The 5 Best Places to Eat in Ascension Parish …… A personal opinion.

noms

Whether you are looking for a quick bite to eat or sit down for a family meal, Ascension Parish has many restaurants to choose from. In the last 10 years the choices of types of food has broadened greatly. As the parish has grown so has the taste buds of my fellow Ascension Parish neighbors. Even though our area is considered small in comparison to Baton Rouge or New Orleans, that doesn’t mean we don’t have some amazing food and passionate people making tasty treats. I’m listing 5 of my personal favorite places to visit:

1. DON’S SEAFOOD Restaurant & Oyster Bar
Address: 2405 West Cabela’s Parkway, Gonzales, LA 70737
Phone: 225-644-4888 | Fax: 225-644-4998
Hours: Sunday – Thursday 10:30 am to 10:00 pm | Friday & Saturday 10:30 am to 11:00 pm
My first choice is Don’s Seafood, for what I consider to be the best Fried Catfish with Red Beans and Rice I have ever had. Several years back my home had been hit by a tornado off of HWY 930 in Prairieville. Early in the evening my doorbell rang , Ray Stonemark, the restaurants co-owner, handed my whole family a hot plate of fried catfish with red beans and rice – something I wouldn’t normally ask for in a restaurant. It was absolutely delicious. The Catfish was so crisp. The red beans were creamy, and the rice was fluffy – the perfect pillow to the red beans. Not only was it the perfect comfort meal after something so scary, it really was just down right, damn good food. I’ll never forget it, and my family gets this meal from here often.

2. Burger Delight
Address: 40255 LA-42, Prairieville, LA 70769
Phone: (225) 622-4444

This is not a sit down and eat type of place, but they do have great burgers. The lines run long most of the day when you drive through, but it’s worth the wait. The burgers are always fresh, hot and oh so delicious! Many may remember the old location on Airline Hwy. This newer one is a big improvement as far as exterior, but the burgers are just as good as before. My kids love the milkshakes.

Love this Mexican Restaurant! As soon as you walk in the front door you can watch them making homemade tortillas. The service is kind of slow, so I would go when you are not in a rush. My family loves the Cheese Dip (Queso). We order it with the fresh hot tortillas, and the steak fajitas are sooooo good.

4. Hello Tokyo 2

I love sushi, and there are many places to choose from now here in Ascension Parish, but the4 Hello Tokyo location in Gonzales was the first. Their food is so good that they opened a new location right down the road in Prairieville. From the hibachi grill to the fresh rolled sushi rolls, it’s worth trying for yourself.

5. Sammy’s Grill
Phone: (225) 313-6025 · Address.
Address: 16400 Airline Hwy; Prairieville, Louisiana 70769

The lines are long during dinner time but for good reason. From the huge homemade cheese sticks, to the fresh boiled crawfish, this place has everything south Louisiana loves about seafood.

This list is just my opinion and is not in any specific order – I just LOVE food. All of us have been eating out more since the Great Flood of 2016. Maybe this can help you find a different place to try out.
