We were staying close by and saw the reviews, which I am convinced are all submitted by employees. Their version of boudin is an insult to good Cajun boudin, their fried green tomatoes are unlike any found anywhere in the south, and even the grandkids...More

This is a great spot. Recently renovated. The po'boys are good. The shrimp basket is a special favorite of mine.

Boiling Pot is a large restaurant with counter service. Their specialty is good fried seafood, but I had a crab stuffed flounder and it was very good.

I didn't even know this place existed and just happened to see it so figured I would give it a shot. It's a pretty big place. You stand in line, order and pick up the food when your # is called. The dining area has...More

Yes. I hope you found the restaurant. The one on Airport Blvd is MUCH better than the one in Tillmans Corner.
