Great local atmosphere - been here since the 50s (or maybe before). All great and authentic Louisiana food - if your first time, you must try their famous "Shrimp Buster" - big Louisiana shrimp butterfly and fried with special sauce.

The shrimp buster is incredible, their gumbo is delicious, and their hamburgers are pretty good too. A truly legendary Louisiana hole-in-the-wall institution. Their gumbo is on par with anyone in South Louisiana.

If you have never been, go. But, that being said, it is not someplace I'm dying to go back to. The place has a lot of character. The fried shrimp are their specialty. The shrimp we're good but needed some seasoning.

Went here on a quick lunch trip. The Shrimp Buster sandwich is still a great classic and great tasting!
