“We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that the burgers at the Best Stop Cajun Market are hands down the best burgers in Carencro and maybe even in the top five of all Acadiana!”

The combination of perfectly seasoned fresh green onions, freshly cooked patties, real cheese, and the freshest toppings creates a burger experience that is truly unparalleled. If you’re a burger enthusiast, this is one culinary delight you simply cannot miss.

Just a stone’s throw away from Prejean’s Restaurant in Carencro, Louisiana, the Best Stop Cajun Market has become the latest talk of the town. Known for its Cajun cuisine, this local gem has now added another feather to its cap – a burger that has foodies and locals alike buzzing with excitement. My wife and I, ever the curious foodies, decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about.

We’d heard the rumors: the Best Stop’s burgers were something special. “A slice of paradise between two buns,” as one friend put it. With such high praise, our expectations were sky-high as we set out on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

As we pulled up to the market, we were greeted by the aroma of smoked meats and spices that filled the air. The Best Stop Cajun Market is more than just a store; it’s an experience. Stepping inside, we were greeted with a warm welcome that instantly made us feel right at home.The market is a mix of a butcher shop, quick stop, grocery store, deli, offering everything from boudin and cracklins to an array of Cajun spices and hot sauces. And the best part? All the food is cooked fresh every day, ensuring that every bite is as delicious and authentic.

But we were here on a mission: to try those famous Cormier Burgers.

While we were eagerly waiting for our order, the owners, Steve and Shaina Credeur, surprised us by stepping out from behind the counter to introduce themselves. Their warm greeting and personal touch instantly made us feel welcomed and valued as customers. In an era where personal connections can sometimes feel rare, this gesture stood out to us as a testament to the genuine hospitality at the Best Stop Cajun Market. It was clear that Steve and Shaina not only took pride in their work but also ensured every visitor felt welcome beyond just the delicious food. This personal touch added an extra layer of charm to our visit, making it all the more memorable.

Our burgers arrived, and they did not disappoint! The first thing we noticed was that the sourdough bread was substantial and perfectly toasted. These were no ordinary burgers – they were a testament to the indulgent spirit of Cajun cuisine. The patty was a blend of ground beef and green onions, seasoned to perfection with a secret mix of spices that gave it a unique kick. Topped with melted cheese, crisp lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, mustard and real mayonnaise, all stacked in a perfectly toasted bun, it was a sight to behold. As if the burgers weren’t enough to tantalize your taste buds, the side of sweet potato fries with powdered sugar took our meal to another level.

That’s right, you read that correctly—powdered sugar on the sweet potato fries. Just ask them to add it; you’ll thank us later.

The patty was juicy and flavorful, with just the right amount of spice. The cheese was perfectly melted, the vegetables fresh, and the bun soft yet sturdy enough to hold everything together. Like I always say. “If the juices from the burger run down your arm, you know it’s good!” Next time, we’re going to throw on a fried egg and some grilled onions to take this burger to the next level.

In addition to their mouthwatering burgers, the Best Stop Cajun Market is renowned for its boudin and boudin balls, which are a true testament to the rich culinary heritage of the region.

The boudin, a savory blend of pork, rice, and spices encased in a sausage casing, is a must-try for anyone looking to experience authentic Cajun flavors. Their boudin balls, crispy on the outside and bursting with flavor on the inside, are a popular snack that captures the essence of this beloved dish in a convenient, bite-sized form. And if you’re an early riser, you’re in for a treat – the Best Stop also offers a delectable breakfast menu. From boudin ball biscuits, classic egg and sausage sandwiches, there’s no better way to start your day in Carencro.
