Came for lunch, happened on the alligator po boy special. Was great! Bread is fresh, gator was exceptional. This Texas boy was impressed. No credit cards accepted, but do have an atm available. Quaint seating but outside seating was bearable today.

Couldn't even try this place. It's cash only which you don't learn until you've already ordered and go to pay. Absolutely a deal killer on a business trip. I guess they survive just fine on local's business.
