Don's has great boudin and cracklins. They constantly have people in and out of the business. I enjoy picking up their speciality meats for cooking.

Since I am your basic Northerner with limited food experiences in Cajun Country my traveling companion suggested we stop. He uncovered that I was unfamiliar with either what a Boudin or a crackilngs were or what they tasted like!! He wouldn't let our journey end without me tasting both. They offered all fresh and he bought some for his family... More

Although the food was not the best the decor made me feel at home. The boudin was not my favorite. Thanks!

The boudin there is the best in the world. You can eat there or buy some meat. It is conveniently located by the interstate.

Stopped in for a snack and wife ordered us a fried pork chop, a couple of boudin balls and a boudin links. It was all so good and pretty much became lunch. In the way home we stopped again and I bought a frozen chicken stuffed with boudin and can't wait to cook it.

My sister Donna and I did a little "road trip" consisting of doing a "boudin trail". Basically stopping at multiple locations that sell boudin/boudin balls and writing reviews on them... so here goes - Stop 1 Dons Speciality Meats in Scott, La My sister Donna and I decided to try the regular Boudin ball first so it would not obstruct...

Great place for Boudin Balls. Never had them until a year ago, then compared them to other places. By far the best in LA. Plenty of other good eats to take home and try. Specialty meats, stuffed meats, sausages, crawfish pies and desserts too. A wide assortment of sauces and other specialty items.

Don's use to be excellent but over time things aren't the same.Plate lunches were huge and filling but like I said smaller plates and food just isn't the same as before when first opened.Use to be so many people there you would have to wait in line and now there isn't much of all at.

Thank Spanaird3333
