Taste Local Classics

Local Classics

You know Baton Rouge is full of delicious restaurants, but have you experienced the best ones? Pack these restaurants into your itinerary. Then, you can say you’ve dined at the best of the best.

Zeeland Street

Repeat this sentence over and over again until you commit it to memory. Zeeland Street has the best breakfast in the south. This is the home of the Zeeland Slam, which is basically the best of the restaurant’s breakfast items. That includes cheddar cheese grits, eggs your way, and melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk pancakes. This is comfort food on a whole new level, which is something the south is known for serving. Just get there early or get ready to wait. This is far from a well-kept secret. Locals know Zeeland Street is the place to be for a hearty weekend breakfast.

The Chimes East

The Chimes on Highland is so popular the owners had to add a second location. Referred to as The Chimes East, it has the same great food but fewer college students. This is where you go for chargrilled oysters. The cheese and bacon oysters are so good that you’ll never want to eat oysters any other way again. It’s like a taste explosion. Oh, and the barbecue po’boy tastes great when paired with a blonde ale from the Tin Roof Brewery. From food to drinks, The Chimes East has you covered.

Roberto’s River Road Restaurant

The atmosphere at Roberto’s River Road Restaurant is as cozy as the food is tasty. The rooms are small and quaint, and you don’t have to worry about noise interrupting your conversation. When it comes to the food, you’re going to be blown away. The place is known for the eggplant crab cakes that are topped with hollandaise sauce. You know how some eggplant is soggy? This stuff is crispy and delicious. The bacon wrapped shrimp are also really good, and you can’t go wrong with the filet either. It’s cooked to perfection, so you’ll get it exactly how you want it. Plus, the sides here are so good. It’s possible to go on and on about the food, but you really just need to try it for yourself.

Plus, these cars are loaded with so many cool features that you won’t mind it if you’re stuck in traffic for a while. Waiting on I-10 isn’t bad at all when you’re in a new Chevrolet.
