If you are from the south (or not) you will love the fact that they have alligator, and crawfish!! Plus the hush puppies are the best! You must love spicy things cause it has that Louisiana kick!!!

Visiting La Crosse for first time. Came to Buzzard Billy's with the wife and we were both very impressed. One of our best meals on the trip. Would certainly come back.
