I'm NOT a Cajun by any means. But I do love a great po boy. They have it here. I had the shrimp po boy and it was very very good. This is where I'll stop from now on for lunch.

This place has the best burger in Baton Rouge! The seafood platters are also amazing with homemade tartar sauce! I go there every week with my coworkers.

After touring the old capitol, my wife and I stopped here for a quick lunch. This is a relatively small place but they have seating for a fair number of people. There was a CONSTANT flow of customers - always a good sign. I had...More
