Louisiana food at the finest. People come from around the world to eat here! Amazing meat pies! Great red beans and rice. Some of the kindest servers ever!

Meat pies are excellent. Bought some frozen to bring home. Crawfish pies good as well, but we liked the beef better. Gumbo was great too, as was the broccoli casserole. Kids liked the chicken strips a lot, but did not care for Jazzy Fries, but their friend did. Salad bar nothing special, iceberg lettuce and the basics, but that's not... More

Ok, as long as I have lived in Louisiana, I have been eating meat pies- yum. I have also always heard that if you want a real meat pie, you go to Natchitoches and eat at Laysone's. So we did. The service was great and super friendly. We ordered one beef, one crawfish and an order corn fritters. Hands down,... More

Came for breakfast and had meat pies since we can't get enough of them while here. Everything was good but service was really slow. They were busy getting ready for the festival weekend so understand but would have liked coffee being refilled!

Staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly. The crawfish meatpies were a hit; the meatpies, not so much. What will keep us from returning -- dirty bathrooms.

Sorry the Meat Pie was not to you liking but glad you enjoyed your Crawfish Pie. I just wanted to apologize for the restroom upkeep. The "one holer" as alot call it is cleaned every 2 hours. However it gets a huge amount of use on Saturdays during the lights and is sometimes hard to get in there to clean.... More

If you are in Natchidoches you must visit this restaurant. Lasyone's is a fixture that has been serving its famous meat pies since 1967 for good reason. The meat pie crust was crispy on the outside and the filling was perfectly done though it could have been a little more spicy to suit my taste. Red beans and rice were... More

We ate here twice during a two day trip in Natchitoches...yes, it was that good. Try the meat pies, and the onion rings. Friendly and quick service, delicious food!

Family tradition to stop for a meat pie after shopping the Craft Market and the wonderful shops on Front Street. Each time, I vow to try something new from the menu, but a trip to Natchitoches is a special day and tradition wins out!

We had a big group of about 24 high schools kids and an equal amouont of parents for dinner the night before the cross country state championships in Natchitoches this past Monday night. We had arranged for this big group (well ahead of time) in their big room upstairs with a buffet dinner of pork, chicken, rice, and vegetables for... More

On a random outing my husband brought me to Lasyone's. I would never go because I am not a fan of the meat pie, just my personal preference. However, I must say their menu provides a variety of choices that should satisfy any palate. We started with the fried green beans. The batter, though a bit plentiful, was flavorful and... More
