Some of the best food can be found in local eateries tucked away from bustling cities and popular chain restaurants, from hidden gem chicken joints to a diner serving up all the classics. The same can be said for burgers.
Cheapism searched for restaurants around the country serving up amazing burgers, compiling a list of the best hole-in-the-wall burger joint in each state. Using customer reviews, personal experiences and recommendations, the list is made up of "unpretentious, hidden gem restaurants that typically fly under-the-radar, especially those in small towns or out-of-the-way locations."
So which restaurant is considered the best hold-in-the-wall burger joint in Louisiana?
You can find incredible burgers at plenty of spots around Lafayette, but Judice Inn has been a tradition since 1947 for a reason, serving up its hamburgers and cheeseburgers with special sauce to all who stop in.
Judice Inn is located at 3134 Johnston Street in Lafayette.
Here's what Cheapism had to say:
"The Judice Inn has been serving Lafayette residents since two brothers opened it in 1947. It's especially popular among University of Louisiana students, since it's only about a mile off campus. Burgers come wrapped in wax paper, spread with a mustard and mayo mixture, and with an onion slice on the side. Unlike other burger joints, this one doesn't serve french fries — only local Zapp's potato chips."
