  • Wing FIngers

    Wing FIngers

    UPDATE: Since this post was written Wing Fingers has moved locations to the Wurst Biergarten located at 537 Jefferson St., in Downtown Lafayette You may make the reasonable assumption that Wing Fingers, a restaurant, and bar serving, most notably, chicken wings, is just ordinary. You would be wrong. The eatery on Johnston Street near the UL campus is anything but ordinary. The restaurant started as a food truck when owners John Hackney and Taylor Cooper were hanging out building a fire pit. John...

The owner, Shawn Broaddus, says when he decided to settle on a burger-centric restaurant, he knew he would be offering lots of options.  To be sure, there are many preset burgers to choose from, but the...

    Sandra's Cafe & Health Food Store

    Lafayette is a great place to be for someone who likes to eat. The decision of what to eat for any particular meal is met with seemingly endless options. But sometimes those options can lead to overindulgences, tempting us to take care of our appetites and our desire to try everything instead of taking care of our health. Some people believe that eating good food that tastes great should not necessarily be met with having to worry about nutrition, weight gain, and overall health concerns. Those...
