Good Cajun restaurant easy I-10 access
I tried to find the restaurant thread, but failed.
This restaurant (Big Daddy's) had a very good Cajun lunch buffet for 8.95. Excellent food, good mix, good desert, cute and friendly waitresses, friendly locals.
There's also a Love's at the exit. The restaurant has a stage and have nightly music. It's within walking distance of the Love's, but be careful because they're on opposite sides of the I-10 overpass.
Exit 43 (for you newbies, that's 43 miles from the Louisana/Texas border).
Go north, take the first left after clearing the overpass. Keep an eye out, it's not far from the overpass. There's also a little shack that does mud bugs (crawfish) and shrimp to go. I may try that next time through. Get a pound for the cooler.
Big Daddy's is about 1/2 mile on the left in front of a discount mall. Take the 2nd exit to the mall (the first is clearly marked NO TRUCKS).
I went around back of the mall, had an easy turnaround in the dock, then parked heading out along the side of the building.
The mall isn't very busy, it's an easy park. No backing required.
