Is Baton Rouge More Like Shreveport or New Orleans?

Go.


I posted this in a comment below, but I thought I'd come back and add it here:

quote:

I read a Rod Dreher article today that said that BR was more like Shreveport when it came to food than New Orleans or Lafayette, even though it was in South Louisiana. Wondering what folks here thought. He said that people in BR liked conventionality and predictability more than experimentation.

Much more like Shreveport. But Shreveport is a better Shreveport than Baton Rouge. BR is neither fish nor fowl.

Way better than Shreveport, less fun or interesting than NOLA

Shreveport has an actual upper crust/elite, so I'd say Shreveport and NOLA have more in common than either has with BR.

Shreveport. Outside of LSU and NBR, Baton Rouge is like a giant country town.

Some friends have been trying to convince me to move back to Baton Rouge. I google searched where they were going to eat last night and saw that it was a restaurant in a strip mall. frick. That.

Isn't BR still the chain capital of America?

So there's your answer

BR is like Jackson, MS with less culture.

I have great childhood memories, I really do.

But as a adult ugh

I'm 60 miles away and dread going anywhere near it.

You just sound like a huge drag.

I've lived in BR all my life, can't stand the people like you who are just like "OMG Baton Rouge is such a podunk one horse town, the light of my awesomeness isn't even noticed here"

I submit that you would be just as unhappy no matter where you grew up.
