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.

Crawfish House is tucked away in the back of a strip mall type area...the food there is very good! Good gumbo, great seafood platter, and crawfish dishes...one of the few good sit down restaurants in Opelousas right now.

The gumbo was out of this world. Spiced just perfectly. The fried green tomatoes topped with the largest lump crab meat were the best I've ever had. There were very generous with the crabmeat and sauce. It's worth a stop off 1-49. You have to...More
