    Buzzard Billy's: Buzzard Billy's

    by kim83_50158 Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a laid back atmosphere. There are old movie mementos all over the walls. It's fun just to see what is displayed. Since I'm from New Orleans, this was just so much a reminder of 'home'.

    Favorite Dish: It has a lot of Cajun/Creole food. It's delicious!! I had some type of Pasta with spicy sauce. It was so good!
