They have very delicious seafood omg you have to go and eat at Shucks oysters , Riverfront, Richards Seafood. The best places to eat crawfish is Maxi Mart, Cajun Claws, Stelly Boiling Point. The things that could change are the people hanging on the corner. Don't get me wrong this place is very friendly and has a lot of respect and hospitality.
It's a small, safe community with nice people. It's rather clean and offers many festivals and activities that are great for entertaining friends and family.
