Best gumbo in Baton Rouge

bobgelb Aug 5, 2013 03:35 PM

Driving thru Baton Rouge and spending the night. Looking for a good, really excellent place for some La Cajun food..in particular, really want to go to the
Restaurant who has the best gumbo. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    If its anything like New Orleans, find a dive.

      I rarely if ever order restaurant gumbo, much less pay for the 'privilege' to eat it. I do not live in Baton Rouge but have friends that do, so this comes not as a solid recommendation but rather just some ideas for your consideration. Not in any order. HTH

      The Chimes East.

          Red stick. . Actually, no, went on to Slidell for the night and wound up at some seafood restaurant near the lake...had some flounder, it wasn't too good...not much in Slidell...thanks for asking.

            Yeah, "Slidell" is French for strip mall.
