Another cursed spot but I think this venue will break it. It is a branch of a popular place in Lake Charles. Little has been done but I am told a major change is coming down the road. At this point it serves blue-plate specials and a menu direct form the McNeese St establishment.

I got a blue plate special the first time in, Meatballs and Gravy over Rice with Salad, Field Peas, Texas toast and a bite of cake. I sometimes choose meatballs or meatloaf as this can tell me a lot about the cook. These were made of meat with just a little vegetable. They had not been overworked so they were not dense or chewy, just right. Onion type gravy went well with some excellent rice. The field peas seemed to be from a can but doctored. A small lettuce and tomato salad came with a delightful Vidalia onion dressing, sweet and savory. The cake was a German Chocolate sheet cake. I do like a bit of sweet to end a meal.

Next time I started with a Crab and Shrimp Pistolette. Instead of stuffing it into a pistolette and frying it, a fried pistolette was split open and a cheesy concoction of crab and shrimp spooned in, good and spicy. Next came a Seafood Platter. It proved a mixed bag. The onion rings that I had ordered instead of fries were excellent, as were the shrimp. Both the oysters and catfish had trouble keeping their crusts on. While the oyster were cooked the rather thick piece of catfish was not. The stuffed crab proved OK but the stuffed shrimp was exceedingly mushy. The deep fat fried crab cake was more crust than interior. Then I noticed something. All three had been made with some or all surimi (a crab substitute made from pollack)

I tried the boudin balls next, nice flour coating but a bit mushy for my taste. The spice and liver in it saved it. I followed that with a Bacon Cheeseburger with Sweet Potato fries. On a standard bun bottom with mustard came a hand formed patty topped with American cheese, bacon, onion, lettuce and tomato. It was wonderful. Best burger I’ve eaten in awhile. The fries were nice also if under seasoned

On Saturday they serve breakfast. I have a soft spot in my heart for French Toast. They offer that but unfortunately I did not care for their rendition. Too much cinnamon and not enough egg in the custard so the bread fell flat instead of puffing slightly. However the bacon and grits prove excellent. Other plates with eggs on them went by me and they looked fine. It certainly is worth another try.

Last time I opted for Grilled Shrimp and Catfish with mustard greens. All around excellent. . The spice coating lovely and both the shrimp and catfish cooked perfectly with great flavor and moistness. The greens were great also. This one I would go back again for

The service is neighborhood friendly along with the pricing. Nice addition for the Moss Bluff area.
