We all know Louisiana has great food, and everyone has their favorites in every region. But somehow, New Orleans seems to get most of the attention, as far as great restaurants go. We have fabulous restaurants right here in Acadiana, and our region of the Bayou State is not the only location that people travel from all over the United States for to enjoy the southern delicacies that we all love.

Thrillist came up with 11 delicious destinations that aren't in New Orleans, and two Acadiana restaurants made the list. Of course, feel free to add in your own fabulous dining destinations, and let us know where they are. Bon Apetit!!
