Shreveport to Lafayette, east to the MS coast

In a few weeks, I'll be making a road trip from Dallas to the gulf coast in MS.

I-20(Dallas) to I-49(Shreveport) to I-10(Lafayette-ish) to I-12(Baton Rouge) and back to I-10(Slidell).
(I *think* I got all of the proper intersect points)

A few weeks later, I'll reverse the order for my return.

This isn't really a pleasure trip and will be made in 1 day (about 10 hrs), so unfortunately, venturing very far off-course for eats isn't an option. BUT, can anyone offer some (non-chain) good, cheap regional eats along the way - Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I hope to pick up some meat pies at Lasyone's in Natchitoches and hope even more to eat some good Creole, Cajun or both as we pass near Lafayette - but really would like to have some specific recs for that. I'll be spending time on the coast, so I'll happily get my fill of seafood while there. Thanks for any help offered!

Hey bayoucook! You around?
