On our drive out to New Orleans, from Austin, I was looking for a convenient half-way-point for lunch. Somewhere that we can get authentic Louisiana style Cajun food. Some research revealed Steamboat Bill’s, conveniently right off of Interstate 10, just beyond the Texas border in neighboring Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Though they didn’t have my beloved Jambalaya, they had just about everything else. We had a fine lunch on the way to New Orleans.
On the way home, we planned on a Chinese restaurant in the sort-of-like-Chinatown, Bellaire neighborhood, in Houston. But some extra stops and extra delays changed our plans. It was nearly 7:30 and we were conveniently near Lake Charles again. Dinner at Steamboat Bill’s it was.
Dinner time was significantly more crowded with a healthy line out the door. We had another excellent meal and I snapped this picture of the friendly staff as we were leaving. Memories of a successful road trip and vacation. Steamboat Bill’s turned out to be our first and last Cajun restaurant experience during that trip.
