Johnson's Boucaniere

Johnson's Boucaniere Review

This boucaniere (Cajun French for smokehouse) is run by the next generation of the same family that operated the iconic Johnson's Grocery, which closed in 2005. It's a laid-back, friendly place with a refreshing blend of tradition and modern style. Music from young local bands plays over the sound system (their CDs line the shelves next to barbecue sauces for sale); customers sit on the covered porch and dig into boudin, sandwiches, and the heartily recommended barbecue, which is smoked in-house and rubbed with Cajun-style seasonings.
