thumbnail for Big Woodrow's Bar & GrillKind of an indoor/outdoor bar. Great crawfish, relatively cheap drinks, a pool table, attentive staff. Trivia on Tuesdays and a great place to catch any game. Huge patio.

thumbnail for La VistaLa Vista might be the best kept secret in the area for traditional dining. It does t look like much on the outside but everything on the menu is four star gourmet, believe it it not. Also, you can bring your own wine; I recommend the mussels.

thumbnail for Postal-MaxThis are is not immediately convenient to find a post office within, so I go here often to use their postal services. They charge a little more than USPS, but no lines. And they have a notary public.
