Fat Cow Burgers

It’s hard to mention Fat Cow in Baton Rouge and not see someone’s face turn into a dreamy gaze instantly. Yes, these burgers are just that good.

Roul's Deli

Nestled in college town on the outskirts of LSU, you’ll find a purple and gold wooden building and probably no parking around it. Roul’s Deli is an LSU staple, and they have been serving up their massive burgers for years. And if you’re not sold yet, keep these two words in mind: shrimp burger.

Get there! 3327 Highland Road.
