121 Artisan Bistro Bread is delish! Also the pizzas are devine!!!
Botsky's Love this place. No call ahead for take out yet. Busy, busy at lunch. Plan on waiting awhile, they make it fresh in front of you.
Pujo Street Cafe Shrimp Bisque is great. Creamy with a slight smokey flavor.

Balls Fried Chicken The chicken is the star of the menu here. You can't go wrong with it.
Southern Spice I was extremely disappointed with this place. The menu looked so promising but the food was a different story. Gumbo is a no for sure and the fried seafood platter was somewhat bearable.

Wasabi Beef curry extra spicy with fried rice.
Jo Jo's China Bistro General Tso chicken is amazing
Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers Go to Raising Cane's. Order me some chicken and some bread and some fries.

Cotten's Famous Hamburgers A must when you are in Lake Charles! Catfish s great, and cheeseburgers hit the spot.
Panera Bread The good: Fontina grilled cheese with tomato soup changed my life. The bad: Wi-Fi doesn't work, staff is kinda... odd.
