Fodor's Review

LaPlace is known as the andouille capital of the world, and the spicy, smoky, Cajun-style sausage is deservedly popular here. In this butcher shop that doubles as a functional, straightforward restaurant, you can get andouille in burgers, in gumbo, made into chips for dipping, or worked into white beans and rice. A jazz brunch on Sunday expands the offerings to include omelets, pancakes, and other comforting fare. Although reservations aren't mandatory here, they are a

good idea.

Not Your Typical Mom & Pop

This retail smokehouse has some of the best Andouille Sausage ever tasted. Hard smoked & spicy. Recently traveled to New Orleans, and toured Plantations along River Road. Was not only impressed by the smokehouse offerings of Andouille, Smoked Sausage, and smoked Dog Bones, but throughly enjoyed brunch.
