Always great, the new place is great adding a lot of seating so more can enjoy their great food. If you are afraid of grits or other unknown creole food give it a try. I'm not a big fish eater or rarely like fish/shrimp mixed with my food but everything I have tried has been great.

The food here is great. The seating is limited and it can get very crowded inside at lunchtime especially with people waiting in line to order or waiting to get a seat. Take out would be a great way to go with this place.

Had a hard time deciding from the menu board and the young boy behind the counter offered a sample of the gumbo broth. It was very tasty and I ordered a small bowl which was enough. My husband ordered the jambalaya which was huge. Very cramped seating but the food was good.

Brought our neighbor's here after telling them how wonderful the food was at the Bozeman Zydecos. No room inside to order up at the register, or to squeeze by the next person in line to get your own drink. We sat at a table outside on a cooler rainy day. The sandwiches were small, plain and dry, couldn't even see... More

Went here with some folks that were from NC and New Zealand. They all thought it was awesome food, and a great price! I love the po-boys and others had various items on the lunch menu. This place is great! The only con is that it seats about 15-20 people, which includes the outdoor patio.

The owners work hard every day, the food is always fresh and good and the place is nice. Just a good home town restaurant. Try it you will not leave hungry and you will definitely want to come back for more.

I ended up going for a late lunch and had my sandwich to-go. I've never really had cajun food so I really don't have anything to compare it to, but I liked the sauce, it was pretty quick to get out to me, and really reasonably priced for what I was getting. I'll probably go back!
