BATON ROUGE, LA – University students will soon see a new food truck driving around campus and cooking up Cajun cuisine with a South Louisiana touch.
Both Zatarain’s and the already established Taco Churro’s are owned and operated by Triple B’s Cajun Corner, based out of New Orleans. Triple B’s also serves Cajun cuisine in Tiger Stadium, The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Smoothie King Center.
To meet the needs of students, both food trucks will start to accept Tiger Cash and Paw Points. Jimmy Saldana, partner with Triple B’s, said that should be finalized Monday.
Saldana said LSU is currently programming the registers and that they should be set up by Monday.
He said the Zatarain’s food truck is finalizing the menu this week and should open in two weeks. It will have several options, including jambalaya and crawfish pies along with hamburgers and hot dogs, “but with a Cajun flair to it,” he said.
Trevon Williams, biological engineering senior, said he thinks adding another food truck to expand dining options is “interesting.”
“It’s good to have somewhere to pass by and get a little something to eat if you’re going to class,” Williams said.
Joseph Goodman, chemistry junior, said he likes the idea of having food trucks on campus but wants to see more variety.
“It doesn’t really seem like the one we have right now has all that much to offer. Zatarain’s would definitely be a hit here,” Goodman said.
Both Goodman and Williams agree the food trucks will ease traffic in the Union and bring more variety to the food options on campus.
“I like how it gives the students another alternative to eating in the Union or at the Northgate,” Goodman said. “I know that people kind of get tired of eating the same stuff in the Union every day.”
