"The Original" Catfish Chips: Spahr’s Seafood Restaurant was founded in 1968 on the outskirts of New Orleans in the small fishing community of Des Allemands. The surrounding bayous provided the seafood that founder Bill Spahr used to develop Spahr’s Seafood Restaurant into an icon in southern Louisiana. Still locally owned and operated by family and friends Spahr’s Seafood Restaurant strives to use the freshest local seafood and serve our guests with genuine southern hospitality.
L and J Café. 1927 marked the opening of Tony’s Place now known as L and J Cafe. Supposedly, bootlegging was popular at Tony’s as well as Juanita’s (Tony’s wife) famous cooking. It was said that the cavalry stationed at Fort Bliss were regulars. The soldiers even trained a mule to travel the path from Fort Bliss to Tony’s and back. The mule carried bartering items in its saddle bags in exchange for the precious commodity of home brew. Today, you'll find friendly service and great food.
