I went to Sid Williams club in Lafayette. It is the most genuine Zydeco club ever! A must go for music lovers. Sid is a great host and a really nice person. I had a wonderful night. Thank you

Do not go here. This is in a horrible part of town! I have no idea why this is rated #5 or why 3 of the other reviewers say its not.
