East Gate is probably one of the best restaurants in Morgan City. The BBQ is constently good. The psycho pig sandwich is on the spicier side but very delicious. If you are wanting BBQ when in Morgan City, give it a try.

We love this little hot spot for BBQ. Small quiet cozy atmosphere and friendly service. Their BBQ is second to none. They have a great menu selection and they make a wide array of their own BBQ sauce in house. Highly recommended for any BBQ...More

Dont look in the kitchen if cleanliness concerns you. Ceiling tiles are all stained up and missing, walls are filthy, food on floor etc....Food is okay but no all that special..I wont go back because of the mediocre food and filthy kitchen.

This little bbq place was such a find! Random stop at 4pm to grab some food while traveling cross country and couldn’t have found a better local restaurant! All homemade, amazing pulled pork and various sauces. The kids working were awesome. Highly recommend.
