Yesterday I had lunch there with friends. It is a tiny, walk-up eat-out-on-the-porch sort of place but it has down-home charm. It was very busy at lunch. I had the pulled pork sandwich and cole slaw and others had brisket sandwiches. It was OK but nothing to write home about. I bought several pounds of their homemade sausage to take home and it is great.

These people come from the right place, have the right background, and should know what they're doing, but it doesn't show in the food. Kind of an eclectic little place, down the street from the Cathedral. Sit out on the porch and eat real Cajun food; soak up the atmosphere. Trouble is, it's never worked out that way. I've been walking over for lunch since it opened a few years back. Kept thinking it would come around. Never did. I've given up.

Hard to find little spot, but well worth the search. Order at the indoor counter, eat outside, and you get the most delicious pulled pork sandwich ever. Even the bun was delicious. They really know how to cook.

There are no shortcuts taken with their food and it shows. Great sausage and barbecue and everthing is first quality. It is nice to eat where there are no surprises!

Hidden away near downtown Lafayette but worth finding. Home made food and friendly service.
