We stopped by on way back from vacation. Reviews were good on Tripadvisor. We had shrimp po boys, crawfish po boys, and multiple sides. Sandwiches had a good amount of shrimp and crawfish. The sides were excellent. We will definitely visit again.

Excellent food and service. All of the food was well cooked, fresh and hot. You get great portions for your money. Their spice levels are spot on.

Not sure if this is typical service but the sides were served well before the sandwich. It was as though they were yo be eaten separately. The red beans and rice were very good. Next time I will have a double order.
