HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If you live in Denver Harbor, you know Burt's Meat Market on Lyons Avenue is a staple for Cajun food.

"Our gumbo beef tips, oh my God, (they are) to die for," said store manager Chasidi Lockett. "Our ribs (and) our boudin balls are to die for!"

The boudin is a popular dish from the eatery, and the secret behind its delicious flavor is one only the owner knows.

Everything is made in house, with a lot of flavor and the secret ingredient.
