This buffet-style, Cajun restaurant is located in Evangeline Downs Racetrack & Casino, a gaming and entertainment facility in Opelousas. Sample traditional Cajun dishes like gumbo and étouffée and a large variety of other homecooked meals. Friday evenings enjoy the steak and shrimp buffet, while on Saturday nights the buffet is serving prime rib!
