Stopped in for a late afternoon lunch while traveling based on trip advisor's ratings. Friendly casual atmosphere, we both ordered red beans and rice with sausage and a side of cornbread. It was good :)

I had the sampler trio, which was seafood gumbo, shrimp creole , and crawfish etoufee . The crawfish etoufee was the best ! Served with French bread, and sweet tea . Yum-yum !

The place stays packed and we can see why. Their red beans and rice was great.........and a lot of it. You can't beat their Jambolaya either.........straight from NOLA.
