Incredible ‘Po Boys especially the fried oysters available a couple of days a week. Fried pickles are really tasty too. The staff are really helpful and friendly. Get there early to avoid the long lines - really popular with locals .

They have cole slaw which was delicious but definitely has mayo in it! I can’t imagine you wouldn’t be able to get mustard and definitely hot sauce! The catfish was my favorite it’s fresh and cooked perfectly! Good luck
