D.I.'s

6561 Evangeline Highway, Basile, LA - (337) 432-5141
Beer trays heaped with crawfish emerge from the kitchen trailing hot spiced steam as accordion notes with a triangle beat bounce from the bandstand like runaway superballs. Set back from the two-lane in the middle of nothing but rice fields and crawfish ponds, far from any town or major highway, D.I.'s is a brimful measure of Acadiana.

It was only thanks to Cajun buddy Many McNeil that we found this place. Evangeline Highway (Highway 97) takes you way into the middle of nowhere.

One of Louisiana lesser-known specialties is the meat pie, here served six to a basket as an hors d'oeuvre.

Dark, murky, and dizzyingly aromatic: this is seriously good gumbo.

Unique as is the food in Louisiana, the Bayou State is also part of the Deep South; and accordingly, D.I.'s offers this very Southern sweet potato, crowned with melting marshmallows.
