Fodor's Review

Make this a pit stop for local color and cuisine fished straight from the swamp. Started in the early 1960s as a sandwich stand, this eatery inside an airboat concession storefront has long attracted the famous and the humbly hungry. Washrooms are outside. Besides catfish and shrimp, house specialties are frogs' legs and alligator tail breaded in cornmeal and deep-fried, served with lemon wedges and Tabasco. Sandwich options include burgers, hot dogs, and grilled cheese.
