Shrimp creole lunch special to die for. Took half home. Huge portion as for one piece extra of bread to soak up juice. Can’t wait to go back. Armodillo egg okay. Chicken stays moist.

We like giving to Buzzard Billy’s for specific food items and we have never been disappointed. I prefer a buffalo burger and bread pudding for dessert. The buffalo is always cooked to a little less than medium and the taste along with the health benefits...More
