“My first taste of Cajun; loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

Traveling from our home in New Mexico to Florida, we're not accustomed to rain OR Cajun food.
We pulled off the highway because it was raining so hard, and drove around Crowley to see where to have lunch. (There's a very charming downtown; don't miss it!)
Lots of fast food chains around, but luckily, we wandered in here for lunch. The parking lot was full, and the drive-through line extended out into the street; we figured if it was a favorite with he locals, it was the place to go.
My husband had the combination fish dish; it was all fried. He loved it. He said the stuffed shrimp was wonderful, stuffed with deviled crab. I had the cup of red beans and rice. It came with a link of boudin. It was fantastic! So spicy and rich, the sauce was great. Glad I didn't get the bowl--it would've been way too much to eat.
So, now I know what boudin is, and that this modest looking place is THE place to eat in Crowley!

“Poor, tasteless food, they seem to have gone way downhill if older reviews are correct.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

I had the chicken and sausage gumbo and my wife had the shrimp gumbo. Both were bland and tasteless. The shrimp were mushy. In a town near the center of great Cajun food we felt cheated somehow by having eaten here.

“Best fried catfish in the world!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

We plan our trip so we will have a meal here! The fried catfish is all I ever get but considering they are Cajun cooks everything should be great. The place isn't fancy but very clean.
