Road trip along I-10W to I-49N - Eats between Baton Rouge and Alexandria

CocoaNut | Jul 28, 2010 01:18 PM

I'll be making this trip mid-Sept and will be in no particular rush. Will have early lunch in N.O., then set out with a final dest. of Dallas. Plan to stay overnight somewhere between Lafayette and Alexandria.

For stretch between Baton Rouge and Alexandria, will be looking for good, what the locals eat Creole/Cajun-Acadian spots. It could be for leg-stretching snacks or, will also need ideas for dinner. Would prefer not to venture more than about 5 miles off either highway, but......

I've had someone rec Don's Specialty Meats - would like additional input.
Also Prejeans - Have looked at their menu, but it has way too many menu selections - looks like they're trying too hard to have something to appeal to everyone, ie, tourist trap food. I grew up on the coast in MS and have kept close ties, so know what's "right" and what's not.

Off-topic from the title - would also like a rec for lunch somewhere around Shreveport.

Thanks y'all!!
