Anyone familiar w both Breaux Bridge AND Houma

Going on a big long road trip that will take me through Breaux Bridge LA for some cajun food. I have a very flexible schedule, and a moderately flexible belly. Places I have noted to try include (cut and pasted from my itinerary):
Nash’s for turtle soup
*Poor Boy'Riverside Inn – Duck and Andoullie gumbo
Pat's Waterfront Restaurant – Crawfish ettoufe
Soops Restaurant – seafood gumbo
Poches
Jubans (fancy) Baton Rouge
PreJeans (Lafayette)
Café des Amis

After continuing on to TX I will loop back towards Atlanta (where I live). I kind of randomly looked into Houma as a possible stop and was surprised to see how big of a town it is, chock full of restaurant such as Melvins, Big Als, Spahrs (wild catfish), and Pit Stop for Beignets.

I may grow weary from too much Cajun though and am wondering if a stop in Houma would just be redundant. Or, alternatively, if some of what I have on my visit to Breaux Bridge will seem like just more of the same after the first 2 or 3 restaurants. Truth be told, I probably WILL get tired of Cajun food after a few days and might not want to hit everything on that list so probably best to do the best ones first (assuming I will skip some others). So anyway, just wondering if anyone has experience in both places and feel that some of these are must visits while others are less essential.

Thanks
Dave
