The bar, Charlie B's, has a great layout which is conducive to meeting people. I had a great time with the locals. Ordering food at the back window (Dino) was easy and delicious. Great Gumbolaya. Definitely happy I spent the better part of an evening...More

It took me a long time to visit this place, largely because I'd heard it was good, but figured that was just because the folks who'd eaten there were drunk at the time!! Not so. I've been here completely sober and food is excellent. You'll...More

The Dino has offered some of the best food in downtown for years...can't go wrong with any menu option! The unorthodox location is part of what makes it great (grab a drink with lunch...why not) and, being married to a cajun, I can say the...More

Cajun style food in a loud, fun & informal grill & bar. All sorts of people from families with infants to college kids dates. Inexpensive food. Enjoyed everything about it.

We love this little food joint in the back of Charlie B's. It's fun to enter through the alley. The food is Cajun and delish! My husband loves the gumbo jambalaya dish, I love the étouffée. Both are served with warm bread. The pictures hanging...More

This place is in the back of Charlie B's bar on Higgens, not far from the old train station. An authentic old time bar that has the authentic "feel" other places try to have. And a cast of true characters up and down the bar,...More
