Well anything to do w boudin is great. Not always hot but mostly warm - Cracklins are so so - pretty tough everytime I’ve been in SERVICE IS SUPERB!

I went to Ray's on 9-14-18 and purchase some cracklin. One order was $21.32 and the other was $22.60. When I got home I discover I had so much crumbs in the bag. I went there to buy cracklin not crumbs. I call the store...More

Stopped for dinner. Awesome selection. You gotta like fried food 😁. We grabbed 6 crawfish boudin balls for lunch. Scrumptious!! And, we took a couple of 6 packs to be heated up later that evening. Great taste of Cajun country here!!!

Billy-Ray's Boudin is alright. Yet, producing so much of it probably affects the quality. My bag of cracklins had a lot of fat without lean. Maybe this is what the people want, but I find it gross. Yet, going to Billy-Ray's is the first thing...More

This boudin is ALWAYS the same. The right amount of spice, the right texture, a good proportion of rice and meat. The skin is always tender. By far, this is the best buy-in in the south in my opinion.

Delicious boudin, hog cracklings, and other unique goods. You must try everything and don't forget to bring some of the frozen/cooked goods home. You will not be disappointed

Craving some Cajun food on a brief trip to south Louisiana. Grabbed some boudin balls and fried corn on the cob. $11 delicious lunch to go for two can’t be beat!

This was my first experience eating really good pork sausage and dirty rice and I’m sure I’ll be returning.
