Craving some Cajun food on a brief trip to south Louisiana. Grabbed some boudin balls and fried corn on the cob. $11 delicious lunch to go for two can’t be beat!

This was my first experience eating really good pork sausage and dirty rice and I’m sure I’ll be returning.

Whether I make a special trip or I'm just passing through, I gotta get some smoked boudin. I grew up on this stuff. I'm never disappointed unless they don't have any.

I've been stopping by this store in Opelousas for years. I travel through Opelousas on a regular basis and usually stop here for cracklins, boudin balls and boudin balls stuffed with cheese. The price has continued to rise and the quality has continually gone down....More

I am from this area. When Billy's went solo and no longer served Ray's boudin is the moment that I lost interest. Billy's boudin is edible, but not in the top 20 stops for good boudin in South Louisiana. Not much Cajun seasoning or flavor....More

Best boudin in Opelousas. Many visitors visit this place. A lot of visitors come for the boudin, boudin balls, and cracklins. My relatives make it their business to visit this place before heading back home.
