Fontenot’s Cajun Café, Natchitoches, LA Report #436

Ever saw the movie Steel Magnolias? With Sally Field and Julie Roberts? One claim to fame this city has is it was set and filmed here. I never saw that movie, so let’s move on. Another thing that this city is known for are their meat pies. A lot of menus in New Orleans will… Continue reading Fontenot’s Cajun Café, Natchitoches, LA Report #436

Coffee On The Red, Bossier City, LA Report #435

I eat sweet potatoes pretty often. I like the taste and they’re very healthy for you. My wife doesn’t eat them. She doesn’t like sweet potatoes. But she used to travel a lot for her job and worked in this area pretty often. For some reason she tried a sweet potato muffin from this place… Continue reading Coffee On The Red, Bossier City, LA Report #435

Jasmine’s Noodle Bar, Bossier City, LA Report #433

Second stop on my road trip. I hadn’t eaten since lunch at Mike Anderson’s, which was 270 miles ago! We had seafood then. We weren’t sure what type of cuisine we wanted for dinner. I googled, “Restaurants Near Me’, and a Chinese restaurant called the Four Winds popped up. Wasn’t far from our hotel and… Continue reading Jasmine’s Noodle Bar, Bossier City, LA Report #433

Mike Anderson’s Seafood, Gonzales, LA Report #432

I just got home from a road trip. So my next several reports will be from places outside of New Orleans. This was the first stop on the trip. Very popular place. So popular in fact there was a 40 minute wait for a table. After about 10 minutes two seats opened up at the… Continue reading Mike Anderson’s Seafood, Gonzales, LA Report #432

Hambone, Mandeville, LA Report #431

It’s that time of year. The official start (as far as I’m concerned) of the Christmas season! For several years now we’ve drove across the Causeway Bridge to St. Tammany Parish to cut down our own Christmas tree. We decided to stop off in Mandeville, LA., for lunch. If you like cozy little places that… Continue reading Hambone, Mandeville, LA Report #431

Abita Springs Cafe, Abita Springs, LA Report #430

It was such a beautiful day here in New Orleans we decided to take the bikes, make the voyage across the Causeway to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain and do a little bike riding on the Tammany Trace.

Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427

This place is pretty famous. So famous, as you can see in my pictures above, even Santa Claus eats here! He looks pretty stuffed. Probably slammed down about 10 bowls of gumbo to knock that North Pole chill off of him. Deanie’s has been serving seafood to the folks in the New Orleans area for… Continue reading Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427

Jaeger’s Seafood and Oyster House, Jefferson, LA Report #426

This restaurant has been around since 1948. The third picture above was one of their restaurants in New Orleans, on Elysian Fields Ave. I grew up less than a mile from that one and we loved it. There was another location in New Orleans at West End. Both of those are long gone, but this… Continue reading Jaeger’s Seafood and Oyster House, Jefferson, LA Report #426
