Babineaux in Cajun Country?

brattpowered Aug 7, 2008 07:49 AM

I heard this place is somewhere hidden in Acadiana, and has some great cracklins. I've scoured the internet trying to find where this is but I couldn't. Would someone here be so kind as to give me the address and/or some directions?

    In New Roads there are good ones at Kelley's Specialty Meats. They have many other specialty items that I drive for: smoked chicken - yes, chicken, and I use it in stuffing eggplant amongst other things - sausage, frog legs, boudin, stuffed peppers, gumbo in a freezer bag. Their boudin is my all time favorite. Last time I was there, I heard some talk about them opening a location in Jefferson Parish. For now, they drive to Chalmette on occasion and set up somewhere, not sure where. Maybe I can find out. Another things they sell is brisket and it's also tops.

      Are you sure it wasn't Comeaux's? There are several locations: near the University one street over from Taft St., and way out Ambassador Cafferty by the Settlement. Great boudin (the crawfish boudin is the best) and cracklins also if I recall.

          They used to provide red bousin but I have not tried to get it in years. There is also Webster's in Cecilia. Oddly enough, itis owned by a Huval....

          Best Stop in Scott is good. Don's Specialty Meats in Scott is also worth a stop for lot's of good stuff. Check out The Boudin Link for more ideas - http://www.boudinlink.com/. They've got a great google map that chow hound should emulate.

                There is a Babineaux's slaughter house near here in Breaux Bridge. They also sell their fresh meat, boudin, cracklins, etc.....I think it's even on Babineaux Road. Only one I have ever heard of.
