Good crawfish po-boy, really good fries. Good prices, slow but polite service. Impressive bottled beer selection. JD's IPA is brewed by Two Brothers. Not bad, y'all.

JD's has good BBQ. It is very solid, but not the best out there. They also have a good selection of other meals for the entire family, and beer. Worth a try.
