Newks Eatery - Lake Charles opens it's doors to the public on April 4th and we need to be ready for all of the handmade deliciousness that is Newks menu.

Now, there are way more than seven things that you need to try on the Newks menu, but I can't just tell you to sit down and order everything. So, here is a list of my seven "must try" menu items to get you started.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They had me at "six cheese", but throw the "bacon" in there and there's no way I can say no. Every time I've been to Newks I get the Six Cheese Pimento with Bacon Mac & Cheese, whether it's a side or my entire meal I need this magical cheesy creation in my life. Seriously, it's like a little bowl of Heaven.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's called their "favorite" for a reason, and this salad definitely lives up to it's name! Just check out the list of ingredients jam packed into this baby, sliced flame-grilled chicken breast, Arcadian mixed greens, crumbled gorgonzola cheese, sliced grapes, artichoke hearts, pecans, dried cranberries, house-made croutons and made-from-scratch sherry vinaigrette.

Stick a fork in me, I'm done! Is it even legal it have that much perfection piled into one salad? Yeah, this is definitely a go-to, trust me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Newks Sandwich menu is stacked with everything from a Shrimp Po Boy to a , Vegetarian Club, but it's the Newks "Q" that get's my taste buds all sorts of excited. I start salivating as soon as I look at this sandwich! I mean, sliced flame-grilled chicken, thick-cut bacon, Ammerländer Swiss cheese and their signature white BBQ sauce, come on, you can't beat that!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remember the "Q" sandwich we were just talking about? Yeah, well, that comes in pizza form -- just so you know -- but, right now I am all about Newks Crawfish Pizza. Crawfish and pizza? That's like two of the best foods in the entire world coming together to make one epic super food, obviously it's going to be delicious. Seriously, this should be dubbed the official pizza of Louisiana, it just makes sense.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sometimes all you need is a nice soup and salad combo. We already know Newks salad game is on point, so now let's talk soup, specifically, Newks lobster and crab bisque. Oh my creamy, lobster-y, crab-y goodness! If the rest of Newks soups weren't so flipping tasty I'd say that I would only eat their lobster and crab bisque for the rest of my life, it's that good.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, caramel cake is a thing, and it's the only dessert you need in your life. When it comes to Newks, you definitely do not want to skip dessert. This magical masterpiece of cake-y, caramel-y sweetness will not disappoint. How could it? It's dessert perfection!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking for something on the lighter side? Newks red quinoa and kale salad is nutritious and delicious! Kale and red quinoa mixed together with sweet dried cranberries, edamame and pecans, topped with house-made apricot ginger dressing, umm yes, please!
