I have known Don's since I was a young boy in Lafayette. Whenever we visit my mom in Lafayette we normally have a meal at Don's.
However, the food and service is not what it was in the past. The gumbo was just barely warm, but tasty. The fried shrimp were good. The fried crawfish were a bit oily. We ordered hush puppies as soon as we sat down, repeated the requests twice and they finally showed up half way through the meal! The waitress (Grissom) was not terribly efficient and she was trying to train a young new waiter but they were not attentive to our needs and requests in a timely manner.
They need to return to the old days both in food and service.
Don's is a good restaurant but not like it was in the past.
