what's crackin', birdman
I'm just here to revel in a Lake Charles thread that isn't full of hate
First I want to say something I haven't seen mentioned yet: Lebanese/Mediterranean place smack in the middle of where the hell called Cousin's
. Food and, more importantly, beer selection there is unreal, especially for Lake Charles.
I'll also praise the Darrell's bandwagon. Reminds me that after the last day of finals Junior year in high school, a good bit of us went to Darrell's and actually chatted a bit with "Darrell." Apparently his favorite sandwich there isn't the Special, but the BBQ Brisket. Boy was he right.
Another favorite spot of mine back home was KD's diner...better than Louie's IMO, but don't tell any BR folks that.
Other than that, I never really ventured to the more "uppity" places to eat...my parents had four kids to pay for, plus they cook all the time.
But I'll also nod to Steamboat Bill's and Luna's.
