Don’s is best known for its boudin, a rather elegant pork-and-rice sausage with a nice pepper glow. It is sold by the link, warm and ready to eat, at one counter towards the front of the big, modern supermarket and butcher shop. In the back, adjoining cases of raw meat, smoked meat and sausages is an order counter where you can buy po boys, fried pork chops, fried chicken, and meat pies. Carry your trayful of lunch to a bare table in the dining area or to one of the picnic tables lined up outside along the side of the building.

Sunday is an especially good time to eat at Don’s for pork steaks that draw fans from Lafayette Parish and beyond as well as for half chickens and stuffed brisket.

The original Don’s is located in Carencro on I-49 Frontage Rde.
