Fat Pat’s doesn’t serve up a mediocre hot dog.
Fat Pat’s has reinvented red beans and rice and converted it into a potentially portable dish in a bun.
The Dome Dog is an homage to a South Louisiana staple. Fat Pat’s slaps pork and andouille sausage on a slightly sweet and soft bun and smothers it in homemade red beans. For a finishing touch, it’s drizzled with creole mustard — perhaps a little too much, so ask for a small drizzle. For only $7.64 (or $3.50 on Sundays!), it’s a filling meal served with fries — or substitute the fries for the best sweet potato fries in town.
The Fat Pat’s hot dog menu is not restricted to plain all-beef hot dogs. Try the Milwaukee brat for a taste of the Midwest, or the queso dog for a trip south of the border. Find the original Fat Pat’s at 626 Verot School Road or the new branch at 117 Westmark Blvd. Check out the entire menu online here.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
