re: Give me a Sunday lunch in Lafayette - bdevill
That's a list of restaurants, some good, but the majority aren't near the caliber of or suitable alternatives to Don's, not to mention many aren't open on Sunday for lunch for a party of four, or serve beer and wine, which is what the OP is looking for. Taco Sisters, Agave, Blue Dog, Pop's Poboys, ...

[quote]Well that and the fact that most old people are set in their ways and aren't usually open to trying new things [/quote] That's a broad sweeping generalization that's not true, especially about people that like to go out to dinner. Why don't you name 25 places in Lafayette, you'd like to...

re: How Do You Like TVs in Restaurants? - bdevill

[quote]Ten minutes and I am walking out.[/quote] I don't know if I would walk out, if it's a place I or my company really want to go. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. That being said, not being greeted promptly is a clear indication that it's going to be a difficult dining experience, unl...

re: What is your max time you will wait for a table? - bdevill
I was in New Orleans this past weekend and saw people waiting in line, a good 30 people long, at these tourist dumps on Chartres near Canal.
