We finally made it to Doe's last Saturday night and it was everything promised. Since we were with friends, we were able to try several starters including the famous tamales. They were great with the accompanying chili, but we surprised how much we enjoyed the angry shrimp and the fried asparagus. But don't fill up on these, or the sad little salad, because the steaks are huge. Ordering a steak by the pound is unique. I had the T-bone, my wife the filet, and our friends both had rib eyes which were surprisingly bone in. All were prepared as ordered and delicious. If you are traveling and can't take home a doggie bag it would be easy to over oder here. The only negative we found was the very limited wine list or this would have been a five star review.
Went to Doe's for dinner with my business partner because we wanted a good steak. We were not disappointed although you have to order all but the filets in 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2 pound steaks. They are bone-in so not all of that "poundage" is the meat. We had their appetizer specialty Hot Tamales which were great. The steaks were cooked perfectly but the sides were somewhat limited and not up to par with the steaks...that is the only reason I rated them at 4 stars rather than 5. Service and atmosphere were exceptional. Would highly recommend Doe's.
Stopped through Baton Rouge on the way home from vacation. Found Doe's on Trip Advisor and booked a table for our family. Rating this place is complicated... The food and service are absolutely five stars, but there are other issues that made me rate down. The steaks were absolutely cooked perfectly. The service was fantastic. The ambiance is really fun. The wine was wonderful (we ordered a bottle of the Bordeaux). My problem was that I had read that you could order smaller portions and the smallest steaks (other than filets) were 2 lbs. I had four kids (girls) with us. First of all everyone splits an order and there is still way too much meat on the table. You only get one side with the split order and so in each pair of us one person didn't get what they wanted (including me...I let my wife pick the side she wanted). At this price point, I would rather everyone order and get what they want than have to share meals and leave not completely satisfied. For the amount we spent at the end, we could have done Texas de Brazil and everyone would have had plenty of sides and multiple meats. So the experience at Doe's was fun but next time we'll go elsewhere.
