local restaurants: Eat Lafayette - Gator Cove - 02/22/16 10:38 PM

If you are looking for a restaurant that perfectly captures the taste and feel of South Louisiana, you have to check out Gator Cove! Gator Cove is 100% Louisiana, combining delicious Cajun food with an exciting atmosphere filled with gators, deer and peacocks. Gator Cove gives its patrons a taste of what Cajun country really is.
The building in which Gator Cove resides was initially built in the early 80s as a garage.  Aubrey and Bonnie Henderson built the garage to house their Bluebird bus; however, the screeching of metal upon metal as Mr. Henderson tried to park the bus proved that the garage wasn't … (2 comments)

local restaurants: Eat Lafayette - Hot Dawg Stop - 11/20/15 11:16 AM
As far as fast food goes, hot dogs aren't a typical option.  At least, that's how it used to be.
Hot Dawg Stop made its debut in Youngsville last year and completely changed the game for fast food.  The concept of made-to-order hot dogs was certainly new to Youngsville residents, but according to the amount of business Hot Dawg Stop receives each day, it's the best idea since sliced bread.  
"I like to say that we recreated the hot dog," says restaurant owner Bryan Aucoin.  Hot Dawg Stop offers so many different ways to customize your hot dogs, some of which you never … (1 comments)

local restaurants: Eat Lafayette - Alesi Pizza House - 10/29/15 12:34 PM

Mariano "Mike" Alesi and his wife Bertha relocated to Lafayette in 1957 and were quickly disappointed by the lack of quality pizza in the are.  Together, the couple decided to open their own restaurant dedicated to serving the Lafayette area with good quality, Italian style pizza.  Alesi opened its doors as Lafayette's very first pizza house.  
Today, Alesi Pizza House is still family owned and operated; Mariano and Bertha's sons, Mike Jr. and Charles, are now in charge, and they still use the original recipes that made Alesi so popular.  Quality has definitely not been lost!
In addition to the best pizza … (0 comments)

Since 1980, people from Lafayette and from around the world have been flocking to Prejean's Restaurant.  Located in upper Lafayette, Prejean's attracts hundreds of hungry customers from breakfast to dinner each day of the week.

When you walk into Prejean's, you immediately notice its eccentric decor.  Spanish moss hangs from mock foliage.  A giant stained glass mural hangs behind the band stand.  A 14-foot alligator, a … (1 comments)

local restaurants: Eat Lafayette - Cafe Vermilionville - 10/09/15 06:57 AM
Cafe Vermilionville is a Lafayette gem.  The local restaurant offers a fine dining experience, serving aesthetically pleasing and delicious cuisine of Cajun and Creole influences in a beautifully decorated atmosphere.
Aside from being a popular eatery, the two-story landmark at 1304 Pinhook Road is quite a historical structure. When it was built, and by whom, no one can say; that information has been lost somewhere in the past.  But it's what we do know about this building that makes it such an integral part of Lafayette's history.
We do know that since it was built, it has served many purposes and has been owned by many … (0 comments)

local restaurants: Eat Lafayette - Dean-O's Pizza - 10/01/15 12:47 AM

Since 1971, Dean-O's Pizza has been a family owned and run pizza parlor dedicated to serving "pizza like no other" to the people of Lafayette.  The local restaurant has come a long way since its small beginnings.  Over the years, the menu has grown, and with it so has its number of loyal customers.  
Despite the expansion of the restaurant, including the addition of another Dean-O's location, the quality and high standards on which the restaurant was founded have not been lost.  All of Dean-O's dishes are still made using made-from-scratch sauces, seasoned with a patented blend of spices.  Only the freshest and top-quality … (2 comments)

local restaurants: Don's Seafood Hut - 08/13/15 03:04 AM
With seven total locations spread across South Louisiana, Don's Seafood Hut is a highly-respected regional chain.  But quality has most certainly not been lost in the chain's expansion; each dish is prepared with fresh ingredients and seafood caught right here in the Gulf of Mexico, and will taste just as delicious regardless of the location.
Here in Lafayette, Don's is especially famous for its seafood platter, an all-inclusive dish containing stuffed crab, fried shrimp, stuffed shrimp, fried catfish, fried oysters, and shrimp étouffée.
But what Lafayette rages about most is Don's gumbo--Don's Seafood Hut was rated number 1 by the Times of Acadiana for best … (1 comments)
