This food has to be eaten to be believed! My husband and I both agree that of any trip we've ever taken, the best food was in Louisiana, and Johnson's was the best we had in Lafayette. We ate here both days we were in town, and would have eaten once more if they were open on Sunday, the day we left (everyone needs at least one day off, though, right?). We ate po boys (garlic sausage and smoked brisket) and the meat was so tender and seasoned just perfectly- the bread was wonderful also. We had heard of boudin and the guy (very friendly) who took our order gave us a sample to try- needless to say we liked it so much we ordered that too. The next day we tried the bbq plate lunch (again, fantastic!) - they offer either one rib or two and unless you're starving or have a pretty big appetite, the one rib was enough for us (you also get two sides with your meal). The prices are very reasonable and the quality of the food is outstanding. They offer several cold drinks, but we tried the Swamp Pop bottled drinks and liked those, too (for those who don't live where you can buy Swamp Pop readily, World Market sells them seasonally). When we go back to La we'll definitely be stopping at Johnson's again.
