GO FOR: Seriously good smoked meats, and hearty daily specials.

Très Bon Cajun Meats is located on Jefferson Highway in River Ridge.

It’s easy super easy to get to from Harahan and Kenner, easy to reach from Old Jefferson, and Riverbend, and worth the drive from everywhere else (even out of state).

Très Bon is the brainchild of Billy Newton. Billy is a local guy who grew up with a love for cajun cooking. He honed his service industry chops by working and owning bars and restaurants across town, has entered and won numerous crawfish cooking competitions, and opened this restaurant / specialty food shop / neighborhood grocery because there wasn’t anything quite like it in the area, and he has successfully created a homey atmosphere with good food, too.

The inspiration for Très Bon came from his mom, Elaine Jeansonne, whose wit and wisdom can be seen sprinkled throughout the store. At Tres Bon, they follow two simple rules: Buy Local and Eat Fresh!

It’s here you’ll find unique ingredients from all over Louisiana. Come in and try house smoked meats, home made boudin, boudin balls, meat pies, cracklin, and seafood — all made in-house. Get the pepper jack boudin balls, and tell ’em ScottyMac sent ya.

Hot meals daily for dine-in and plenty of ready-to-go items fresh or frozen – to take home. They also sell beer and wine, and Aa wide variety of select dry goods and pantry items made from local craftspeople.

Bring the kids, and let them play one of the two old school pinball machines.
