About this Business
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.
