Eat & Drink

Crawfish  From December to June, it's crawfish time and the numerous crawfish huts open their doors and get their burners blazing. Some of these restaurants even have drive-up windows for their “to go” orders of boiled crawfish.

It is also during this time of year that the Lenten season is observed by this predominately Catholic area. For 40 days, many refrain from their favorite food or beverage and followers must abstain from meat on all Friday’s during Lent. 

In earlier times, this was truly a form of penance, and eggs often provided the needed protein in a dish (gumbos or stew with only eggs). Today with the abundance of crawfish and other fresh seafood, it’s definitely more of a treat and less of a sacrifice.

    Frank's Poboys

    Known to most locals as Frank's Package Liquor Store since the 50's, Frank's Poboys is still home to one really ice-cold beer. Save some room for one of their specialty poboys—a Louisiana style sandwich composed of fresh French bread stuffed with typically seafood or deli meats. Some of their more unique poboys include The Cajun Meatball or the Pork-N-Beans, but a good old fashioned, traditional fried oyster poboy will hit the spot as well!
