Roanoke Full Stop in Roanoke, LA = A- Rated Boudin

Roanoke_Boudin5

The Roanoke Full Stop.  It is only about a mile off the Interstate and it is well worth the detour.

Ambiance: Quite a nice setting. Drive about a mile off the Interstate and this gas station/store awaits. Located on a corner lot overlooking rice fields, the setting is pleasant and calming.

Location: 14010 Highway 395, Roanoke LA 70581

Lots of metal around this link.

Casing: A bit chewy.

Meat/Rice Ratio: More rice than meat. Meat still plays an integral role in this link and the hearty chunks of meat are particularly appealing.

Texture: Moist and delicious. The feathery rice comes with both whole grains and grains that have been cut.

Spice: Medium/mild.

Overall Flavor: Scrumptious. There is a strong parsley component here, but it comes from fresh parsley and it is not overpowering. Plenty of onion and peppers round out this link and ensure that it has a great flavor punch.

They have good cracklin too.

Comments: An unexpectedly tasty link in a place that deserves your attention. Next time you’re driving between Lake Charles and Lafayette go ahead and get off the highway to give the link at the Roanoke Full Stop a try..
