Charley G's is credited with revolutionizing a smoked-meat gumbo in Lafayette; a thick, rich smoky mixture of pure delight. The original recipe has been co-opted by just about every other top-end restaurant in the area, but Charley G's always came out on top. So, when...More

Charlie G's is a unique, one of a kind restaurant that serves top notch Cajun and Creole cuisine. The kitchen is built so that guest can see the chefs preparing the dishes. Although expensive, it is well worth it.
