Antonio to enjoy authentic south Louisiana music, and we can always count on a great time here. We've never had a single problem.

My experience about visiting a venu with an obviously different culture than your own, is that folks are proud that you have come to visit and treat you very well.

I would definitely recommend this unique experience to anyone who loves music.

The bar/club is located in a dangerous section of town. Please use caution anywhere near this location.

Why would we have a ghetto club on this list? If you are visiting Lafayette don't go out here. Bad area of town and all they play over here is zydeco music. Place always has suspect characters.

It is unfortunate that some of the reviewers of this club focus on the neighborhood instead of the music and the people. If you want to find authentic roots music in the United States, you have to go where people live. El Sido's is a classic and one of the few traditional Zydeco roadhouses left in Louisiana. I suspect you will feel welcome there no matter where you are "from".

Do not go here. This is in a horrible part of town! I have no idea why this is rated #5 or why 3 of the other reviewers say its not.

I can't comment about the neighbourhood - we were dropped off at the door and picked up from there.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the music was authentic and incredible. The music didn't start until after 10.00 pm but it was well worth the wait. Probably not recommended for family groups.

I went to Sid Williams club in Lafayette. It is the most genuine Zydeco club ever! A must go for music lovers. Sid is a great host and a really nice person. I had a wonderful night. Thank you
