Deep Fried Pickles


Many Cajuns grew up eating this appetizer at the Cock of the Walk Restaurant on Johnston Street in Lafayette before it burned down. The restaurant seemed almost famous for this dish. Many times, the restaurant’s parking lot would become flooded after heavy rains and once, a Kaplan man stepped out of his car and fell immediately under water! He realized a moment too late that he had walked right into a ditch.
