One of the greatest surprised of our visit with family in Jennings, LA was Fausto's. It was a 20-25 min ride but worth every minute of it. We had their signature fried chicken and I had the Red Beans and Rice. The chicken was hot...More

A local resident referred us to here. Don't know what the hype is. It was just another fried food joint. We believe WAY over priced and small portions. Moreover, they charge for water. Wouldn't eat here again.

This restaurant was right across for the motel. About half of the people were waiting for take-out though there were quite a few people dining in. Remember - this is not a fast food restaurant... They make the food when you order it. My shrimp...More

The gumbo served here had the texture of soup. The roux, well, someone get them a recipe. The shrimp appeared as though they were found in the frozen food section of miniest shrimp ever. I don't think this "Cajun" restaurant knows or has ever heard...More
