Best crawfish ever- they are perfectly seasoned and taste like butter. The prices are the going rate- but the taste is above and beyond! Staff is friendly. This is a very busy place- locals know what's good!

Got a BBQ pork dinner that was a first but not a last. They give you 4 sides and got double rice, potato salad, pork n beans and dinner roll. The BBQ chicken is usually my choice but glad I changed up. Very good quality consistently. The desserts, peach cobbler is so good.

My family went Sunday. It was a real treat. Only open from 10 to 2. Three of us had bbq (one meat and four sides for under $10.00. Not the greatest atmosphere, but the food was great. Very very pleasant family style place.

Crawfish and Louisiana Seafood plus Cajun and just good old Southern Home Cooking. We order our fried turkey for every Thanksgiving here. They truly know what they are doing.

Without a doubt the best crawfish in Lafayette. Usually a tad higher than other places but so worth it. Every crawfish is select sized. Usually the last place to start selling and the first place to stop selling because he won't sell unless they are perfect.

Best crawfish in town- you can order them regular or extra hot- they come with potatoes and corn. Prices vary daily/weekly as crawfish prices go up and down- we found Dwights prices to be competitive.
