Petroleum Club of Lafayette

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I hope you have a great day. For me its a so so day. I go back to school. I’m excited to see my friends and learn new things, but not looking forward to school school itself. So, let’s talk food. Last week one of my mom friends, Ms. Rachel, invited us to go to the Petroleum Club. The Petroleum Club is located at 111 Heymann Blvd, Lafayette, LA 70503 and it is one of the places I like to go a lot. People are nice, sometimes they have music, and kids are always welcome there.

To start I had the chicken gumbo. Mom and my sister had the seafood gumbo. It was delicious but it didn’t have enough rice. But we asked for more and they gave us a small bowl. Then I got a grilled cheese. I know that sounds kiddish, but I had to try it since Ms. Rachel said it was delicious. She was right. It was the third best grilled cheese sandwich I tried (first it my Dad’s, second is Ms. Rachel’s).

Then I wanted to try the bananas foster but there was alcohol in it. I know it evaporated. They prepared it in front of us, but I still didn’t want to take any chances. I give this place a 4.9, and that’s that ladies and gentleman. Have a great day.

The Kritic says:

  • 4.9 Starts
    • We went late, and we were the only ones in there. But the place is very classy, very nice, and they love kids.
    • The service is always great. They make things special and we always meet someone new. They are very nice.
    • The food is delicious.
    • The prices are okay if you think about the portions and how they add small things to make your experience better.

Jerk Can’t Be Express

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I hope you are having a great day. Sorry I haven’t been posting because of school, but no school today, so here is my opinion about a place I checked out last week – Jerk Express. Jerk Express is located at 1000 W Simcoe St., Lafayette, LA 70501 and is open everyday of the week except on Mondays.

The inside was really nice, it gave me a Jamaican vibe, but they did not play any Caribbean music thou. I was very excited to taste the food, but when I got it I was disappointed. I ordered jerk wings and my mom ordered jerk chicken with rice and yams. The food was way too spicy and the jerk sauce had too much vinegar. That was in no way, shape, or form jerk chicken. My dad is from Grenada, my mom friends are from Trinidad & Tobago, Bahamas, Antigua, St. Kitts & Nevis, Haiti and Jamaica. I have tasted jerk chicken cooked by different people and that was definitely not jerk chicken. It missed the typical sweetness that all jerk chicken have. But it still tasted good.

That’s that ladies and gentlemen. Check my blog tomorrow too because I will be on vacation still and I will post something.

The Kritic says:

  • 2.5 Starts
    • The place looks cool, but they don’t have tables and they have a big TV but don’t have music or movies from the Caribbean.
    • Service was fast and one of the owner’s, Ms. Stephanie, was very nice. I enjoyed talking to her.
    • The prices are also okay.
    • The food wasn’t what it was supposed to be, but it tasted okay. It was very spicy and maybe kids won’t like it.

Aztecan American

Hello ladies and gentleman, Kritic here, with another review. This time, on another assignment for EatLafayette. I went to checkout Aztecas Mexican Cuisine located at 3535 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy, Lafayette, LA 70503.

The place looks cool. It has some cacti and it looks like a Mexican cantina. It was a relax vibe, but when I thought of Aztecas, I thought Aztec culture and history because i was studying it in school. I thought the place would have more pictures of temples, the big Aztec calendar and other artifacts. I think they should add more stuff about that. But lets talk about the food.

I ordered the beef and chicken chimichangas, the portion was so big and delicious. I also tasted my Mom’s chicken fajita and I loved it. The drinks were okay, the service was nice and they had stuff for my sister to so I give this place a 4. That’s that ladies and gentlemen.

The Kritic says:

  • 4 starts:
    • Cool decoration, but not the Aztec look that I expected. It was more a mix of American and Mexican.
    • The food was also a mix of American and Mexican and it was absolutely delicious. Big and tasty portions.
    • The prices were okay, but my food was complementary because I was on assignment for EatLafayette.
    • Service was excellent.
    • It’s a nice spot to bring your family and enjoy good times.

Acadiana Po-Boy Festival

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. Do you know what event is going on tomorrow? Something fun, something cool, something that you can’t miss. Do you know what? The Acadiana Po-Boy Festival. It will take place downtown, in Parc Sans Souci, that’s in 201 E. Vermilion Street, Lafayette, LA 70501.

