My wife and I went here with my in laws Saturday night, where we destroyed about 15 lbs of crawfish. The food was plenty and delicious, and I would definitely eat there again. Only suggestion for improvement? Have some beers on tap. 5 stars regardless.

Best crawfish ever- they are perfectly seasoned and taste like butter. The prices are the going rate- but the taste is above and beyond! Staff is friendly. This is a very busy place- locals know what's good!

Got a BBQ pork dinner that was a first but not a last. They give you 4 sides and got double rice, potato salad, pork n beans and dinner roll. The BBQ chicken is usually my choice but glad I changed up. Very good quality...More
