This is a sad day for Lafayette BBQ lovers--a five star eatery with a five star menu, five star owners, and five star staff members is no longer available. The taste of the pulled pork and the sausage dinners, however, will still be with us. Thank you Marilyn and Gary and staff. The Wanderers

They have a sampler with plenty of food for 2 people. The service and atmosphere was great also. We loved it

I have been here a couple of times in the past few years. It is a clean place with good food. This occasion I had pulled pork, potato salad, and coleslaw. All were good and portions were adequate for lunch.

Been eating here for several years. Food is just so so. Now there is now a $1.00 up charge other than there advertised price. They trying to sell Brisket, Ribs and Shrimp At a $1.00 higher than menu advertised price. This is shady. There is a piece of tape on the menu board but it's now down where the plate... More

Roger, I'm so sorry you were upset but our menu has been like that for almost 2 years. We have the charge noted on our website and every printed menu, plus the big board. When La. shrimp got in short supply, and then again, when beef and rib prices sky-rocketed, we elected to add a $1 to the particular plate... More

Some people like to exaggerate in every review, but I feel totally comfortable in saying I have never had worse barbecue. The pulled pork was dry and I think the bun was half-stale or unnecessarily toasted. The mild sauce I put on my sandwich didn't make it any better. The macaroni and cheese was made from shells and I can't... More

I usually get the pull pork plate. It's a bit on the vinegary side but ok by me. They do have THE BEST homemade onion rings in town....and I'm a onion ring snob. Their rice dressing is old school and deep in flavor. Ribs have a good smoke ring to them. The people there are nice and food is pretty... More

We heard so many great things about this place we decided to give it a try and it was just okay. The price for our food was OUTRAGEOUS!! We went back a second time just in case we had hit a "bad day" but the same thing and of course the price was very high again! Especially when we could... More

On Tuesday they have all you can eat ribs. Lately on rib night the ribs are very thin and dry. Seems they are no longer good buy for the dollar.

The meat and chicken was O.K., but the sides were different, in a strange way. Pork & beans tasted like they had dill pickle juice in them? The potato salad was also strange. We read reviews that were good, so I am not sure what or why? Will not go back.

Why does someone who live in Houston drive to Lafayette for BBQ? Because 2Pauls is the Bomb!!! The sampler plate helps decide what you want. We've even split it as a couple between meals or ordered a large amount and taken it back to our hotel. BBQ is awesome heated the next day since the spices marinate even more.
