Trip Advisor didn't let us down. Great potatoes. We got the CCR and it was delicious. They have a kid's menu as well if your kids don't like baked potatoes. Would go back again.

I had the boudin and alligator bites. Both were good, but, the gator bites were like the boudin, with other ingredients. I was expecting gator chunks. May want to clear that up on the menu. Since I had it delivered, not sure about the service,...More

My husband ordered the Philly cheese steak and their was no meat on it. Took it up and talk with the manager and he said he put meat on it and did not offer to fix it. It had way to many mushrooms. No meat....More
