    Anybody from Baton Rouge has probably drank a Frostop root beer in a frozen mug and knows how good it is.
    I hardly ever get by that area and there is only one in town.

    Last week I was in a Rouse's and they had 24 ounce bottles of Frostop root beer for $1 apiece. I bought 2 to see if it was the same and it is. The stuff was stacked in cases near the store entrance so I don't know if it's a permanent item. I need to go back and get as many as I can in case it becomes unavailable.

    Frostop has a mega burger daily special thats legit. The root beer is great. The floats are good too.

    Oyster poboy was always the best.

    Oyster poboy is my favorite even over shrimp but I never got one at Frostop. Have to try it next time I'm in that area. I don't think they are available on Waitr or Postmates. @Jmg since you live downtown do you ever go to the Pastime? I love their roast beef poboys. Last year I went there 4 or 5 times in one month just to get one but I haven't been back since.

    i love pastime. i wish it stayed open late so i could go drink cheap beer with old people.

    i am glad you asked because i ama big evangelist for downtown living, where you can walk to do things. i think driving all the time is bad for the soul.

    i like pastime, i like bengal tap room, i like the bald eagle pub, i like walking to the river to see how high it is, i will like it when the library open, i like riding my bike to mathernes.

    downtown is cool, more folks should live there. my parent live in oak hills and its nice but even to go buy a pack of smokes or 6 pack you gotta drive. driving sucks ass.

    pastime pizza is excellent. they like to advertise their "famous" boudin pizza, so i tried it and really is pretty good.

    suburbs have taken away our sense of community and made us fat and sad.

    I saw a story today in the Advocate about how a lot of the bars and restaurants downtown have gone out of business. It said not enough people lived downtown to support them all.

    I almost never go downtown but I did play at open mike Sunday one time at Jolie Pearl. Right after I graduated from LSU I lived on Costello Lane for about a year. Would ride my bike around the capital grounds at night.

    Do you have a car? If no what do you do when it's raining?
