If your are in Lake Charles go here for lunch. You will not be disappointed. We had the Surf and Turf and Shrimp Po Boys. The waitress split them for us to each have a half. Excellent. Would have liked to have french fries instead...More

This is pretty much everyone I know's "go to" place. This will ALWAYS be a suggestion when deciding on where to eat! And it's ALWAYS a place we go to with folks that are coming to town to visit! ALWAYS!

I got the special with jalapeno mayo. It was not what I was expecting for the price. It was a half sandwich for $8, which tasted like something I could make. The bread wasn't anything special nor was the meat (no Boar's head like quality)....More
