Testimonials for DATS on Grant
I lived in Bloomington for 7 years, from 2004-2007 and 2009-2011. In all that time, I only found a few restaurants that I really loved: Le Petit Cafe, Snow Lion, and some others. But above them all, easily, was Dats. This is an unsolicited testimonial that I'm only writing because I was feeling sentimental, so trust me when I say that at Dats you get a ton of very filling food for an excellent price (and the leftovers are awesome), and what's more-- the food is exquisite. The bourbon chicken stew is one of the best things I've tasted in my entire life. The datwich and voodoowich are incredible, but what I like to do is get two things-- maybe the crawfish etoufee and the red beans and rice-- and some extra rolls and make my own sandwiches as I eat. Always ask what's new or different about the menu, because you'll be thrilled when you try the corn and rice or, especially, the thai peanut etoufee (spicy!). The thing I miss about Bloomington the most is not campus life, it's not the lack of responsibility, or even the college girls. It's Dats.

I spent a few years for graduate school in Bloomington in the 90's. I try to get back once or twice a year, and I have a short list of must-visit, favorite restaurants. Dats has complicated things for me, since now I have to squeeze a meal in there in addition to my old favorite haunts. The food's that good, and the old house is a great, cozy atmosphere to dine in.

This is my favorite place in town. The food is always good and ready quickly. I could literally eat at Dats everyday. My only gripe is trying to find parking.

When my wife and I came up to Bloomington from New Orleans after Katrina we were sad and hungry.
We're not hungry any more.
I get a carry out and my car smells like I'm driving home to the Irish Channel on Magazine.
