Evan’s Corner Store is a family owned business first established in 2015 at their Jennings location. When the family decided to open this convenience store on Ryan St., they didn’t want their new venture to be a regular gas station/mini mart. They want to offer Lake Charles something unique and out of the ordinary. They want to promote friendly service, and a safe, clean environment. They also want to provide a food experience not found at a typical gas station.
If you have visited Evan’s Corner Store, which opened in November 2022, you would agree, they have succeeded. In addition to gasoline and the usual drinks, snacks, vapes, and smokes, they sell a variety of healthy, international cuisine, high-end liquors, hand-scooped Blue Bell ice cream, and a fine selection of cigars.
The food now runs the culinary gamut from their freshly made breakfast croissant sandwiches, chicken/chorizo burritos, and Taco Tuesdays to upscale international dishes. Their reasonably-priced plate lunch menu changes daily, from local favorites like etouffee to dishes including Salisbury steak with a mushroom red wine sauce, homemade egg rolls with a spicy Asian sauce, potato cutlets, jumbo chicken wings, and anything that inspires their foodie kitchen staff. Their food is never fried or microwaved. While healthy is good, do save room for their bread pudding with whiskey bourbon sauce!
One look at the liquor selection and is like having a “spiritual experience.” They sell a wide variety of beers, wines, and most notably, spirits at all price points.
If you’re in Lake Charles and want a quick, tasty, healthy lunch at a good price, swing by Evan’s Corner Store. They want to change the mindset of what people expect from a gas station.
