Had the buffet because I was in a hurry. Dirty rice & baked chicken was very good. Not a big selection on the buffet. Great service and good food.

Absolutely love the daily lunch buffet, everything from Red Beans to Liver to Fried Chicken and more. On Friday's check out the seafood buffet featuring fresh LOUISIANA Fried Shrimp, oh my god to die for, Definitely visit this little hidden gem in St. Bernard Parish.

Their food potions are large. When u order onion rings the pile is high and their even made from scratch. Omelets take up an whole oval plate. All of the time u can make up what omelet or burger you want.
