    Eunice Superette & Slaughterhouse

    Just look for the giant cow. That's how you'll find the Eunice Superette, or maybe it's the smell of fresh boudin and cracklin in the air that will lead the way. More than 50 years ago this family owned and operated full-service slaughter house was a small grocer and meat supplier, but these days the superette is Louisiana's largest meat processing facility. Their retail location clearly lives up to that title with all sorts of specialty meats including alligator, stuffed chickens, lamb, tasso, sausage, crawfish tails, bacon, and even "all natural" and "grass-fed" products from local farms. The superette's meats even grabbed the attention of Baton Rouge blogger and Food Network guest star, Jay Ducote. Ducote got to see the processing and butchering first hand and maybe even a giant slab of "Dat Guy's Bacon". Savor the experience yourself; just don't forget to bring an ice chest.

    Boudin King Cake available in season. Call ahead.

    Frank's Poboys

    Known to most Opelousas natives as Frank's Package Liquor Store since the 50's, Frank's Poboys is still home to one really ice-cold beer. Today, Frank's is also serving specialty po'boys in downtown Opelousas. If you're not already familiar with the name, a po'boy is a Louisiana style sandwich stuffed with seafood or deli meats in a loaf of fresh French bread. Some of their signature po'boys include The Cajun Meatball or The Frank's Special, but a good old-fashioned fried oyster po'boy will hit the spot as well!
