Doe’s Eat Place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

posted in: Food | 1

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I like to eat good food. Meals aren’t just for sustenance, but it’s a time to sit down, entertain the tastebuds, and visit with friends and family. One evening my daughter was at a friend’s house, so the husband and I decided to take our teen son for a nice steak dinner. Men like meat, right?

Doe’s Steak House is located on Government Street. My friend and travel industry colleague Theresa Overby runs the place with her cool husband Scott. This is a franchise location of the family owned brand. We ventured outside of Zachary that evening and ended up enjoying a casual and comforting meal.

I’m a big bread eater, so it was no surprise I enjoyed the basket of drop-biscuits served at Doe’s. I made Paula Deen proud as I slathered creamy butter on this fried snack. I knew my men wanted steak, but I wanted to try the hot tamales. Oh. My. Word. As soon as I ate the first one, it brought be back to being a kid at Muffaletto’s Tamale Shop on N. Foster near my dad’s old fire station, just with a bit less grease.

Doe’s had me at tamale, especially since they’ve been using the same Doe’s Delta Hot Tamale recipe since 1941. I ended up going for the Crab and Corn Bisque, however, the carniverous male-folk went for the steak dinner with a side of potatoes. I tasted some of my husband’s steak and had to agree with him that it was a fine piece of meat. Just check out their menu to see the wide selection of cuts available.
