upcoming road trip chicago-new orleans

I would greatly appreciate the tips of the roadfood gastronauts,on my upcoming road-trip Chicago-New Orleans.I am planning to follow the "the blues highway by Richard Knight" viahighway 61.Not too fussed about upmarket eating,looking for real everyday food with that little extra magic.Looking for tips on good fast food and recomendations around Lafayette,St Louis,and all points between.Any places for hot boo-dan.

    You might want to spend some time in the archives. You will find much information on this much fabled (and definitely not overrated) drive. You can plan on stopping alot. No shortage of great places to eat. Have fun. Hopefully your "valve will not close" and you will be able to enjoy the trip.

    Lafayette:[url='http://www.prejeans.com/site.php']Prejean's[/url] is a little fancy, but food's good & atmosphere is casual.

    Breaux Bridge
    : [url='http://www.mulates.com/'] Mulate's[/url] and especially [url='http://www.pochesmarket.com/']Poche's[/url], which is real "RoadFoody." Just go north off I-10 and follow the signs.

    Cecilia: Landry's is a chain, but the food's pretty good, and Boudin King is great. Both are at exit 115 from I-10 on the north side of the highway.

    Baton Rouge: [url='http://www.belluescajuncuisine.com/pages/11/index.htm']Bellue's[/url] sells by mail & is in an iffy area (although on US 61), and makes most things to order for eat-in or carry-out. I stock up on all things Cajun there.
