Excellent gumbo and jambalaya. Service was impeccable and dinning room very clean!
Good food, huge portions
Pastalya is awesome
Lunch special is a lot of good food. Jambalaya and gumbo were both tasty.
Best place to get jambalaya or pastalya other than your uncle's house
Great food and service, chicken and sausage gumbo that reminds me of the way my grandmother made it. Jambalaya is amazing.
Excellent service and amazing food!
Just amazing! Love this place so much! The prices are not bad at all. For a family of 4 you can 2 meal deals and food left over. Such a great place!!!
Good food and even better customer service!
Love the pot roast over jambalaya.
Great food and a great value. Really nice staff.
Eat there at least 1 every other week try there daily special it is spicy and good
I LOVE the pastalaya here! The service is fast and friendly.
Home cooked delicious food!
Delicious, super size portions. My husband and I ordered each a dinner and we could shared 1 dinner.
A GREAT PLACE friendly good food easy to park with Trailer
Pork roast special was awesome! Lots of food for the price. Definitely a meal for two or leftovers.
Really good jambalaya at a reasonable price
There have been a couple of times we have come here towards the end of the day and it hasn’t been very good. So I recommend coming early in the day when the food is fresh and warm. I like the rewards stamp card thing that they have. It’s a cool thing to look forward to. Anytime you order anything, it’s definitely a large portion. My husband and I will usually split the meal deal. More...
Awesome food very friendly
Love the special, but the meal deal is incredible
Very good food and friendly service.
Excellent for catering for large parties!!! Highly recommend!
Love the Friday special
The gumbo is awesome
Good food at a fair price.Pork roast is awesome!
Meal deal $10! Pastalaya, mac n cheese, corn, gumbo, and a roll.
Visiting from Texas and Pot & Paddle fixed the craving! Highly recommend. You can write a thanks later More...
Easy way to enjoy great Cajun food for dinner without having to do it yourself. Portions are huge and the staff is exceptional! Good to pick up for game time or when you don’t have time to make a meal. More...
Food never ceases to amaze us
This place is awesome Gonzales & Juban Rd.
Great food! Great service! Small menu red beans and rice which I normally do not like from a restaurant but theirs is great! jambalaya or pork roast. Macaroni and cheese to die for. Customer for life at this point. Good prices. Huge helpings. More...
Finally had a chance to try this place out and it was awesome! Portion sizes were huge and was hands down the best pastalaya I've ever had. Service was solid. Will be going back to try some of their daily lunch specials. Looks to be a great and easy option for catering and to feed a large group of friends and family for an effortless meal at a very affordable price. More...
Nice and friendly service
It was good i would go back it was nice and clean and employees were friendly but I just felt it was a little Bland not like some of the other Cajun food places I've eaten and had their jambalaya which was bursting with flavor other than that i can not complain
Good jambalaya and cole slaw. Ample portions.
Good food nice employees
Delicious as always! Courteous staff and affordable prices.
Always good service and food
Looooove this place
Sooooo much food for the price! Excellent
Great lunch special
The chicken and sausage gumbo was delicious!
I ordered through waitr, so my experience was purely based on the food.
Kimberly Fontenot Menard
Best gumbo around!!!!! Fantastic service as well!
The food is at a reasonable price,gumbo is not high on the sodium.But over all is really good.
YOLO#L.O.A. 528 / 7.83
Awesome food and a lot of it
Always great food!!
Large portions, great gumbo.
It was delicious, well seasoned, and a very large serving and when I am in that area I will stop in and get some more and complements to the cooks
Really good food as always!
Food was good, but the portions are way too big. They should warn you how big the small portions are.
I know it looks basic but this jumbalaya is seriously . Really tasty food. The restaurant is right off the interstate and the prices are great. Wins all around.
Very good gumbo and the best potato salad anywhere
Good food and good service
What the lunch special gumbo and jambalaya
Chris St. Romain
Large portions. Pastalaya was great. The sides are on spot-just right. I will be back when I'm in the area
Mandi Vierck Hebert
My Dad was in town visiting and I was looking for a family meal with Cajun flair. We really enjoyed the jambalaya meal with white beans. It was very flavorful and had some spice. I added some salad, as well. The website said it feeds 5-7 and it was plenty for our crew of 3 adults and 2 kids. We have enough for supper this evening. Great value for the amount of food we received. More...
