Fodor's Review

This boucaniere (Cajun French for smokehouse) is run by the next generation of the family that operated the iconic Johnson's Grocery in Eunice, LA, 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 sauce); customers sit on the covered porch and dig into boudin sausages, sandwiches, and the heartily recommended barbecue, which is smoked in-house and rubbed with Cajun-style seasonings.
