Jefferson Street Pub's fish taco night and burger bar

Cure your mid-week blues with two nightly specials downtown

It's Wednesday and we are officially half way to the weekend - midweek is the perfect time to get out of the kitchen and try something new for dinner. Every Wednesday Jefferson Street Pub is dishing up its fish tacos for only $2 each and a two-for-one Dos Equis special. Each taco starts with a corn tortilla filled with crispy fried black drum topped with pickled onion and cabbage and a dollop of cumin crème fraîche. Now that we've moved on from frigid temps, these tacos are the cure for your winter blues.

If Mexican isn't what you crave, no worries - Thursday nights at JSP are just as tasty at the build your own burger bar. Starting at $7, you can customize your burger and pair it with fries and a beer.

The custom burger check list lets you pick whatever you fancy - IND Eats tops our burger with cheddar, bacon, avocado, tomato, onion and chipotle aioli with a side of cracked pepper frites. Wash it all down with a tall glass of Pabst Blue Ribbon as you enjoy an inventive dining experience at one of downtown Lafayette's best pub grub dining locations.