Good food and great service
Consistently good food. Friendly, bright employee working the register is also a plus.
Worth the drive from wherever you are. Everything is great and the portions are big enough for two people!
The World of Oceanblue Art
Excellent jambalaya, big portions and very fast service. Whenever we drive through Denham Springs on our way home to Lake Charles we stop by here for lunch.
Ordered 3 buckets of Gumbo, rice, and potato salad. The staff went over and beyond to get my order perfect and on time. We found the gumbo better than most restaurants ( Not too salty, good meat to liquid ratio ). I rather cook my own, but this is an excellent substitute when I can't. More...
Excellent Awesome gumbo Chicken and sausage
April Renee Maness
If you're in the mood for gumbo but dont have time or not up to cooking your own Pot and Paddle's gumbo is a GREAT substitute! Even better you can order it through Waitr so you won't even have to leave the house. Everyone who knows me know I'm a very tough gumbo critic and I couldn't get enough of their chicken and sausage! More...
Chicken stew is great
Nicole L. Falgout
We always order through waitr and the gumbo has always been excellent. It’s definitely as good if not better than what we would make at home. Makes the perfect fall/ winter meal when we just don’t feel like cooking!! Just finished my bowl and decided to leave a review! More...
Christopher W. Sanders
Great food and service. Highly recommend.
Great food. I just wish you had the option to choose smaller portions.
Awesome food great service n price n
Great prices - Feeds Two Box mixed feeds a family of three. Yummy
Only there 5 minutes order was hot and ready
Good and plentyWe stumbled on Pot and Paddle in Denham Springs as we were detoured off the interstate in Louisiana. Visiting mid afternoon, the restaurant looked deserted— not what you want in a restaurant! We ordered a pork and sausage jambalaya dinner (served with two sides) and a chicken and sausage gumbo. For under $20, we had created a virtual all-you-can-eat buffet of South Louisiana goodness. Our jambalaya plate included a serving of 2+ cups of well-seasoned sausage and pork with soft, smokey browned rice. The gumbo was rich and thick with chicken and sausage, with that deep roux-based flavor that makes Louisiana foods famous. We left filled, and with left overs. For us, a wonderful unexpected find and great lunch. More...
Friendly staff and good food. Just need to maybe lay off the salt a bit!! What we picked up this afternoon was overly salty.
The Mac and cheese is amazing plus their potatoes salad is so good! The jambalaya and Gumbo was good too! The service was great. And some people don’t know but if you walk in and no ones at the counter, there’s a little bell you can hit to let them know someone’s up front. More...
Amazing Food, Amazing Staff .. Love the Gumbo and potato salad
Great food and service.
So much food at a cheap price ... only $10 for jambalaya, gumbo , 2 sides , and a roll .... can't finish it all at once so u basically got lunch and dinner or u could share it , it's definitely enough for two ppl..plus it tastes so good
I love the gumbo
I ordered gumbo and it was good. Hubs got jambalaya which I think kinda bland and not hot when it came out. I'll stick to gumbo for the next visit. Forgot to take pics tho!
They never disappoint! Highly recommend!
Great customer service, food is great, prices are really good
There food is always hot, and they have very quick service! Love this place!
Quality food, friendly and quick service! Try the Gumbo!!!!
Split a serving of jambalaya
The best... Had to take another bite the best jambalaya ever!!
Most folks who cook are picky about eating someone else's gumbo and jambalaya. I'm one of those folks. But I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy the gumbo and jambalaya from Pot and Paddle. The potato salad and other sides are very good as well. Unless you have a big appetite, the portions are enough to share or take home for another meal!I think they get overlooked for the other eateries in the area, but definitely give them a try! More...
Chicken gumbo is great. Jambalaya could use onions, garlic and more meat for the price.
Very large servings and food is great!
Food was ok...
Really liked the gumbo. Best I ever had
Enjoyed food from “Pot and Paddle” at a Birthday Party in Sorrento! Fresh and VERY DELICIOUS!!! Their Gumbo, Jambalaya, and potato salad is the BEST I’ve ever had!
Rachel Comoletti Swan
That Mac & Cheese Y'all!! The jambalaya and fettuccine sooo good too!! It's perfect for a quick dinner pick up for the fam!! I highly recommend them!!
