The restaurant began as Stansbury’s Café back in 1965 in the infancy of the Oil Center, the commercial neighborhood that surrounds Hub City Diner. The original restaurant was founded by Lafayette restaurateur Charles Goodson, Chef Pat Mould and advertising executive and local foodie George Graham.

The concept was a 1950s diner but with more of a Louisiana twist to it. Jimmy Guidry, who has years of food and bar experience throughout Lafayette, purchased the restaurant in 1998. The diner changed ownership again in 2021 with longtime manager Jason Redmond now at the helm. The ambiance remains the same: vinyl booths and chairs, checkered floors, nostalgic photos on the wall — even a ceramic Pelican that’s dressed like Elvis.

One of the staff favorites is the turkey sandwich that’s grilled on marbled bread with onions and Swiss cheese then dressed with lettuce and tomato and served with sweet potato fries. Other popular menu items include the grilled shrimp and fried green tomato salad topped with the Hub City remoulade dressing and set atop romaine lettuce with cucumbers and tomatoes.

Local favorites continue to be the “2x2x2,” featuring two eggs, two sausage patties, two pieces of bacon, hash browns or grits and 2 fluffy pancakes for breakfast and the 3-Way Hamburger Steak, more than a half pound of lean ground meat loaded with cheese, onions and brown gravy that’s served with mashed potatoes for lunch and dinner.
