When ever I come into town I HAVE to go eat at Leonard's Their shrimp po-boys are awesome, cracklins are fab and the boudin balls divine! The only thing I could say is that the last time I went the girl behind the counter was surly and copping an attitude. Like she was doing me a favor to take my money and let me wait 20 min THEN tell me that they are all out of the special of the day. Black owned and operated. Great food!
I live in Texas, but my best friend is from Lake Charles. When I visit her I have to go to Leonard's for the cracklin and I always take a pound home with me. But this time I bought friends and they were so nice to let them try boudin. Now my friend from the town always goes to Abe's the big store for the boudin so that's what I'm use to eating. But Leonard's boudin has a better spice and 10 X better than Abe's, the boudin balls are good too. If you're ever in Lake Charles, LA please do yourself a favor and stop by for some cracklin.
You cannot go wrong with a trip to Leonards! They don't serve anything that isn't tasty! The red beans and rice are my favorite but their stuffed potatoes and their po-boys are also wonderful choices...it's a tiny little place and doesn't look like much but, don't let that fool you!
I think Leonards is the best restarant in lake charles. They have the best meatball poboys in town and the best plated food such as the brisket and rice dressing, but their meatball poboys are still the best you can buy.
i believe the food is really good especially the boudin,boudin balls,and gumbo.and for a black brother he has done really good,and have made alot of money,because alot of people go there.also the poboys and potatoes,and alot of people go there for cracklins.
