Drove over to Houma for dinner. The boudin balls were the best we have eaten on the trip!! Recommend. Nice atmosphere, music, narrative and jokes. The gumbo was packed with meat and dark roux, not to my taste. Potato salad was delicious. Catfish with crab...More

Fun servers, delicious food, and be sure to save room for dessert! Their homemade pies are amazing! Their hours are a little weird so may want to call ahead if you are driving far.

Lunch menu changes daily however this is a great place for a home cooked meal. If you stick with the lunch menu you will not go wrong. The desserts are a plus too.

Abears used to be a great place to get Red Brans and Rice with Sausage on Monday's. But, the beans were barely warm and felt and tasted as though they were right out of the can. The sausage was OK. Nothing special!!
