The menu has nothing but fried foods. Awesome! Everything was delicious. When we finished eating we took a walk over to the Mississippi and it was amazing. Great place to stop for food and stretch your legs.

Attempted to come here a few times, but they close early. Had the chance today so we went and it was really good. The Shrimp Poor Boy was amazing and the fries, i think they were drowning fries were excellent. A great local place, always love to support the local restaurants. The staff was great.

Shrimp and crawfish po boy was fantastic! Huge sandwich stuffed to overflowing with all the fixings. The bonus was that it was located directly across the street from the Hilton.

Great place to eat. Local person told us it is the best food in Baton Rouge. We had Po boys and they were great. Grandson loved the roast beef with gravy. I had a shrimp Po boy. Desserts are homemade and they were also good. This is just a hole in the wall but usually the best places to eat... More

Unfortunately I don't see any reason to return. I had the por boy Hot Roast Beef which is a warm version of cold cut meats from your local deli. There is no value in returning based on the price vs. value received.

The place opens at 7am but the website said 6am. The breakfast was really good and large and at a pretty good price. Next door to the hotel Indigo and Hilton Capitol Center.

My husband is Cajun and in North Carolina where we live he always complains that we never find authentic Cajun food. His one request upon returning to his home state of Louisiana was that we eat authentic Cajun food. This place was amazing. The food was wonderful.
