Owner Bobbie LaRose: Chester Boudreaux, Sr. converted his father’s old grocery store in a dancehall in the 1930s. The dancers wanted food, so a kitchen was added. The dancehall was popular in the 1940s but was closed close to 1950 when the activity around Morgan City slowed after World War 2. Now the building houses a popular restaurant that draws people from the surrounding area for their famous fried chicken.
