“Meat pies, bread pudding, and everything in between.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We shared several dishes, including red beans & rice, gumbo, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffee. All were delish! The winners were the mini meat pies and bread pudding. My boys even wanted meat pies again for dessert (before tasting the bread pudding, of course). Kelly was our server and he took good care of us, even though we were in the back room.

“Good, but with one misfire”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

After reading so many positive reviews here, I saved my appetite for a late lunch upon arriving in town for the evening. Arrived at around 3:30PM which put me right between the lunch and dinner crowds, so it was nice and quiet (just a handful of other patrons) but that may have been what caused the misfire. I ordered the Mini Natchitoches Meat Pies for an appetizer, and the Chicken Amulet (stuffed with jalapenos) with Dirty Rice for my entree.

The Meat Pies were excellent, nice and flaky and with tasty filling, and ranch dressing for dipping. The Chicken Amulet entree arrived hot and was also tasty, but the chicken was a bit overcooked and thus a bit dry. Fortunately, the dirty rice was delicious and moist, and I used it to accompany each fork-ful with some of the chicken, which saved the meal.

The proprietor came around to each table to ask how everything was, so I advised him of the above concern, and he seemed genuinely interested and said he would let the kitchen know so that they could work on improvement for "the next time". (I didn't make a huge issue of it as it was not a show-stopper...just a less-than-excellent serving, was all.)

Lori Tate recommended the potato soup and they were out of potato soup but the rest of the meal was excellent and they where fast and accurate with our large group orders.

We ate at Merci Beaucoup twice we were so impressed. The gumbo was great as was the fried shrimp. Good salads and wonderful bread pudding! Their gifts shops were awesome.
