Restaurant Review: Fat Cow

With garage-style glass doors and a cozy, air-conditioned patio, Fat Cow is not the typical burger joint. Its rustic chic design and open-kitchen layout reveals a place dedicated to providing a real gourmet twist to the traditional American sandwich. Owned and operated by Natchez couple Doug Hosford, a trained chef, and his wife Karry, Fat Cow opened at the South Gates of LSU last August. The restaurant offers artisanal and seasonal salads and milkshakes alongside a wide variety of burgers and chicken sandwiches sporting rare but welcome toppings like olive salad, fresh arugula, Brie, other artisan cheeses and more. There is even the Hundred Dollar Burger, topped with foie gras, balsamic vinaigrette, Parmesan and truffle oil, for $15. Embracing its collegiate-friendly locale, Fat Cow is open for late-night dining. Click here to find out what our secret diners thought of Fat Cow.
