Oriental Pearl makes absolutely the best shrimp fried rice in Baton Rouge. The shrimp are clean, plentiful and plump. The rice is flavorful. The food is always fresh. The staff is timely and friendly. I'm from California where Chinese food restaurants are plentiful. I have had a horrible time trying to find a place that makes good quality Chinese food here in Baton Rouge. Now that I have found Oriental Pearl . . . my search is over.

1st of all the good news . . . this is a great place to go with a group as not only is the food quality very high but it won't break your bank to take a large group here. In particular the Onion Rings and Burgers may just be the best in town. Now the not so go news . . . the girls behind the counter have the attitude of the "Soup Nazi" on Sienfeld. I mean there is almost never a smile and for the most part thank you is not in their vocabulary. When ever their is a mistake on your order they are very quickly to say it's the customer's fault. Never a, "sorry, I must have missed that when I took your order". On top of all this they have the gall to maintain this horrible attitude while standing in front of large pitchers clearly marked TIPS. If the self serve counter containing utensils is out of an item and you ask them for it, they quickly point out where you should have looked 1st instead of bothering them, not giving you credit for looking before you asked. Good place to eat but PLEASE Train the help as or one I don't know how many more times I will put up with their very poor attuitudes.

I've found with this restaurant chain is that it depends on the location. I have found that the Jefferson Hwy and Highland Road locations tend to have the best food and drinks. The others in Baton Rouge are just not up to the same standard. I haven't tried the one in Prairieville. Regardless, the service and the prices are consistently good in all of the locations that I've tried. I've given the above rating to the Jefferson Hwy and Highland Road locations only. The rating I would give to the other BR locations would be much lower.

This is one of my favorite places. I have yet to have a bad experience here. The food is quite good, especially the roasted corn grits. The corn grits are not something I would have tried on my own, however, on my first visit, I had two people urging me to try the dish. I am so glad I did! I'm absolutely hooked on the grits. And of course the other entrees I've tried, (i. e., ribs, pulled pork, rainbow trout and BBQ chicken) have also been wonderful. The hummus appetizer is also great. I mentioned the dessert menu not being the greatest because for a sugar fein(sp?) like myself, I do enjoy more varied choices for dessert. Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with this restaurant!

I've been to LA Boilers plenty of times to get crawfish. I've never been disappointed in what I got.

This is my favorite Chinese take-out around LSU. The lunch mini-buffet is a tasty and thrift lunch option

Very good Cajun inspired Mexican food. They have the old staples and many more inventive dishes. Their fafita steak is perfect. One of my favorite dishes is the fajita enchaladas. They have a great selection of sides. You are no longer forced to get bland retried beans, and rice with frozen peas. They have over 100 tequilas to choose from and solid margaritas.

Very good food at decent price. Restaurant is little small so come early for lunch. Staff really friendly and never let my glass empty.
