BROUSSARD, La. (KLFY) – One restaurant with deep Louisiana roots announced today that it will be closing its doors this week, and another will open its second location in its place.
Trapp’s Cajun Seafood & Boil House announced on Facebook that its last day will be Oct. 1. Taking its place will be Prejean’s Cajun Restaurant, another local favorite offering many of those same Louisiana favorites.
“It is with great sadness that we announce that the building and land that Trapp’s is leased on has been sold by the owner, therefore Trapp’s Broussard will be permanently closing it’s doors,” the post said. “Tentatively, our last day open will be this Saturday, October 1st.”
“As of now, there are no plans to relocate and reopen Trapp’s. We want to thank each and every one of our loyal customers, friends, and family for the overwhelming support throughout the past 3 years,” the statement continued.
Trapp’s, which is located at 209 N. Morgan St. in Broussard, was home to live music, bingo nights, and of course food and drinks. Offerings include Louisiana favorites like poboys, gumbo, seafood platters and more.
One of the owners of Prejean’s, Tim Metcalf, told News 10 that the deal was what all parties were looking for.
“Trapp’s approached us,” said Metcalf. He also told News 10 that the real estate looked attractive, so it was easy to agree to the deal.
Prejean’s first location is located at 3480 NE Evangeline Thruway, in Lafayette.
