Driving from New Orleans to Houston

Mid December.
Would love recommendation on the best stopping grounds for BBQ and whatever else is a must have on the route.

Goes without saying - nothing the locals don't eat

  1. Drop off the highway and go to Cafe Des Amis in Breux Bridge for Zydego Brunch. I went there a couple of years back and had a GREAT time. And the food is fabulous too.

        The town is really cute too. There's another place I liked in Thibodeaux called the Half Shell. They have a Hank Williams Special: yup, Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, and File Gumbo. For $7.95! Have fun-wish I could go too!
