I can't wait to try the fried oyster poor boys, the red beans and rice and the cajun jambalaya that are also on the menu. It’s a small place, maybe 8 tables inside and 4 outside. You order at the counter and then they bring you your food. It’s only open Monday to Friday from 11am to 7pm. Very Highly Recommended–(I’m goping back!)
