Fred's Lounge in Momou

420 6th St, Mamou, LA

337-468-5411

Hours: Saturday: 8:00 A.M. to noon. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: closed.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Freds-Lounge/118061628255585

Location: an isolated town of not quite 3,500 people where the median income hovers around the poverty line. In fact, if you don't show up by 8:15 A.M., you won't get a seat. After about 8:45, you'll be lucky to find standing room.

Be sure to check out our EVENT CALENDAR for more local live festivals.

If you do manage to get in, odds are you'll be four drinks in by 10:30 or so. That's partly because the drinks are dirt cheap, partly because everybody around you is pounding 'em down as though Saturday morning were Saturday night, and partly because the music just makes you want to drink.

 About the music: It's live, it's rowdy, and it's all in French. Fred's, you see, has been hosting its Saturday-morning Cajun-music broadcast since 1962. Back then, that was just another thing the bar did. Now it's all that's left.
 
Fred, who bought the place just after the war, died 20 years back. His ex-wife, Tante Sue, as everyone calls her, still shows up every week, although when we were there she wasn't working her way through the dancing, drinking, hooting and hollering crowd — farmers, LSU boys, oil workers, professors, sorority girls — dispensing shots of cinnamon schnapps, as was her wont, and she didn't sing with the band.
 
 
Cajun Food

If you're not from this area and love learning about the cajun culture and its food,  there is one thing for sure....  You'll want to eat some boudin, cracklin, sausage, gumbo, fried catfish, sauce picante, crawfish etouffee, bread pudding and a seafood Coubion.  I urge you to book the Cajun Food Tour listed above; you won't regret it!

We've sorted the restaurants out into categories to help you decide where you should spend your days/nights eating.  Hope this helps!