We had the jambalaya today and it was delicious. We also had the mac and cheese as a side and it was good as well. Portion was great for the price! We will be back again.
I had the $10 meal which consists of gumbo, pastalaya, and 2 sides (mac n cheese and corn)! It came with so much wonderful food, I was able to eat off of it 3 times! I can't wait to take my boyfriend there! More...
its a great place to eat great service and the food is assume you will be surprise on the amount u get for the price best deal in town
Kelley Anne Powers
LOVED the jambalaya ! Seasoned but not spicy . I also had the potato salad and I am SUPER picky with potato salad and was a little nervous when I ordered , but it did it disappoint! Will definitely be going back �
Traci Gremillion Pécot
We ordered jambalaya, shrimp fettuccini (so so good) and gumbo. I'd definitely order it again. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the coleslaw but the rest more than made up for it!
Colleen Fournier Narido
Was so good! Fed my whole family who also thought it was delicious!
David A Landry
Yesterday, after a long day at the new build my wife and I were going back home in Laf. and we didn't have a clue as to what we were going to do for dinner.
I called her and said I would go down the street to Pot and Paddle to pick something up she said that would be great beings I have been wanting to try out the food there.
Well let me tell y'all sha, I ordered a dinner plate of jambalaya and a dinner plate of Red beans and rice, it was excellent y'all!!! The servings were large and the sides were delicious as well. There was enough for dinner last night and I will eat the left overs for dinner tonight as well. Mmmmm GOOD Yeah!!!
Y'all go git you some, you will not be disappointed, I guaranty!!!
P.S. I all most forgot, the price is very reasonable. For all that food at the cost of a fast food burgers and fries, can't be beat!!! More...
I first had Pot & Paddle when they first opened- the owners were kind in bringing over samples for my staff & I, and everything they brought over was delicious. I try to not eat out often for lunch (saving $ where I can), but today I decided to treat myself to gumbo & trimmings because of the rain. Sarah (employee) has recommended multiple menu items, including their gumbo (and I'm glad she did!) The gumbo was not what I'm used to- it's lighter than the dark gumbo I grew up loving. But, I found it to be a great lunch choice for that specific reason- it was delicious without being too heavy! Super friendly staff, clean restaurant, and good food at a reasonable cost. Can't ask for much more, can we? � More...
We had a work luncheon with jambalaya, fettuccine & gumbo. The jambalaya was flavorful. The gumbo was hardy. The fettuccine was delicious. Thank you!
Ordered today for lunch through Waitr. I got the chicken and sausage jambalaya with corn and mac & cheese. EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING! The corn was actually my favorite. It was delicious! Please try this place! More...
Erin J Morgan
My son asked for gumbo, so I dediced to search Waitr, and found Pot & Paddle. Great gumbo, we were both impressed, will definitely pass the word along!
I needed to feed around 10 guys today for a safety training and decided to try this out. I have to say, it was FANTASTIC!!
The jambalaya is exactly how my grandmother makes hers and hers is award winning in my book. We chose the catering package which included everything we needed: plates, utensils & even serving spoons.
We got the Jambalaya, green beans, green salad and rolls. Must try those green beans!!
Highly recommend this restaurant More...
The shrimp stew was good enough for me to bring visitors from out of town to eat.
Super repsonse/turnaround time, authentic food quality, generous portions, and fair prices.
I also loved that the owner and staff checked in on us repeatedly.
It will NOT be my last time. Much to try there! More...
I surprised my mother with their gumbo tonight and her response was great "it's just like our family gumbo!" 5 stars all the way! Friendly staff too...oh and they have good cookies too! Do yourself a favor while the weather's still cold and go get you a bowl or two bruh! ��� More...
Nicole Davis DesOrmeaux
I ordered catering for a reception last night and it was so delicious! Everyone loved the jambalaya, mac and cheese and green beans. Great food for a great price. I order a lot of food for catering and plan to use Pot and Paddle again. More...
We decided to order take out from here after I had a small sample of the jambalaya a few weeks ago. We got the dinner plate-gumbo, jambalaya, potato salad, Mac and cheese and a roll. The jambalaya, potato salad and Mac and cheese were delicious! I'm a little hesitant to eat gumbo from any restaurant. It wasn't my dad's gumbo, but let me tell you...pretty darn good! I will definitely eat here again. More...
