Bud's Louisiana Cafe

Discreetly situated in the business sector of Kearny Mesa is Bud’s Louisiana Café, a tried and tested destination for authentic Southern cuisine. This neighborhood eatery is bustling throughout the day with businesspeople and other local loyalists who make a point to savor Bud’s many Creole offerings. The Bud’s façade is almost indistinguishable from adjacent businesses; once inside, diners are welcomed by genuine Louisiana congeniality. The dining room is intimate, but not crowded, and well lit with natural sunlight streaming in from a wall’s length of large windows. Classic Creole specialties include dishes like the Cajun Jambalaya, the Pulled Pork Po Boy, and the Fried Oyster Plate. With so many tasty Down-South treats to try, we can all enjoy a little Southern hospitality .

User Reviews

Best Louisiana Cuisine this side of New Orleans  

Bud's makes the best Red Beans and Rice outside Louisiana. The corn muffins, ceasar salad and bread pudding are also a must! Wait until you try it. The funny thing about this restaurant is that it's tucked back into an industrial park, so it's hard to find unless you know where you're going. But it's worth the effort.
