Best boudin in Opelousas. Many visitors visit this place. A lot of visitors come for the boudin, boudin balls, and cracklins. My relatives make it their business to visit this place before heading back home.

Total hole in the wall place off the beaten path but had a line both inside and out. Tried a sampling of boudin, boudin balls, and cracklins. Hard to beat! Great taste and just right spice.

Whenever we go through Louisiana (from Texas) we stop at various places to get boudin and boudin balls etc to bring back home. My hubby also loves cracklins. This time we checked this place out. Warning this is a hole in the wall type location...More

Leaving New Orleans, i just had to stop in and get me some Boudin here at Billy's. This is the best boudin I've ever had! Surprised to see that they had Boudin Balls! They are great too!
