This little place in Opelousas Louisiana has some of the best, most flavorful boudin around. I have out of town family from Houston, Atlanta, and California and when they visit, they have to stop in for their fix. Very well seasoned and delicious. They also have crackling. Boudin balls, and other seasoned meats for purchase.

Normally when I visit family in the past, Ray's would be close on Sunday's. I was really happy to see they started opening on Sunday until 2:00. The boudin was Ok. A little greasy but still not bad. I like the new ways they start making boudin balls and egg roll style boudin. The thing I truly did not like... More

Stopped in here because I was ahead of schedule on a business trip. The pepper jack boudin balls are excellent! Billy-Rays is famous for the boudin, and they lived up to the hype. Only negative is that I missed it and had to circle back around. Area is a little confusing for traffic.

Always stop here or the other Billys west of Lafayette for boudin balls and some fresh boudin to take home in the ice chest. The boudin balls are the best I ever had.

If you're passing by you have to try to Boudin balls, a type of not-too-spicy sausage mixed with cheese and deep-fried. Just one is perfect!

We always stop by when we pass through Opelousas, LA. We love the boudin balls. We love ones with the pepper jack cheese added, also.

Billy- Ray's is the best boudin in Louisiana. For something tastier, try the pepper jack boudin balls... yummy
