Where to eat near campus before the football game on Saturday

    LSU football fans have been waiting for the first home game of the season pretty much since the last home game in November 2018. But in the nearly 300 days since that final fall tailgate, the LSU area has added multiple restaurants, bars and eateries fans can visit while in town for the game. 

    Whether you’re heading to Death Valley and looking for a quick bite, or plan to watch the game while eating something tasty, here is a roundup of new places where you can grub down during game day. 

    Located about five minutes outside campus, the area around the intersection of Burbank and Lee drives continues to expand with new businesses and eateries. 

    Atomic Burger, the New-Orleans burger joint, opened its second-ever location near the intersection in April. Brothers Joe and Nick Spitale, who attended LSU in their college years, co-own the restaurant and thought Baton Rouge would be the perfect place for customers to enjoy what Atomic Burger has to offer—burgers, fries and liquid nitrogen-chilled milkshakes.

    Uno Dos Tacos also opened at Arlington Marketplace in March in a space it shares with po-boy and wing restaurant Bayou Boyz. The fast-casual spot serves tacos, quesadillas, nachos, fajitas and more in addition to a variety of drink options.
