Don't be put off by the building. The crawfish is amazing. If you want to try Louisiana crawfish, this place is it. Friendly staff and quick service. Easy to find and parking is available.

I travel frequently in the Deep South for business and like to take in the local flavor. If you want crawfish this is the place. Don't bother with the previously frozen shrimp, eat the crawfish. I would recommend ordering extra potatoes and corn, you need...More
