Rated 5 out of 5 by The food was absolutely fantastic. We weren't the only ones who thought so, they were so swamped that they greens out of greens and brisket just after 12:30. Best southern cooking since I was last in Baton Rouge, Mamou, New Iberia, Lake Charles, and the Sabine Bayou.The service was spot on! The hostess was ebullient and welcoming with a true southern hospitality. The server was friendly, efficient, yet not over attentive.Only thing missing were the green Tabasco peppers (from Avery Island) in the hush puppies and the greens. Feb 22, 2014
