Local Flavor Baton Rouge Lafayette and Opelousas
Can you recommend some humble local places which are not fancy or trendy?
Bergeron's in Port Allen, Webster's in Cecelia, ma Mama's Kitchen in New Roads (good oysters Bienville, excellent turtle soup), lots of stuiff on I-49 between Opelousas and Lafayette. Of course, Best Stop, Don's for boudin, headcheese, sausages.
Hard to find a fancy, trendy place in Lafayette and environs! Try Poor Boy's Riverside and Don's in Lafayette, Soops in Maurice just to the south for a plate lunch daily special, and Shucks in Abbeville a little more south for oysters. Johnson's Boucaniere in Lafayette for boudin or grocery store NuNu's in Maurice or Milton for boudin.
In Baton Rouge, Mason's on Jefferson is great and they have all you can eat fried catfish on Wednesdays.
