re: Who here has been to Ruffino's this month and had the Butter Steak? - andouille
Ruffino's has fallen far since it's apex (before they opened in Lafayette). We went for Thanksgiving, mostly because it was one of the few places open. I ordered the "Grand Thanksgiving Dinner", or something like that, for $32.50. Swanson's or Banquet frozen dinners would have been a better choice. ...

re: Potential food board blasphemy: Red Beans and Rice is extremely overrated - andouille
Since moving to BR 30 years ago, I agree, in BR red beans are pathetically underseasoned, my grade school cafeteria in Metairie made better RB. They mostly taste like Blue Runner straight from the can, add a piece of gummy French bread or sweet corn bread and you have complete MEH. RB should be ...

re: What happened to Shucks? - andouille
Run by idiots, one trip and I had enough. After the 3rd try to get my bill to resemble what we ate, I paid what I wanted and left. Cold entrees, confused service, indifferent management, not exactly a formula for success. ...

re: Your opinion of LSU fans riding Auburn dick - andouille
Grow up Gump, 95% of the fans of other schools are cheering your demise. It doesn't have anything to do with your coach being a jerk, or your fans being redneck, inbred, tree-killing morons, it's because it improves chances for their teams. I know you think the world revolves around that crap ho...

re: Adrians on Perkins in BR - andouille
Re: Ruffino's, this is a thread about Adrians, however, I am a long time lover of Ruffino's, but since they opened in Lafayette, Highland Rd. is a step or two below the level of excellence they once were. We still go, almost out of habit, but I don't brag to out-of-towners about it as I once did. FM...

The best fried catfish in BR is at the deli counter at Hi Nabor on Jones Creek. Incredibly light and crunchy, with a little spice. ...

re: Is there a more overrated quick place to eat than Chipotle? - andouille
My daughter and her brood love Chipotles, it is perfect for them, no flavor, I don't think an actual unadulterated chipotle pepper has ever been in the place. Children and hipsters hate flavor, the less the better. No child in Chipotles ever said "this is too spicy, it burns my mouth". Chili's is...

re: Auburn lost to Ed Orgeron - andouille
One of my best friends is an Aubie lifer, he played ball and lettered, so they are my 2nd favorite SEC team, there is no 3rd. I am no big "O" fan, I think Alleva should have gotten off his lazy arse and interviewed some of the other candidates. But, O may surprise us...time will tell. ...

re: I Am Very Pleased With 3rd And Chavis! - andouille
In the last 2 weeks Aranda'a crew has given us what Chavis failed to deliver on many occasions, a stop in the 4th quarter with the game on the line. His "PREVENT" defenses were a disaster. Thanks Aggies, we are forever in your debt. ...

re: What is the last stupid thing you have done in the kitchen? - andouille
I was tasked with baking several baguettes for Christmas dinner. Made my poolish, started in plenty of time for rising, made the dough. After the 1st rise the dough didn't look quite right, but didn't register. Formed the loaves, just didn't look right, must be my imagination. After baking they were...

re: Best chargrilled oysters in BR? - andouille
I had Phil's the other night, they were watery. I think they cooked them too long at too low a temp. Mansurs' and French Market Bistro are the same excellent recipe, the best in BR by far, IMHO. ...

re: This is a Tremendous Loss - andouille
Of course all of your driving is on the beautiful, scenic, Waco-BR route, just being as tad facetious. You sir, are correct. This is what happens when the AD hires a football coach without taking his feet off of his desk. ...
