Andouille in Charlotte

Anyone know where to get good andouille in Charlotte? And I mean real andouille, made in Louisiana. Not made in New York City. Am hoping to make gumbo for Christmas Eve. Can't make gumbo w/out andouille.

  1. I'm not sure what "real" andouille from Louisiana is but I use the andouille from Harris Teeter meat counter, it's pretty good. If you belong to Costco they have Amy's brand (I think it's Amy's) that also good. It's made with chicken though so I'm sure it's not the real thing. Hope that helps in a pinch.

    1. Order from They are cheap and shipping cost is fair. I use them for all my cajun/creole cooking needs since I can't be in Louisiana.

      1. In Greenville, SC there is this place:
        The owners are from Louisiana.

        1. You could call Cajun Queen and see if they can point you in the right direction. I'm sure they'd be willing to help. Maybe Reid's Fine Foods or Dean & DeLuca in Phillips Place.

          1. Try Matthews Meat Emporium. I have bought boudin there so they may have andouille.
            Check out the South African shop next door too, leave with a baggie of biltong, you won't regret it.