Pot and Paddle had a bit of confusion with a catering order we placed for our crew, however, they jumped on it and corrected and feed our entire crew for a second time! They went above and beyond to make sure our experience with them was good. Thanks from the Tropical Smoothie team! More...
Friendly staff, good food and great portions. Easy to miss in a strip mall but worth finding.
Shelby Dinvaut Williams
The food was great and the staff was friendly!!!!!
Great food- casual family environment. The jambalaya is best around. Large portions! You will not leave hungry. Daily specials are amazing. A must try if you are in the area! Will be back for lunch. More...

Get the gumbo but instead of white rice substitute jambalaya and you can thank me later
Amy Mayer Gilliland
Yummy! Pot and Paddle catered today for LVS. Everyone enjoyed.... Gumbo, Potato Salad & Green Beans....Yes Please!
The jambalaya was good, cole slaw was little different than what I’m used to but in all my meal was worth the price. I will be returning for future visits
I have been there several times and have not been disappointed...neither will you! I guarantee, cher!
Jake Levi Daigle
You definitely won't be disappointed! Great food, Great service and great price. 100% recommend! Can't wait till next time. Cest Bon.!!

Natalie Lyles Ferguson
Loved the Gumbo! I would definitely recommend to family and friends :)
Awesome. Huge portions. Very well seasoned. It wasn’t too spicy. Just right. I will be back.
Lafayette's Best Chicken & Sausage Gumbo! Thank you Katlyn for serving me today!
I had Pot and Paddle cater my event today and the food was amazing! Excellent service and a lot of food for the price! I will definitely have them cater my next event.
Tamera Truxillo Lally
Pot and Paddle catered an event for us and the service and food was remarkable! Large portions and reasonable prices. Excellent choice for family gatherings!!!
I've been here 3 times now and I've never been disappointed. I always get the meal deal with the jambalaya. I got a chance to try their chicken fettuccine today and it was awesome! Great food and service.
Charles K. Middleton
The dishes rock it! The spices used on the entries are just right and tasty!
First time I had been here, however, I am no stranger to jambalaya.(I been to Jambalaya Shoppe many times) A few notes from me: Overall flavor is less than I was hoping for. The jambalaya was cooked very well. Potato salad was good, although possibly a bit too salty. The corn was by far my biggest disappointment, straight from the can. I leave it at 4 stars because some people may prefer having less flavor. More...
The shrimp fettuccine is amazing. ������. Looking forward to the next visit
It's yummy yummy yummy!!!!!!!!!!!
Love the pastalaya! So flavorful and packed with chicken and sausage.
Had the pastalaya, very delicious and well flavored. Price for certain items may be a bit on the expensive side, but quality is what you pay for. Overall, would recommend and eat there again when in town. More...
Great Jumbalaya at a good price!
Food was PERFECT! Friendly staff and fair prices. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
I had the gumbo last week and it was delicious!
Food was awesome, price was fair, staff was friendly! Keep doing exactly what y'all are doing!
Ordered thru Waitr tonight. The food was excellent. Will definitely try again soon.
Valarie Nicole Robin
Great food, awesome staff, and super clean place we were very impressed. Can't wait to go back!
I'm a skeptic when it comes to trying Cajun food from somewhere other than your maw maws kitchen. But I would have to say I'm 100% satisfied. Big portions, perfectly seasoned, and at a great price. Will definitely return. I'll probably fill up my punch card in no time! More...
Delicious food and awesome proportions! They give you so much food at a great price! Best pastalya I've had!
Huge portions and the jambalaya is full of meat. Their prices are also really reasonable.
This place is the real deal! I ordered Pork Stew over Jambalaya and it was all excellent! For $8.99 I couldn't eat but half of what they served!
Cindy Voorhies Jordan
Amazing food! Best red beans and rice! Hours of operation need to be expanded please, please, please.
If you have not been here yet y'all need to come best food � I have ever eaten.
I've eaten at the one in Baton Rouge, and the one in Lafayette is just as good if not better!
Love the Good Food at this Cajun restaurant. We don't eat out much, cause we live in St. Martinville, but when shopping at Hobby Lobby and Micheal or JoAnnes I make it point to stop in at Pots and Paddle .
A Great place to sit and enjoy flavors of Louisiana!!!
