Baton Rouge and Lafayette-what's open on Thanksgiving?

6 posts in this topic

We are taking a road trip from Chicago to LA over the holiday. Depending on travel time we will be in either Baton Rouge or Lafayette (or a nearby parish). Anyone know of a place to eat that is not too fancy but great food? Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you!

The only place I've ever dined in Lafayette on Thanksgiving Day was Lafayette's, which goes to an all-buffet menu for the holiday. It's a fixed-price, around $15-$20 pp, IIRC. Gumbo, turkey, dirty rice, fried catfish, sweet potatoes, etc. If you do go this route, call for reservations and try to get an early seating--the place is a madhouse that only gets madder as the day progresses.

I think Lafayette's closed.

We've not been in that area on T'giving, but have been stuck travelling through there multiple times on Christmas and New Years. It's tough. Very little is open, not even the chain places. Your best bet may be to find someplace in Baton Rouge.

We made it to Blue Dog and the place did not disappoint. We arrived to a packed house at 12:15 and by 1:pm the place had cleared out-something about the big football game... Plenty of steam table options-plus carved turkey and roast. Dirty rice and the pecan sweet potatos were our faves. The whole bill for a family of 4 was $62 plus tip. We had no booze and OJ was provided. The next day went to Thyme for incredible fresh oyster Po boys and Guidrots to stock up on sausages and other goodies.
