American

Lakeview’s B&L is a cash-only, counter-serve American eatery that offers some of the best-bang-for-your-buck food. Its soft-shelled crab po’boy is unbelievably tender and covered in a crunchy batter. It’s served with a bed of lettuce, pickles, fried soft shelled crab, a squeeze of lime, and delicious chili aioli "special sauce.” Other notable menu items are the cajun fries (crispy with a pillow-y soft inside) and tacos (al pastor and Samurai fish). Service is fast, and you may even get a glimpse of co-owners “Big” and “Little” in the kitchen.
