We were craving poboys, but the offerings on a Sunday were lacking. Decided to give this a shot and it was pretty good. We started off with fried jalapeños and they were HOT! Came out fresh with ranch and cheese sauce. The cheese sauce felt like canned nacho cheese, but we were okay with that. We both got the overstuffed... More

This is one of our favorite places to go for breakfast, and we have been going for years. My favorites are the omelette and grilled biscuits, but it's all very good! I don't know why, but we had never eaten lunch or dinner there until recently. I ordered the hamburger and it was delicious. My husband got the chicken fingers... More

Food is delicious, especially the shrimp po-boy - they give an enormous amount of shrimp - I eat the shrimp and leave the bread. Service is good and fast plus there's good shopping in the travel center connected to the resteraunt.

I had the half and half platter- fried catfish and shrimp... Typical for La. Salad was dumped from a bag. Tartar sauce was not white because it was seasoned with a Cajun seasoning that some will love, but was terrible for my acid reflux. My husband had the shrimp salad that he said was"OK"... My daughter had crawfish fettuccine which... More

It's our usual stop for fried pickles and shrimp po-boys on our way to New Orleans. The prices are reasonably and the staff is wonderful.

I ordered a chicken fried chicken, one coworker ordered a small shrimp poboy, and the other one ordered the red beans. Everything came out quickly and tasted great. The shrimp... More

Came here about 3 am, staff was waiting eagerly to serve me. I wanted to try gator, but $11 scared me a little. So I chose 6inch catfish poboy. It was good, season ok. But I would have wanted a little more spice. Not a place for first date, but if your driving and need a quick bite, then yes.
