Dish of the Day: Lil' Daddy's St. Louis-style barbecue ribs
Case of the Mondays? Fix your day up with Lil’ Daddy’s St. Louis-style barbecue ribs.
The ribs spend hours in Lil’ Daddy’s slow-cook barbecue, leaving the dish so tender that the meat falls off the bones. In addition to its ribs, Lil’ Daddy’s offers smokey brisket, savory sausage and chicken, as well as a variety of ‘down home’ sides like rice dressing, beans or potato salad. Lil’ Daddy’s is located on 1339 SE Evangeline Throughway and is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
