Best boudin in Opelousas. Many visitors visit this place. A lot of visitors come for the boudin, boudin balls, and cracklins. My relatives make it their business to visit this place before heading back home.

Leaving New Orleans, i just had to stop in and get me some Boudin here at Billy's. This is the best boudin I've ever had! Surprised to see that they had Boudin Balls! They are great too!

Stopped to get some cracklin for my road trip. The boudin balls and cracklin was very good. I would recommend to others.

Great boudin and cracklings that remind me of my childhood. They offer both salted and seasoned cracklings.
