I have tried to get food here several times and it was closed. I drove 10 miles each way. What a waste of time. The one time I did eat there it was pretty good. Loved the boudin! Can't get it anywhere around here.

We ordered some carryout BBQ from there last night. The brisket and pork sandwiches are large as is the side. They serve for different saucesthat are good. The ribs were large and more than enough for one person.

We passed by this place and thought - Is that a renovated gas station selling food?" Yes, It is. That alone would make me want to try it. We talked to a few people at our hotel and they all said that they had heard...More
