Walk to the counter and order your food and they will bring it to you. This is no fancy joint but the food was good!! I ordered a chef salad. The salad was so big. It did have a lot of lettuce but plenty of meat and cheese and a boiled egg! I couldn't eat it all. They have plate... More

Limited menu, very good food & service. We had hamburger steak, fried fish & gumbo. Hamburger steak & fried fish were very good, gumbo was okay.

Plate lunches Monday through Friday featuring home cooked delights. We visited them on a Saturday and the choice of a 1:2 lb burger, seafood pboys, and salads. Everything was excellent! They are a bit tricky to find in the downtown area, but well worth the stop.

Very good service and the food is amazing. The menu was poyboys and burgers. It was very hard to choose from! Kensie was our waitress and she was excellent. We... More

A really homey place. You can ask the cook where the beans come from and really get an answer. The plate lunch each day is a good value with lots of local traffic. Given that this is an in town location not on the drag that is a complement in itself. Good food for a fair price....

good plate lunches. Drive through window is my favorite. Good eating! Courteous staff. Food portions more than adequate for a hungry man.

There was not much ambience. You had to know that you have to go to the counter to order from the menu lying there. My husband said the cat fish was good. The salad was iceberg lettuce with ranch. There was nothing vegetarian on the menu. They made me a cheese "Po Boy" and it was good. It was on... More

This can't be south Louisiana. Somehow, I've wandered far away, maybe Nebraska or South Dakota. The last I knew, I was in Jennings, Louisiana, looking for lunch. I stopped down the street from a little nondescript building, with a bunch of cars outside, and when I went inside, there were some people who were obviously locals. There was a lunch... More
