Worst service EVER!

This is the first review I have ever written, if that will tell you how bad the service was that I came back and searched to write a review asap. My table was seated right away, no wait... then the waiting and waiting began... we ordered our food (lunch sandwiches) and we did not receive the food for 1 hour.

Buzzard Billy's looks like a bar at first glance, but has amazing food. If you like authentic, spicy cajun - give it a try. There are even a few less-spicy dishes for the less adventurous. Reasonable prices, too.
