Great stop! Easy to get to, free parking on the street, friendly service. I had the 1/2 fried turkey club-sub; he had the Turkey Day Sandwich. Both happy. We got there during a slight lull, so didn’t have to wait long. People kept coming in so it got busier. A lot of regulars seem to call ahead for pick-up. Downtown Fayetteville is pleasant for walking around after hours on Route 95. The town seems to be trying to revitalize itself which is good to see. There are a few coffee shops, other restaurants, a bookstore and wine shop, to name a few. We’re glad we stopped there.
Looking for a late lunch enroute to New Orleans. Lafayette seemed like a good waypoint, but a lot of the places closed at 2:00 pm. When we found The Blue Dog, the empty parking lot was not encouraging, but we peeked in and found that they were open albeit with a limited menu. At that point, we didn’t care and chose three appetizers on the advice of Shane, the friendly bartender: the seafood wontons, boudin balls and cornbread is a house salad with Creole dressing. All were delicious, the cornbread (served warm in a cast iron pan with a buttery sweet topping) exceptional! We enjoyed Shane’s conversation, the art work on the walls and especially the food. So glad we found the Blue Dog!