Last year I got to judge this event and it was a blast. Here are some pictures but also my five reasons why you should go to the Acadiana Po-Boy Festival.

  1. It is free!!!!! The po-boys cost money, but you can go check it out for free.
  2. Po-boys are a must when you visit Louisiana, now imagine having more than one po-boy to taste?
  3. The variety of po-boys is huge, and they all taste so good.
  4. They will have music and is good to have music while you play.
  5. This event is for the family. Kids get to jump and have fun with their family.

That’s that ladies and gents. Make sure to check it out and try not to eat as many po-boys like I did last year.

Aussie Land In Acadiana

Hello ladies and gents,

I hope you are having a great day. So I went to Outback Steakhouse located at 1600 West Pinhook Drive, Lafayette, LA 70508 and it was tremendously good. I ordered the ribs and Aussie fries with lemonade. Mom ordered lobster tails, and my sister ordered chicken tenders. I also ordered the Joey Sirloin, well done of course. It was all delicious, but the lemonade was a little watery. The fries were crispy which I loved. But what I really loved was the bread and butter. My sister and I decided to time them, to see how long it would take them to cook our food, and guys it literally took less than twelve minutes from the time we ordered to the time we got our food.

Their children’s menu was also fun. We got to know more information about Australian animals, we played games, and we googled facts about biggest fish and reptile in the world.

In my book I give outback 4.5 starts ladies and gentlemen, and that’s that. Have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 1/2 Starts
    • The place had a relaxing feeling, I liked it.
    • They had a menu for kids with a lot to chose from, took me a minute to pick. I ended up picking two things.
    • The food tasted great and it was prepared fast.
    • Our server kept forgetting few things, but the service was nice and when I asked him a question he answered me, not my mom.
    • Prices were okay mom said.

Crazy Chicken

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I hope you are having a great day so I went to the new spot in Lafayette, Louisiana, El Pollo Loco located at 3808 Johnston Street. The buzz and all the hype about this place was legit. It was packed, but still clean. They had fast service and the food it’s like fast food but healthier. Outside the tables had nothing set, no napkins, no condiments, we kept having to go in and out. But the mac & cheese was delicious. The chicken was crispy, soft, and tasted great. I had a lemonade it was normal, but mom was all excited they offered Vitamin D water. I also had the perfectly melted cheese quesadilla, tasted the rice, pinto beans, and the corn. It tasted like home food. However, the queso dip was ok, I expected more. Also, the chips really had nothing to it. Also, the churros were not my favorite, too much oil. I give it 4.0 starts for a fast food restaurant. Well that’s that ladies and gents.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 Starts (for a fast food restaurant)
    • The place was clean and the decoration was nice
    • The food tasted like a home meal, fast food but kinda healthier
    • I liked that they had many people that could speak Spanish
    • The prices were good

Illegal To Be So Delicious

Hello ladies and gents hope you are having a great day. So, some people (my friends at school) wanted me to share my opinion about Izzo’s Illegal Burrito. Lafayette has two locations, one on Ambassador and another on Johnston street. The one on 2010 Johnston St, Lafayette, LA 70503 is my spot. I love this restaurant and can’t have enough of it. It’s perfect for a quick delicious and still healthy bite. I always get a chicken quesadilla, chips and queso, and a lemonade. They take their time, but the cheese is melted, the chicken cut the way I like and well cooked but not burned. The queso sauce is also delicious with the chips not too thin or thick, just perfect. On Mondays they have activities for kids and adults can choose what they want in their burritos. I really like this place and how they ask me, not my mom, what I want, how I want it, and take their time to explain the stuff to me. For this and the whole atmosphere of the place, Izzo’s Illegal Burrito gets a 5 starts, is just that good.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • This is a very laid back and fun spot to bring your kids. I love when Mom says we can go there.
    • The food is fast, but is still healthy. It all depends on you.
    • The prices are good. The service is great.
    • They have activities for kids, special prices for kids and a great menu for kids.
    • The place is clean and the decoration is cool, kinda like a sports place.
