Overall Flavor: PORKTASTIC!! The porky punch packed into this perfect piece of boudin is pure pleasure. It is hearty. It is satisfying. It is great.
Comments: This is my new favorite stop as I travel West along I-10. Great food. Nice people. Locals atmosphere. What more could you want? Oh, and the boudin ball was fantastic!
