Alcohol? It’s a bar. They have alcohol. It wouldn’t be a bar otherwise.

Located across from the Old Theater in Downtown Lafayette, D.T. Kirby’s is great for everyone and, for someone from or fond of Chicago culture, it is a real treat. The drinks are good and there is a great selection, but the food and atmosphere are the real selling points.

The bar owner is a Chicago native who treats everyone as a long absent friend while serving up a pint of your choice.

The food, however, is what makes Kirby’s a slice of Chicago in Lafayette. The sandwiches are spectacular and the portions are large, so you get your money’s worth. It is also the only place in town to get a GOOD Chicago-style hotdog with the neon relish, sport peppers, celery salt, cucumber slices, poppy seed bun, etc… If you’ve never had one, try one, they are the only way to eat a hotdog and D.T. Kirby’s is the only place to get a good one in Lafayette. — Reviewer: Wright Frazier

    I stopped in this past Wednesday nite to get 2 Chicago Dogs to go. It was like being back in Chi-Town. Friendly patrons and wonderful service. It was like being back in Chicago area with a neighborhood bar. When you walked in the aroma of food just made someone feel like home. The Dogs where great and the onion rings with the sauce they serve is fantastic. Unlike some establishments in the area the bartender made me feel like a “Long Last Uncle.’ The waiters where polite and courteous. They even called me “Sir’ because of extended age. Can’t say enough. Anyone who is from Chi-Town area this is the place. Merry Christmas to one and all and a Safe and Happy New Year.

    DT Kirby is one of the best BAR’s in Lafayette, I believe it has the greatest bar food in the area. This place leaves you wanting to go back before your meal is fully digested. I love love the fried potatoes or their version of French Fries. I wish that it was a resturant that I could go to all the time, but since I have a child I cannot. I really do then enjoy it when I do get to go! I highly recommend, espeically if you like Chiacgo CUBS, BEARS and excellent food!
