We both a shrimp burgers and boudin balls. We loved it all. The best shrimp burgers I've had in a long time and the boudin balls were just so good!

We were roaming around for something to eat and stopped here for appetizers. Gumbo was good but the thing not to miss here is the grilled veggies! Oh my I'm glad we ordered those!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
