Family type restaurant. Good people. Home cooked meals, but also a menu of to order meals. Reasonably priced. Reasonable wait time. Will adjust daily Lunch menu according to personal preference. Worth the stop. Consistency in meals. You'll love the fried pork chops! Too

Known for their plate lunches, make sure to come early to get one before they run out! Barbeque pork steak is always a winner but can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Everything good! We haven't had anything that hasn't been great! So no matter what you order you should be happy! If you want a plate lunch, you better bring your appetite because it their portions are large! Sunday barbecue dinners are awesome! Their soups are delicious! Poboys are great! Again, everything on their menu is great!

I stopped by on a weekday for a plate lunch. I got there just before noon, and I was glad I did; it got quite busy at the noon hour. It is a small diner, so seating is limited. I did notice that they had a lot of take-out. On this day, I had the beef cubes plate, which was... More

Small place, but great food. A favorite with locals at lunchtime. Also very popular for their local meats at the adjacent meat market.

The burger was SUPERB, honestly it was mouth watering! If you find yourself passing through you'd be... More

Kelley's has some the best food in Opelousas. It's a small cafe & while there's not too much to it inside, the food is awesome. The people are very nice & it's very clean. It's a perfect place to pick up lunch. They offer plate lunches, poboys, hamburgers, etc.

They actually have some of the best food in town, and the nicest people there. I'd give them 5 stars if it wasn't that it lacks of a good ventilation system and unless you don't care about smelling like food after... I only go there when I know I won't see anyone else until shower time....
