Comments

  1. I think that Lazy L’s Gumbo Shack is actually Lazy K’s Gumbo Shack.

  2. Hi there – Onyx – thanks for the correction – yes we are Lazy K’s Gumbo Shack and we actually have just moved as well – we are now at Mississippi and Beech Street next to the Gabagool Truck and across from the Amnesia Brewing Company!
