Our family legacy was born in 1948 when Agnes and Pat Huval opened their first restaurant in the small town of Henderson, Louisiana. In 1982, the Huval’s daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Ricky Perioux, became the caretakers of the legacy when they built their own restaurant in Lake Charles.

Now a third generation of this long-standing legacy has taken over, as Nancy and Ricky’s son, Nicholas Perioux took over the restaurant to continue serving award-winning Cajun cuisine to the Lake Chalres area.

From a candlelight dinner to a perfect family environment, whether it’s date night, family night, or dinner with friends this is a place all are welcome. Come in today, and experience Cajun food like never before!
