Lasyone's Meat Pie Restaurant, serving breakfast and lunch, is the place to go for an authentic Creole/Cajun cuisine experience. A favorite with the locals and travelers alike, this family-owned and operated restaurant, famous for their meat pies, lets you feel like a real Louisiana native the moment you walk through the door and take in the aroma of good, downhome cookin'.

Lasyone's Meat Pie has been recognized and raved about by a score of magazines including Southern Living, The New Yorker, Glamour Magazine, and Gourmet Magazine. Reviews have also included book articles such as Jane & Michael Stern's Good Food, Jane & Michael Stern'sRoad Food, and Calvin Trillin's Third Helpings. Major newspapers such as The Houston Chronicle, Times Picayune New York, The Dallas Morning News, Chicago Tribune, and The News World New York have found their way to Lasyone's Meat Pie Restaurant. It has also been featured in many other national newspapers as well as international papers from France, Italy, and Spain. It has also made its way on the national airwaves, having been featured by On the Road with Charles Kuralt and Good Morning America with Bryant Gumble as well as many other statewide and Texas news broadcasts.

The meat pie, although famous and the most popular item on the menu, is not the only thing that makes this restaurant a proud favorite. The Cane River Cream Pie is another treat for the taste buds. Discovered completely accidently by adding chocolate milk instead of white milk, Lasyone experimented a little and must have decided that he had a winner because it too has won rave reviews. Adding to those already highly recommended fares is the restaurant's Dirty Rice, Red Beans and Sausage, Chicken and dumplings, and not to forget the well known Louisiana Cajun and Creole cuisine that is native to the Lasyone Family.

Family chefs James and his daughter Angela run the kitchen, so you know that all the food is prepared and made the old fashion way, home made. Vegetarian dishes can be made with no hassle. So make the trek to Lasyone's and sample the cuisine and friendly environment. With their down home atmosphere and old family recipes, you can't help but feel like part of the family, even if it is only for a meal.

Though the meat pie is as old as the Civil War, it wasn't until James Lasyone made this old time favorite famous.

Thirty-three years ago, Mr. Lasyone rented out the bottom half of a building that once was the home to the Phoenix Lodge #38, built in 1859.

While the masons still occupied the top portion of the building, James Lasyone started his Meat Pie Kitchen.

He convinced some of the town's ladies to sell him a few of their meat pies. He did a little experimenting and came up with one of his own.

People from all over the world have stopped in to try Lasyone's meat pie, from local towns folk to Charles Kuralt, Lorne Greene, Vanna White, Daryl Hannah, and a host of others.
