Ambiance: A nice store run by hard working people serving the grocery and meat needs of the people on the ever-growing fringes of Lafayette. Youngsville is a small town with tremendous growth in its present and future. Pat’s has been a part of the past and should continue to be a part of its future.
Price: $2.99 lb.
Presentation: Plastic wrapped on a turquoise foam plate.
Casing: Mostly crisp.
Rice/Meat Ratio: More meat than rice.
Texture: Kind of dry. Kind of mushy. Possessing some whole grains of rice and some that are ground.
Spice: Very mild.
Overall Flavor: This dark link has a pulverized quality to it and the flavor of the liver is pronounced. With some flecks of fresh green onion, it has a true home-made quality to it. “Full Flavored” is a term that few would use to describe this link.
Comments: Pat is a great guy and this family business is worth frequenting. Their chili-cheese dogs looked awesome. Let’s hope that Pat’s expands as Youngsville expands. Thanks to Buck from Portland, Oregon for his insights into how this link’s flavor played with a Pacific Northwester.
