Zydeco Louisiana Diner

This ramshackle, cafeteria-style Cajun place offers a wealth of simple pleasures, among them bacony black-eyed peas, moist cornbread and mashed potatoes yellow with butter. Lunch menu options rotate daily, but other mainstays are available daily. Thumbs up to the shrimp po-boy, with its rowdy mix of tastes and textures. For dessert there is a custard-sauce smothered bread pudding or a slice of chocolate cake to finish your Southern meal.
