"Steamboat Bills in Lake Charles, LA"
Steamboat Bills, along Interstate 10 in Lake Charles, Louisiana!! Take it from a fellow UNLV graduate (Hotel Administration, graduated 1992), you DO NOT want to miss this place! Louisiana Cajun food at its best! It even has a bit of an interesting pedigree...VP Dick Cheney is said to send his aides to Steamboat Bills to pick up some of his favorite dishes when he's in the area duck hunting. The owner, Kathy Vidrine, was the 2012 winner of the SW Louisiana Restauranteur of the Year award, and one publication (I forget which) included it on it's list of Top 10 Places You Don't Want to Miss When Travelling the I-10. If you get there during crawfish season, you'll enjoy the spicy boil...and don't miss the gumbo and the pistolettes!
