This is a nice "small group" hangout place. We could talk and visit, eat , drink. The place also seemed fairly clean for a restaurant lounge. I don't like dirty places. overall rating is very good and we will be back.

It's a bar, but the food was great they went out of the box and it works! Boudin Egg Rolls , Crawfish stuffed Pistolette can't wait to try the rest.

Heard food was great... Never ate due to slow unattentive service. Arrived at 8:10 PM on a Tuesday. Placed order and told server we would be outside when food was ready (she did not respond). After 30 minutes I stepped inside to check status. Server made eye contact, then delivered food to table next to ours. I returned to my seat to await her arrival. 10 more minutes passed when daughter and wife expressed hunger and dissatisfaction about no food or status update. I returned to counter where I smiled and asked "Will our order be up soon"? Server replied "Your order will be up right away" and turned away. After returning to outside table in the cold and waiting another 10 minutes (50 minutes since initial order) my wife had enough. She went inside and requested our order cancelled and a refund. Although server said our food was coming soon my wife declined explaining "We have a hungry child and can wait no longer". Server not only became rude but verbally offensive to my wife. She repeatedly offered credentials stating she had a "Masters Degree" and did not want to deal with my wifes request. Although visibly unhappy my wife nothing but proffessional and calm in dealing with the server. Although our cash was finally refunded, our Groupon was also redeemed! I returned the next morning to request credit or use of our Groupon. First, the server saw me get out of my truck and grunted "Oh no"! Next, when I went inside and introduced myself and politely asked to redeem or receive credit the gentelman I believe to be the manager began to rant. He said "We are not McDonalds and do not credit for food regardless of how long service takes"! I again plead my case but could tell the discussion was going nowhere. So I turned and left. Bottom line, If you read this comment I recommend you avoid Boo Koo BBQ. Food is only as good as people reponsible for it. If Boo Koo staff is reflective of their food then avoid at all cost. Visit one of the many other fabulous food establishments this great town has to offer!

You should move out of Finn McCool's and open up your own place!!! That, or tell Finn's to convert to a non-smoking bar.

This restaurant is in the back of an Irish Pub and not what we expected. It was a nice place bot not good for a relaxing lunch.

From Our Editors

Boo Koo BBQ began not as a restaurant but as a sauce. When Lee Mouton’s experiments formulating his own barbecue sauces bred a particularly tasty recipe, he started entering it in competitions on a lark—and winning. Soon, a local shop approached him about selling his sauce in exchange for a bit of cash and a handful of magic beans. He obliged, and as the sauce quickly spread to other area retailers, Mouton also began to create his own food to sell at street festivals. Soon, catering offers started rolling in and Boo Koo BBQ expanded with its own food truck, which prowled the city streets to dispense emergency prescriptions of mouthwatering brisket.

Now a bona fide restaurant, Boo Koo BBQ slathers smoked meats and burgers in the same signature sauce that racked up accolades on the streets. Diners can dig into heaping platters of barbecue, or partake of international dishes with a Cajun accent, including pressed Cajun-Cuban sandwiches, boudin eggrolls, and Cajun banh-mi sandwiches.
