Traveled about 1,000 miles, saw a billboard advertising this place. Darn good thing they had that billboard! Great service, fantastic food and reasonably price. Great "cajun" food!

Great Cajun atmosphere. Oyster appetizer is really good. Highly recommended. Ordered shrimp poboy and seafood gumbo. Shrimp poboy was 3 star. Not bad, but shrimp was a bit bland. One thing important to me is shrimp are sourced locally. No Asian shrimp, as most chains serve. Want to see some scary truth, look up some things done with Asian shrimp... More

Picked this place off trip advisor reviews actually, as we were looking for a cajun restaurant that had fish (not just seafood). The food was great, service was great, atmosphere was great.

After reading the reviews, I knew we had to stop here. Boy am I glad we did. Service was fantastic, never once did our drink cups get empty, food was fast and tasted great, and the friendliness of all was very appreciated. Our server Jasmine was delightful. Great place to go.

This is a very relaxed low key place. It's got all these silly jokes about two cajuns whom the restaurant is named after. There seems to be a lot of patrons who come here regularly. It's very busy. There is this huge alligator statue which is popular to take pics with. There are wooden booths to sit in which are... More

Located in Houma Louisiana, this is Cajun Cooking at it best! Ask your server about the boil - tonight's choices were shrimp or crab. I got the shrimp, whole with the head still on and so fresh that is could have been caught this morning, was cooked in a traditional spicy preparation. I added a side for fried fresh okra.... More

An enjoyable evening visiting with my project manager. At the end of the work day we decided to go out to dinner and decided to take a ride to Houma and have dinner at Boudreau and Thibodau's. We had been there once before and truly enjoyed it. Definitely worth the ride from the New Orleans area.
