Here in South Louisiana, we have some of the best food around but one of the most popular foods that we serve is Boudin.

Boudin is one of the first foods that I get my out-of-town friends to try when they come to visit. But this opens up the question of where are the best places to get Boudin from?

I took to social media to ask this question and there were so many comments of places that have the very best Boudin. There were so many comments I actually had to narrow it down to the top 5 places that were listed.

Here are the top 5 best places to get Boudin in Acadiana:

Nunu's in Youngsville:
