Delta Delights Culinary Trail
From savory beginnings to sweet endings, Northeast Louisiana dishes up not-to-be-missed fare with a Southern focus.
It’s quite easy to adjust to the relaxed pace of life and friendliness of folks in Northeast Louisiana. Along the Delta Delights Culinary Trail, you’ll find ample farmland and scenic drives, along which are restaurants serving Southern staples, such as cornbread and down-home vegetables. But you can also find Louisiana favorites, including terrific catfish and crawfish, and a few surprises along the way.
In Monroe and West Monroe, work up an appetite with a little shopping along Antique Alley. Then, head for a meal with a view at Waterfront Grill or Warehouse No. 1. Head west from Monroe on Interstate 20 to the college town of Ruston in Lincoln Parish. The area is home to Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State. Ruston is known, too, for its 18-block historic downtown district. Ruston makes for a sweet ending to your road trip. The peaches grown here are considered the best around.
