Eats – Louisiana

Debbie Olson – Debbie is, by default, the best cook in the family (and I have the stomach to prove it). People often send us requests for her cooking well in advance of our arrival. Her best dishes are gumbo, chicken & dumplings and of course her beans. Everything is excellent and quantities are generous. You may have to serve yourself if you get second helpings but this is a minor inconvenience. I am truly blessed to be married to her!

Crawfish Town  (Breaux Bridge) – excellent food and atmosphere.  Cajun music in the background.  I had the stuffed shrimp, Deb had fried seafood – both were great.  It’s located next to the RV park we are staying at. (They will pick you up in a cart and take you home).

Pizza Village (Lafayette) – Cracker thin crust, all ingredients seasoned- just wonderful pizza.  2/17/17

Pat’s Fisherman’s Wharf (Henderson) – Food was really good but we had problems getting what we ordered.

We both ordered the Combo meal – menu says it includes eggrool and fried jalapeño.  Waitress said they don’t include them anymore and that you would need to check the paper.  Mm.. not a great thing if you are out of town.

My plate had two more shrimp and a hushpuppy than Deb’s.  The waitress told us the cook claimed he put them on but she told him to fry up more anyway.







Landry’s (Breaux Bridge) –  The food was good but the “Wow” factor was missing.  Started with stuffed jalapeños with crabmeat (off menu) which was milder than Galveston ‘s and missing a shrimp.  Deb had planked shrimp which was tasty but not enough.  I had the seafood platter which was very good.  Deb’s meal came with a dessert and she chose creme brûlée which she enjoyed very much.   3/19/17

Salt Grass. (Lafayette) – We have eaten so much seafood!  It was time for steak so we decided to try Salt Grass again (it’s been a while).  Deb got the filet and I got the new youk strip…both done perfectly.  3/26/17
