    My son and I ate here today. Just happened to find by chance! The food was excellent! Not quite understanding some of the reviews! The comments from franbow here on sight are a little confusing as the food is cooked right in front of you, so definitely not from the day before! You don't have to agree with all of Rick's views, but I found it refreshing in this day and age to have someone tell you exactly how they feel! The whole experience was wonderful! Will definitely go back when in the area! By the way, no it is not cheap, but I walked away feeling it was well worth the price!

    We didn't read any reviews before stopping in but that may have helped us in making a different decision. While by no means was it horrible, it wasn't Cajun food we are used to getting when visiting Louisiana. If you visit & eat there - think of the dishes as interpretations. We did love the funky location but the price for the portion size was a bit much. I get capitalizing on DDD fame, but $15 for a sandwich is a lot for a town like Frankfort.

    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!

    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.

    Rick's was GREAT! If you are in the area, do not pass up a chance to enjoy their menu and get a awesome picture of the State Capitol. Don't forget to put a push pin by your home town!
