When you see a lot of pickup trucks parked at a restaurant you know the food is good and reasonably priced. Real Cajun food cooked home style.

I love their homemade pies. Especially the coconut cream pie! Gumbo & stews are very good,too. When you are seated, they place a basket of fresh french bread and butter on your table.

Had lunch at Abears. The Crawfish pies were a great start and the shrimp and crabmeat gumbo was delicious. Potato salad was like grandma used to make. Overall a very good lunch. Oh, and the bread pudding was outstanding!
