Boudin King Restaurant, Jennings, La

As the name suggest, The Boudin King Restaurant actually has some really good boudin. The portion size for one link is very generous. I remember staring at the butcher paper at what looked like a medium-sized snake coiled up on my table. It was a tough job but someone had to dig in.

The place apparently started as a neighborhood grocery store that evolved into a restaurant. To get to the restaurant, you will need to turn left as you enter the front door. If you turn to the right, you will see a very large mounted alligator. The gator will not help you order but he is interesting to see.

Customers order at the register and pick up at pick-up counter. The seating and atmosphere is very casual. There is an interesting rifle collection on display in the dining area. I thought was pretty cool. The location is in a residential area about a 2 ½ mile drive from Interstate 10 (exit 84).

One quirky think I found was that it was difficult to find boudin listed on the menu. It was listed on a printed menu on the counter-top by the register. Fried chicken seemed to be a specialty there as well. I can’t comment on the chicken because my mission was to try their boudin.

Mission accomplished!
