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 Opelousas natives as Frank's Package Liquor Store since the 50's, Frank's Poboys is still home to one really ice-cold beer. Today, Frank's is also serving specialty po'boys in downtown Opelousas. If you're not already familiar with the name, a po'boy is a Louisiana style sandwich stuffed with seafood or deli meats in a loaf of fresh French bread. Some of their signature po'boys include The Cajun Meatball or The Frank's Special, but a good old-fashioned fried oyster po'boy will hit the spot as well!

    Mo' Crawfish

    Mo' Crawfish is family owned seafood restaurant serving boiled crabs, crawfish, and shrimp in a small community called Mowata located near the town of Eunice, Louisiana. The drive out to Mowata on the old Crowley Eunice Highway is magnificent. Often you'll see bright red crawfish traps bobbing on the tops of ponds and native birds flying over the water's surface.

Michael and Katherine Hundley, along with their six sons and two daughters, own and operate the family restaurant which is open seasonally, typically January through July.

    The Little Big Cup

    Spend time with locals on the banks of Bayou Fuselier at the Little Big Cup in Arnaudville. This fine-dining restaurant feels more like the home of an old friend, one with excellent taste and a scenic view of the bayou, likely due to the owners Kevin Robin and Sanjay Maharaj. The two New Yorkers moved back to Robin's hometown, Arnaudville, and opened the restaurant in 2012. Since then the restaurant has created a buzz on the bayou with dishes like Praline Chicken or the popular Boucherie Brunch Buffet items. Their "A+" reputation isn't solely about the food but the wait staff's kindness and southern hospitality. 

    The Little Big Cup specializes in Cajun and Creole dishes but Wednesday nights are now reserved for the cuisine of the Caribbean, a tribute to the owner's heritage, Sanjay, who is originally from Trinidad. Each week the restaurant will explore new flavors, spices, and dishes from a different island. 

    Ask about catering services for any size group.
