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. 

Rib Sandwich & Cajun Fries

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:

Briana Pruitt, a student employee, told us about the community projects she’s been part of since working at Louisiana Heaven. She told us about her involvement in the Martin Luther King, Jr. mural project, and how giving free meals to local residents in need impacted the local community in a positive way.
