Opelousas is way under-rates when it comes to Restaurants. This place is incredible. Hard to believe it’s in Opel Seafood A+ If you are a tourist heading down 49 to NOLA do yourself a favor. Stop here

Got the Cajun boy poboy (half size) and it was good. Bread was not too thick as the case sometimes in other restaurants when ordering poyboys. Had grilled onions and peppers inside. Good price for the meal. Fries were decent. Definitely recommend though.
