Black History museum of art @ Southern University. It is unclear to me whether they hold consistent hours. I would call before going. But this is a great place to visit and they have the Mississippi bluffs right behind it which is just BEAUTIFUL during sunset! The museum itself is no big and you can probably get through it in an hour. Be sure to time your trip appropriately so that you can catch the sunset - it's a MUST SEE! Also AVOID during Southern University Football game days.

Crack Chicken!! My friends and I always joke they have crack in this chicken because it keeps you coming back. So good, hubby and I exported the chicken back to WV with us when leaving. I suggest calling ahead and planning to carry out.

Great burgers, fries and milkshakes!! I just love this place. Better than 90% of the burger places out there. Warning: it is a hole in the wall but the owner is very nice and prices are reasonable.

Food scene
It's a Louisiana Thing... the sauce is like the best thing! Make sure you order an Arnold Palmer (half iced tea, half lemonade) to go with it.

The Food is D-licious! OMG, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My personal favorite is the beef brisket! Just. please. grab some food from here before leaving. You'll thank me! The only watchout is that this place is usually busy during lunch hours M-F due to local businesses patronizing... aim for an early/late lunch.

Another D-licious spot. Everything here is a great taste of Baton Rouge! My favorite is the Fried Chicken. Some of the best chicken I've ever had. Every time I come to Baton Rouge, I must stop by here. The owner is great, such a wonderful family man who adores his employees and customer. The watchouts: -this place is usually busy during lunch hours M-F due to local businesses patronizing... aim for an early/late lunch. -this place is only open for lunch -it is a hole in the wall, so don't miss it when driving bc it can be easy to pass -inside can be tight so i suggest getting there early ~10:30am -it's so goo sometimes there's a line out the door -food is reasonable priced (i think $12/plate), hoever they only take CASH

Avoid Brightside/Lee Drive During LSU Game Days!
In fact, if you're in town for the games and action, you'd be better off walking if it's not too hot. You will definitely get around faster on foot than driving in circles due to blocked roads. If you insist on driving, take the back road (River Road) where possible!
