At Favre's on the Bayou in the Kiln, the big portions are the big talk. They want you to get what you pay for and leave full.
"We do a lot of to-go boxes," Bonita Favre laughs. "In fact, one of my friends told me that's the only complaint they could find, and they can usually find some, is that there's too much food."
In the two years Irvin and Bonita Favre have been in the restaurant business, they've learned it's hard work. They admit that their famous Packer son has helped business, but the food keeps the people coming back.
The atmosphere is casual and very family oriented. There a dining room and a bar area, which is "packed" when Brett Favre and his Green Bay teammates play.
There are plenty of favorites. Stuffed ribeye steaks, trout amandine, spinach and artichoke dip, fettucine dishes with shrimp, or other pasta dishes. You can also find fried crab claws, gumbo, ribs and much more. They also sell a lot of bread pudding and brownies.
In true southern hospitality, Bonita says, "Just come out and join us. We'd love to have you."
Favre's on the Bayou is located on Kiln-DeLisle Road about 2 miles north of I-10 (exit 20).
