If you were to pass by the construction site today, you’ll see the early stages of steel framing that began late last week. The framing phase is quick and will transition to exterior wall construction within the next week or two. The longest-running phase, typically, is the interior construction phase as there are many inspections during this process which can sometimes hold up progress. Regardless of the phase, the process has begun and they will be slangin’ meats before no time.

When complete, the new Carencro Best Stop will offer a drive-thru and outdoor seating and will be a part deli, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition to its signature boudin and specialty meats, customers can enjoy a range of delicious menu items such as their famous Brunella biscuits, BBQ burgers, dana burgers, penny poboys, and salads.
