Dynamite Food from the Heart of New Orleans

My all-time favorite is the Cochon de Lait Po-boy. Never heard of it? Imagine a warm sub sandwich with bread that is lightly crusty on the outside and soft on the inside, filled with pork that is so juicy and tender that it almost has a buttery flavor to it. Oh man, now you're talkin'! Of... read more

My family lives in the DFW area and I now lived in Florida. There are a couple of decent paths from here to there and back - 1-49 is one of the most direct. After trying a couple of the more prestigious Cajun places in the Lafayette and Lake Pontchartrain areas with mixed results. We decided to give the Lil... More

We had been wanting to stop in here based on there signage, but almost walked out due to the heavy grease in the air. We both chose the special, Shrimp Po-boy with fries for 7.95. The Fries are thick cut and were ok. The "shrimp" was chicken nugget shaped and seemed to be minced balls of shrimp. Mushy texture. Not... More

We went to dinner Monday night the restaurant was not busy. The service however was impeccable. The decor is lovely. The fish was cooked to perfection. Seafood crepes were extremely good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area. The waiter spend a lot of time explaining the dishes. It really helped us to make the best choice.

We were at the Harley dealership in Alexandria La today while they were having a customer appreciation event, they had free hot dogs... not my favorite food! When asked, the clerk told us Lil' Cajun had "bawlz out po'boys"! While admittedly, we didn't know what that meant, she seemed passionate in her response... so off we rode. Lucky us! We... More

The Poboys are awesome as are all the menu items. I have been for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed with the food. If you are in a hurry though, you may want to call ahead. I have never seen more than 2 people working behind the counter even during the busiest times of the day and many... More

In town for work and needed to find a local place for lunch. Lil Cajun House was recommended. Friendly staff and good service. I had the Shrimp Po Boy and cajun fries. The roll was fantastic as well as the shrimp and fries, all fresh and good size portions. A definite plus for lunch in the area.
