We stopped in for dinner last Saturday and it was so delicious, as always. Ordered the Shrimp Po Boy with a small bowl of gumbo. It was excellent. The Gumbo is served with a couple of Hush Puppies on the side. Really good. Then we got a small order of Beignets. Melt in your mouth.

Papa Boudreaux's is a nice spot and a comfortable room, with good service, but I have found the food to be a little inconsistent.

I frequent Papa Boudreaux's on a regular basis. Their food is great and tastes Authentic. It's now called Boudreaux Bros and operated by the same people. You'll love it. Check them out.

We had a group of 10 and they suggested we order larger portions of 3 dishes and share them "family style". It was great to taste several things and all were delicious. Price was per person. Highly recommend with a larger group!

I love to have Cajun food here. I enjoyed their restaurant in Fly, TN and the food here at this restaurant in Franklin is just as good. Great service and even greater food.

I'm from Louisiana and know Cajun food....yuck. The gumbo looked like veggie soup. Sorry but very over prices and not true cajun.

Being from the south, I was somewhat disappointed in the food. If you have had a New Orleans Poboy, you know what I mean in taste. Their gumbo & shrimp creole were tasty but not worth the price. The folks are very nice and friendly.

I have to say the shrimp I had was great but that was about it. The young girl that has waited on us twice seems like she just started that day but she has been there a awhile (over a year), they have a limted menu and if you ask for anything they just say no. I have always wanted... More

There are no words for this small eclectic little spot in Downtown Franklin except amazing, exceptional, fabulous, so you get my drift. I love shrimp and grits and these were off the chart. Also had the boudain balls and they were off the chart! Wife had gumbo that was exceptional as well. Seating is limited so come early or late.... More
