No one leaves here hungry
If you're in Abbeville, you wouldn't want to skip a meal at Miss Beaulah's Kitchen. Though usually closed on Saturday, Miss Beaulah was behind the counter for Cattle Festival and the joint was jumping. Her specialty is crawfish pie and she's known for hamburgers about the size of your head, but day to day the menu varies. When I chose the New Orleans style po boy from the handwritten options listed on the board, Beulah's lovely daughter handed me a huge stack of napkins. I asked if she thought I was likely to be messy, and she and her mother both just laughed. "Oh, it'll be messy, alright!" she warned, and she was correct. But I will also add that it was excellent.
