    I visited this place a few months ago... I would advise anyone not to go.. Very very dirty, so small, 3 tables, a few stools that were nasty. The food was really bad, taste like it was warmed up from the day before. Very small portions, the when you get the bill you feel like you just been screwed. I couldn't believe guy would endorse this place.. Very very disappointed

    Won't be patronizing a place owned by an individual with such anti-American views. I'll trust my cajun meals to the experts on the gulf, thanks.

    The above reference to my bankruptcy was made by my dear frien Fluck Biggs, he is so funny. He eats here frequently. For the record, I did file bankruptcy in 2005 and have been doing well. chef Rick Paul P.S. I do have some thoughts on the tea party. 8-)

    Rick is hilarious and you have to try the poboy and bleu cheese mac n cheese. The place may look little but it is just right. Although, when I asked to go to the bathroom you have to go downstairs, where it looks like a dungeon that was badly dressed up. Rick also had some funny comments about my parents that I found funny.

                  Sorry to say but was very disappointed!!!!!!!!   My mom and I were on a road trip back in June 2011, and i was all excited we were going to stop at places on the dinner drive -inn and dive.  When we got to Kentucky I took my aunt and uncle to Rick white lighting dinner.  The food was much overpriced, quality of the food was nasty and the portion will put it this why it made a chain restaurant look good.

    This place was great! The fried green tomatoes were over the top,  the best I've ever eaten. Rick in addition to being a great chef is an amazing person. I can't wait to go back and try some more food!

    This place was awesome.  The owner is a hoot.  Would definietly recommend it.  It is very small, so don't bring too many people

    Just be sure to go there on a day when Rick's ranting about the TEA party and the Republicans and all the other things that he hates, which will really do a lot to season your experience. He's a good cook but a terrible hypocrite who's cheated his creditors by taking bankruptcy to get out of his bad management decisions. Good food, maybe, but not much of a person, only interested in hearing his own hot air.

    This place is exactly as the DDD clip describes it . . . and more. Food is amazing, while you eat you can be sure that Rick will impart some sage wisdom. Pulled pork, oysters crawfish pie, and the best key lime pie i have ever tasted (seriously). Ran into some fellow Canadians that were on a DDD roadtrip too and this was their second time at the White Light in as many days, it is that good.

    It's hard to pass up the pulled pork and ribs at Ricks, but if you can, you'll discover: andouille sausage sandwiches, and crawfish pie. For sides mac & bleu cheese, garlic potatoes, greens, or fresh broccoli can't be beat.
