I'm going to Baton Rouge tomorrow to see Pucifer (singer from Tool). Is there any one place that I just have to check out while I'm there? I'm also going to be on the hunt for some killer food!!!

It was going to be a 4 day weekend, but a bunch of stuff came up at the last minute, so it's just an overnight thing now...

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

If only I could remember the bar I went to several times back in 2006 in BR. It's right off the main road. Has an outdoor deck. Awesome food and LSU co-eds. I'll find out the name.

Two places. Pasttime Pizza (incredible pizza and a bartender that owns a pink Harley and had been in Easy-Rider several times),and Walk Ons (the one I mentioned).

I'm thinking about wearing my Razorback shirt... Then again, maybe not.

If you drive through Lafayette on your way out then I would suggest you stop at either of these great Cajun restaurants:
  • Don's Seafood on Johnston St. (Start with seafood gumbo and get the crawfish or crab platter)
  • Chris' Poboys (order gumbo and the Chris' Special...get one for the drive home)
Dude, look up Urban Spoon or Yelp on your phone and it will point you in the right direction for food. No excuse to eat at a crappy place while you are in South Louisiana. Eat up.

I see you are from Arkansas and will likely drive to Lafayette and then turn north to Arkansas.
Lafayette is the Heart of Acadiana....Cajun central. Do your taste buds a favor and take a little food detour. Chris' Poboys won't take long and they have a number of locations.

The other must go place is Don's Specialty Meats. This is right off the highway.
Get some hot boudin and get some frozen to take home. You will love it. They will have a lot of really good prepared meats and sausages. I would suggest buying a cooler from the them and packing that sucker up with some frozen goodies. It will say frozen for 24 hours. You will blow your friends away when you grill some of that killer Cajun sausage.

Enjoy.

I know I’m bringing this thread back from the dead but wanted to offer to answer any questions about Baton Rouge. I work for BRPD and can help if you need to know where to avoid etc if any of you are traveling this way.
Thanks for the offer, and for your service to the community. I’m in Houston but have an office in BR on Laurel St. Next time I’m in your city I’ll give you a heads up and the coffee’s my treat!
