If you want some great food around Lafayette go to Shade Tree Cafe in Broussard it is some of the best food around.

Mr Johns and LaBoca are a lot better than the 3 steak places on the list.

Haven't been in years, but Pat's in Henderson used to have awesome gumbo. I'm also partial to Maspero poboys.

Yeah, it's in Cypress Bayou. It sucks that it's in probably the shittiest none truck stop casino in Louisiana
