    Buras Reviews

    1 review
    In a small town called Buras, the restaurant that i live across the street by has some great food and the employees are very kind. It is an Oyster and Bar restaurant, the owner and his wife are my neighbors. He`s a very generous man that will serve you awesome food. I myself would rate from 1-10, an 8. There`s another shop to purchase food called Maws and it`s located in Boothville, another small town. Overall there are some shops that gives the community a living but mostly we have to drive to "town ", to buy any food and health care products. After the many hurricanes hit us, there isn't any attractions left except the historical place of Fort Jackson.
