Went there for lunch on a Saturday. Had the ribs and boudin. Both were really good. No tables inside set at picnic tables on the porch. There is no a lot of tables. It is worth the effort. .

Johnson's Boucaniere continues the Johnson family tradition of making Boudin, sausages, and tasso's once sold at the original Johnson's Grocery (since 1937. Add to that outstanding smoked pulled pork, brisket, and chicken and other smoked meats and charcuterie. Wonderful service and quality of food. A must for any Cajun or BBQ foodie.
