Just off I-55 (between the Interstate and Highway 51). We have stopped there three times going or coming from NOLA. Would love to tell you all about the menu, but we just have oysters (raw, fried, scampi, po boy). Simple decor, simple dishes, simply great!...More

Chookies' is an old standard when we can't decide. The food varies from average to great, depending on dish. The fried catfish basket is always great, but the fried oysters have varied from divine to fried-to-death. The hamburgers have always been a dependable fare.

I found this place based on a 'local' referral. They have good food and casual 'mom&pop' atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but good food and good service.

I judge seafood restaurants by their fried shrimp on a bun; their's is great. This is a local diner , not a touristy or high-end dining. It's just excellent food, it's clean, and informal. Really easy to get to from I-55.
