    We love visiting Fontenot's for lunch and getting a shrimp po'boy and fried green tomatoe po'boy with a basket of fries. The bloody Mary's and gumbo are excellent too! The food is always delcious and we've never been disappointed. Dinner is basically the same menu, but with increased prices, so we usually just come for lunch.
