While the Nicholls cafeteria always welcomes students with smiles and great food, eating at local restaurants is good to throw in the mix every now and then. This city has plenty of amazing options when it comes to eating out, so here are five of Thibodaux’s hottest restaurants (in no particular order).


Coco’s is a surefire choice if the craving for home-styled Mexican food ever comes up. This classic joint offers a unique atmosphere with its colorfully painted walls and metal trays and tables. The locally owned restaurant has some of the best food in town for its low prices. Checking out this “Mexican Food With a Twist” restaurant is a must.

Weeping Willow Cafe

Weeping Willow is a Cajun-styled goldmine when it comes to soup, sandwiches and coffee. Guys, this mom and pop cafe is one of those restaurants to which a girl will almost never decline an invitation. Aside from its date-worthy aesthetic, the food is actually really good and pretty inexpensive, too.

Grady V’s American Bistro

Grady V’s is locally famous for its insanely tasty high-end burgers, steaks and seafood. Grady’s, although on the more expensive side of Thibodaux restaurants, offers a reasonable price when considering the quality of the meals. Grady V’s, also serving as a bar, entertains a lively setting and atmosphere.

Alumni Grill

Owned by Nicholls Culinary alum Chef Minh Le, the cookout-styled Alumni Grill offers a menu full of burgers, tacos, barbecue specials and even salads. The Alumni Grill provides affordable, flavorful meals in a relaxed setting. This is definitely one of the better restaurants in the area, and it’s worth trying out.


Just in case you haven’t heard, Nicholls is getting its very own Chick-fil-A! After years of rumors about the beloved chicken restaurant chain making a return, the people of Thibodaux will finally be within reasonable driving range of the best chicken chain around. Chick-fil-A is sure to be one of the hottest restaurants around when it finally arrives; hopefully, the accompanying campus traffic won’t be too harsh.
