Did a comparison visit

Went to check it against Frog City cafe as suggested by another reviewer. Pretty similar but I prefer Rice Palace; cleaner, quieter, better/faster service tho not as friendly wait person. RP had better selection and good salad bar but FC had better seafood gumbo. I'll happily go back to either... read more

We always stop at the rice palace exit 80 when traveling I 10 in la. I always get a take home of a Cajun dish as well to enjoy on down the road. Plenty of room for big rigs and a good fuel stop for the Rv. Beats the pilot and love traps of fuel prices as well. So filler... More

my family and I have been at the rice palace a lot but tonight it was different . A couple of minutes after we got our my dad saw a HUGE cockroach run across the floor and craw on one of the people at the table on the side of us. They need to look into the roach problem.

I didn't like my feet sticking to the floor, or the tables with scarcely 12" clearance. I enjoyed the company we were with.

Passing through the area, I got the envie for dessert. The Rice Palace was a pleasant surprise - 3 kinds of pie (including bourbon pecan) and 4 kinds of cake (including Red Velvet cheesecake), all at 4 in the afternoon. The three girls working were all super-friendly and helpful. Looked over the menu and it looks inviting. We'll be back... More

Okay somebody at work told me this place had the most amazing gumbo they had ever had. Those are strong words especially since we had just come back from New Orleans so I had a lot to compare. I wasn't expecting much when he mentioned it was a truck stop, but the place is surprisingly nice. The interior looks like... More

On the spur of the moment, we decided to stop for dinner rather than wait until we got home. The Rice Palace advertisement on the roadside billboard inspired us to stop and give them a try. It's a rather unpretentious place... "nice" but certainly not "fancy"... "clean" but not "sterile"... all-in-all, it had the feel of a diner more than... More

The food here is wonderful and the prices are very fair. The problem is that the casino next door provides a steady flow of cigarette smoke. We had to leave. If you survive you will leave smelling like a piece of smoked ham.

It is a very convenient on/off to I-10 at Exit-80, LA-13 to Crowley / Eunice The menu had a number of good choices but we decided to have the buffet. We wanted to sample a variety. The buffet included,... More

Stale cigarette smoke smell , extremely slow service and clueless staff. I had to find the host to find a waiter after 5 minutes of no one coming to greet us. After placing our drink order it was over 5 minutes to get them. 3 shrimp poboys and 2 cups of gumbo took almost an hour. The gumbo was decent... More
