Thanks to all who reviewed ... used TipAdvisor on the I-10 drive north. Just off the freeway and most definitely worth the stop!

We came here for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. The food was exceedingly delicious. The service was outstanding and friendly. Spent part of the morning sitting under the overhang relaxing and listening to high tempo Cajun music. Will definitely be back, a lot.

Johnson's Boucaniere continues the Johnson family tradition of making Boudin, sausages, and tasso's once sold at the original Johnson's Grocery (since 1937. Add to that outstanding smoked pulled pork, brisket, and chicken and other smoked meats and charcuterie. Wonderful service and quality of food. A must for any Cajun or BBQ foodie.
