I have lived in Louisiana and Rendi's mud bugs are better than a lot I've had in Louisiana. Rendi is very accommodating and always serves the freshest crawfish. I eat here as often as I can and am always disappointed when crawfish season is over. If you want great crawfish, this is the place!

Rendi and her Dad have a commitment to quality that is obvious and rare these days. They are also two of the nicest people you will ever encounter in the food service business.

Rendi and Wade (WW) can cook some bugs. I have some clients from lousinana that have grown up with crawfish. They were More Than Impressed. We eat them quite often together. A+++

Great crawfish to go. She has been around for about 12 years or so. I have gotten mud bugs from her for at least the past 4 or 5 years. Awesome people. Good prices, fast service and she will talk and treat you like a friend. Will most defintally be going back.

My husband and I were in Hot Springs on our honeymoon and we spotted this place. We both ordered the crawfish dinners and they were excellent! I love crawfish- it's one of my favorite foods- these crawfish were seasoned perfectly! I wish we had one of these in my town!

The BEST crawfish around. We also have corn, potatoes, sausage and boudin - Our menu is simple and that's why it's soooo GOOD! Only open during crawfish season.
