Place order, sit down and your food is delivered in minutes. Old time restaurant with friendly staff. Good po boys and plate lunches-- Try the red bean or white bean lunch special.

Everyone we talked to recommended this restaurant. I'm glad we listened! Sits on a small corner within walking distance of Old Louisiana State Capitol. Good food, reasonable prices. Good catfish! Check it out! Friends enjoyed the po'boy sandwiches!
