EatLafayette Dish of the Day: Lil Daddy's meat platter

by Madeline Hurst

Ribs, chicken, pork and more can be found at this gas station gem

Lil Daddy's BBQ is one of Lafayette's many hidden treasures-it may not look like much, sitting on the corner of Evangeline Thruway, but this barbecue won't disappoint. Lil Daddy's offers a large menu with plenty of choices, and catering is available.

This mega meat platter comes with a baked potato or your choice of sides.

There are a myriad of combos to choose from, and you can't really go wrong with any choice. For our dish of the day, we have smoked sausage, pork, chicken and ribs barbecued to perfection with Lil Daddy's delicious seasoning and BBQ sauce with a baked potato on the side. Whichever meats you decide to choose, the side orders available are BBQ beans, green beans, potato salad, rice dressing, macaroni & cheese and cole slaw.

Barbecue sandwiches and poboys are also offered, if you'd rather have your brisket, pork or smoked sausage sitting on a bun. Save some room for dessert, because Lil Daddy's also serves up apple pie.
