THE “INN” WAS FIRST OPENED ON APRIL 5, 1947 BY TWO BROTHERS, ALCIDE AND MARC JUDICE. AFTER SERVING IN DIFFERENT BRANCHES OF THE SERVICE DURING WWII, AL AND MARC PHYSICALLY BUILT THE ORIGINAL BUILDING THEMSELVES (WITH THE HELP OF MANY OF THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS) UNDER THE LIGHT OF FLASHLIGHTS AFTER THEIR PRIMARY DAY JOBS WERE COMPLETE. WITH THE HELP AND SUPPORT OF THEIR WIVES (PEARL CORMIER JUDICE AND GLADYS BOURQUE JUDICE), THE BROTHERS OPENED THE BUSINESS ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET AND LONG HOURS. THEIR COMMITMENT TO PRODUCT QUALITY AND PERSONALIZED CUSTOMER SERVICE EXEMPLIFIED THE BROTHERS PRIDE IN THEIR BUSINESS. THE WORD OF THE “BEST HAMBURGERS IN TOWN” QUICKLY SPREAD THROUGHOUT ACADIANA AND THOUGH THE BUSINESS ORIGINALLY WAS CONSIDERED FAR OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS, THE RESTAURANT WAS SOON FREQUENTED BY BUSINESSMEN, LABORERS AND SLI (NOW UL LAFAYETTE) STUDENTS WHO THOUGHT THE DRIVE WAS WELL WORTH THE TRIP.
THE PRIMARY PRODUCT IS A HAMBURGER WITH A UNIQUE RECIPE SEASONED TO THE TASTES OF SOUTH LOUISIANANS WHICH UTILIZES A “SECRET SAUCE” TO ENHANCE THE FLAVOR. THE RECIPE IS COMPLIMENTED BY THE FRESH INGREDIENTS WHICH ARE PREPARED EACH MORNING BY FAMILY MEMBERS. ALTHOUGH THE MENU IS BRIEF AND RATHER SIMPLE, THE RESTAURANT HAS MAINTAINED THE INTEGRITY OF ITS FOUNDERS BY SERVING THE BEST PRODUCT POSSIBLE AND CONCENTRATING ON CUSTOMER SERVICE.
