Bring The Taste of Traditional Creole Food to Your Community

FRIED CHICKEN: One of the world's FAVORITE FOODS. There is no one dish that is more of a cultural link & part of one generation to the next than the crispy, comforting, soulful glory of FRIED CHICKEN. Our fried chicken immediately delivers a taste of HOME. Our chicken is hand marinated and prepared with precision and with the perfect blend of spice and balance of flavor that every time lifts your taste buds to crave another bite. Another staple of every Creole household is rice & beans. Our red beans are made with smoked pork and a "hock" stock and served over a scoop of rice and prepared with a dash of hot sauce and a hint of cayenne - it's time for some red beans- a bowl of red beans with chunks of smoked sausage served over a scoop of rice. The "perfect" complement to our award winning FRIED CHICKEN!
