My first experience at Judice Inn was in the late 40's when I was in my early teens. It was Lafayette's first hamburger place. I can return there after all this time and it is still very much the same, same good sauce on hamburger, which is not the super size hamburger you find at other hamburger spots. Atmosphere is...

We went to Judice Inn for the first time since they painted and put in new tables. It looks great, of course I always loved it the way it was. The important thing is that the burgers are still wonderful and the guys who work there are still as nice as they have always been. It's hard to believe that... More

Excellent, old school burgers in a place that dates to the 1940s. In keeping with that '40s feel, there are only chips available to accompany burgers, so you might well be disappointed by the absence of French fries. But the burgers will make you vow to return again and again.

A staple of Lafayette for many years, this is a great place for a lunch burger or a day after partying burger. A small and simple menu (no fries, just chips), but plenty to choose from and top it all off with soft-serve ice cream.

A part of the fabric of Lafayette. It's not fancy but it is always a must when we return to town. Lots of memories of times and people we ate these. Consistently great simple food. A good example of "less is more". More taste of the food without all the hoopla..we are going this weekend and I can't wait. We... More

This is an all-time favorite for local hamburgers. The burgers are small but good with nothing fancy on them. The venu is small so if you go at lunch time you'll have to wait in line.

I get really excited when I know I am returning home for a visit because that means I get my Judice Inn Fix. By far the best local hamburger joint in town. It's different and you cannot find it anywhere else!

Remember that little hole in the wall hamburger joint that had the best burgers growing up in a small town? This is the Lafayette version of that same restaurant. The menu is limited; burgers, chips and drinks. But if you want a true burger, not some fast food processed meat, you need to stop here. They do one thing, and... More

Best homemade burgers in town in my opinion. Small spot that has been the same for years. No fries though, chips will have to do but the burgers are definitely worth it!!!

Very limited menu. No fries just chips. This is really one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. It will be a regular stop from now on.
