Don't fall for it. We were searching for a local place to eat and found this via several search engines. This is a glorified convenience store with a food concession.

Stopped for gas and left with a mouthful of crawfish pies and yam cakes. Both very good and unexpected. Also had a pretty good piece of pecan pie. The meat pies looked good as well, but no one was hungry enough to get more food. We will scheudle it on the trip as a stop next time and not eat lunch beforehand. Don't expect a restaurant, this is a gas station with some tables and a kitchen. But, it is good food and the place was clean. There were three local policeman eating there when we pulled through, if that tells you something. Yummy!

This is very near the hotels and highway. The food is very good. We had baked chicken, cabbage and you must try the Louisiana Yam Cake. In fact, I am back home and I am ordering one to be sent here at home. It is a place for gas and other item that make life on the road bearable.

We stopped for lunch on Sun. I decided to try the famed original meat pie. I was not at all impressed, but it was only $1.79, so I was not out much. My husband had the Philly steak sandwich, and he said it was great. I got a cinnamon roll which was very large and yummy. We forgot to try the yam cake.

You won't be sorry for stopping but you will be sorry if you can't or don't get meat pies and yam cake! They are the bomb! French Market is one of out first stops when arriving in Natchitoches and our last stop on our way home. They have such an awesome variety of items in the store but the deli is where the real treat is! We have always had good service here, even when we have to wait for a fresh batch of meat pies to be cooked. The wait is never too long and we can find something to look at while waiting. They have great Cajun cookbooks and a huge selection of spices and seasonings. Any cook can find something different there. They also have one of the biggest jugs of Tabasco sauce we have ever seen! As the saying goes, "you can eat and get gas there"!! Awesome place!
