We ate at this Ground Pat'i for the first time on August 20th. There was five of us and we were there at lunch time. We were seated right away and got our peanuts and drinks very fast. The waitress was very nice and kept our drinks filled. We never had to ask for refills. The only problem that I... More

And that pretty well sums it up. It's not a great hamburger or a terrible one. The peanut shells on the floor is a fun touch but the slow service is consistent. The wait staff are mostly college students and their minds are probably elsewhere. I doubt tips on hamburger meals are very rewarding. Oh, and it is noisy as... More

This review is for the location on Kalstie Saloom near Super Target in Lafayette. Those of you who read my reviews know I go a lot further than just how the food taste and I have a tendency to rate the customer service experience more. This restaurant is not unlike many I have rated in the past. The food is... More

We chose Ground Pat'i this past Saturday evening. We were seated right away and drink orders were taken. 2 orders were special requests. The burgers were so,so. The grilled chicken was ordered without the bun or condiments. The cordon bleu had deli sliced ham and a gooey swiss cheese combination mix. Our service was not attentive to us or other... More

This place should be a fast food drive thru. The burgers patti was not home made. More like charbroiled frozen then cooked. Ugh

I wrote a review on this restaurant about 4 months ago that was not very complementary. This has always been a favorite but I really felt that it had declined in quality. Yesterday the food and service were both excellent, and what a surprise when you hear what we got. My brothers and sisters from out of town wanted to... More

Our first time visiting this place my cousin suggested it. I am so glad we went. I had the grilled shrimp and the flavor was awesome. You get plenty on your plate I could not eat it all. I did not try anything anyone else but they all raved about it also. I hope to get back to this restaurant... More

This review is of the Johnston St. restaurant - that being said, I can't imagine choosing to return here, especially with all the other food establishments in Lafayette to pick from. I dined with a friend at 1:00 on a weekday, and the restaurant was not busy, at all. The peanuts we were served were stale - that was the... More

My coworkers and I visited this restaurant on a whim one day for lunch, and I was so impressed I brought my wife back the next weekend. Great burgers and fried pickle spears. Pewter mugs keep the drinks ice cold almost forever it seems. Not bad for a chain restaurant. If you need a quick place to eat, I'd recommend... More

This used to be one of the three best burgers in town. Unfortunately it's not even close any longer. This was homecoming Friday at UL so we decided to go to a place where we used to eat all the time. Ground Pati was a treat back in the 19970's. You could smell the burgers a block away and it... More
