The Red Snapper was fresh and crispy, topped with zesty Cajun seasoning. It came with rich sides of choice including mac and cheese, cornbread, and red beans and rice. Above all, the different flavors, smells, and colors fulfilled the senses. To wash it down, a mimosa with a punch.

Shredded ribs covered in barbecue sauce served on sandwich bread. The large side of Cajun fries were warm and appetizing. By contrast, the sweet, cold lemonade was a great addition. As a dessert option, the powdered beignets were very fluffy.

Alone, the fried cabbage had a variety of flavors. Eaten with ribs, the mouthwatering dish drizzled with barbecue sauce was unique. A customer, John Sylva, seemed to think similarly about the food:

“Everything is good here. It reminds me of home cooking in Alabama:

Highlighting black owned restaurants showcases the diversity in Sacramento County. Being one of the few black owned businesses in the area, Cormier shared this advice:
