The Best Food You Can Find Anywhere
Of course you didn’t come all the way here just to eat some crawfish – did you?! Or maybe the poboys at the Blue Dog Cafe had your taste buds tingling. There’s just simply no way to get this kind of cooking anywhere else in the world! The best way to find out if you love boudin as much as we do is to visit the Southwest Louisiana Boudin Trail along Interstate 10. There are tons of mom & pop food shops, specialty meats, grocery, and restaurants along the way to wet your alligator’s appetite.
