Back Yard Burgers brought their first and last Lafayette location to 3136 Amb. Caffery, the traffic-drenched site that Krispy Kreme built in front of Walmart. A Back Yard Burger is actually a good hamburger, but there's nothing special about it. And like other menu lines, there's no shortage of good hamburgers at all price ranges in this city. BYB is a thriving chain in Nashville, Memphis and throughout the southeast; there are two in Baton Rouge and one in Denham Springs. Meanwhile, the folks who run the La Hacienda restaurants moved into the building and appear to be succeeding.
