Best restaurants in LaFayette, LA

  • 2

I've always heard LaFayette, LA has great places to eat - even better than New Orleans. Anybody have reccommendations for real cajun or creole food? I'm interested in great, local food, don't care about anything fancy. Any advice? Thanks.

    1. Hi! My beau grew up in Lafayette, and these are his recommendations:

      Prejeans
      Lafayette's
      Poorboy's Riverside Inn (hard to find, but fantastic)
      since it's almost crawfish season, he says The Boiling Point (which is actually in Henderson-?- is where it's at

      Avoid:
      Mulates in Breaux Bridge (famous/loud and touristy)
      Don's downtown (good food, sanitation practice leaves a lot to be desired)

      Will get back to you with more as he thinks of them.
      We do always eat well when we go visit his folks!
