. Pretty good Cajun food except for the Gumbo. Looked like gumbo but tasted like watered down soup. Great boudin. Zero atmosphere.

This restaurant is not easy to see going west on US90 to Richmond. It is on the left and recessed just before the bridge leading to downtown. The parking lot is unpaved but ample. The atmosphere is diner like. We had fried catfish and fried shrimp. The sides were dirty rice, salad, cole slaw and fried okra. The highlight was the fried catfish. The coating and seasoning were excellent. The mains are better than the sides but all in all I would recommend this place for a value based tasty meal. Also the service is excellent and the food was delivered very quickly. The price is very fair. This would be a good place for a family wanting a quick and good meal in an informal setting.

You feel like you're part of the family there. The grilled veggies are always a great side dish. The portions are huge, the menu is extensive.

I am generally prefer my fish grilled or blackened but this fried catfish is nice done. They trimmed the blood (black vein) off the back so it does not have the strong fishy taste. My son thinks it tastes fried chicken.

Very basic cooking and you will not find any fancy (ponchatrain, buere blanc, etc...)sauces here.

The Gumbo needs some work. The owner is very friendly and the service is pretty good.

I don't like the fries with the meal. They should just have other options without the additional charge.
