Side Trips from New Orleans Restaurants



Prejean's Review

Original artwork lines the walls of this local favorite along Interstate 49, north of central Lafayette. Three meals are served in this cypress house decorated with swamp trees and a large stuffed alligator at the entrance. People gather at tables with red-and-white-check cloths to chow down on some of Prejean's classics: crawfish and alligator sausage cheesecake, Cajun-style venison, or any of the kitchen's four distinctive gumbos. Grilled seafood provides some lighter options. At breakfast, try the house rendition of eggs Benedict, made here with boudin patties, poached eggs, and crawfish étouffée over a biscuit. There's live Cajun music, and usually dancing, nightly.
