On the far southern border of St. Landry Parish lies the village of Cankton. For adventurers who’d prefer the road less traveled, this small town is located along scenic Highway 93. Roll the windows down and you just might catch a whiff of the killer barbeque from Moma C’s Cankton Drive Inn. While you’re there, take the opportunity to chat with locals and hear the story of Dr. Louis Aristide “Cank.” As a boy, Guidry would signal his family that he was home from a hunt by using the duck call "Cank, cank, cank." His folks would say, “Cank est revenu,” (Cank is back) and the name stuck.
Cankton is centrally located within a few miles of numerous notable Cajun Country cities: Church Point (synonymous with the Courir de Mardi Gras celebration), Scott (the undisputed Boudin Capital of the World), Grand Coteau (home to more than 70 historic homes) and the de facto Cajun Country capital of Lafayette.
