Willies Duck Diner – Restaurant of Duck Dynasty

Willies Duck Diner – Restaurant of Duck Dynasty

Today, the children and I departed from Texas. I have a bit more I’d like to share about our Texas journey, yet I’m putting that on hold to share about our visit today to Duck Commander in West Monroe, Louisiana!

Yup.  We totally stopped by!

Being someone who isn’t too much of a “groupie” and often feels that it’s somewhat an invasion of privacy to visit places or people I’ve seen on TV, I thought it might be a little on the “stalking side” to do a stealthy drive-by of the Duck Commander Company building and backdrop of the hit television show, Duck Dynasty.  But I was wrong!

In fact, on the drive over from Texas through Louisiana on I-20, there are billboards encouraging you to take exit 114 off of the interstate and visit Duck Commander.  Who knew?  I thought they’d be encouraging people NOT to stop by!

And speaking of stopping by… it is SUPER easy to get to Duck Commander from I-20.  It’s literally less than a mile from exit 114 (Thomas Road exit), and then one right turn onto Kings Lane.  BAM.  You’re there!

Immediately on your left (after turning onto Kings Lane) is a large gravel parking lot that is for visitors to park in.

You simply walk right over to the Duck Commander building from the parking lot and there you see their (now famous) sign and to the left of that the entrance to their store (that we had no idea they had till we stopped)!

This Duck Commander paved lot you are walking across to get to the sign and store is their loading dock area.  Yup.  THE loading dock:

A stroll through the Duck Commander store is pretty fun.  It’s crammed full of Duck Commander merchandise (of course), and it has some great decorations.

It also has a few fun photo-op areas.

We perused the store for a while and then took a few more pictures outside where their two big buses were parked between the visitor gravel parking lot and the loading dock area.

As soon as we were done there, we skidaddled directly over to Willie’s Duck Diner for dinner!

YES, THEY HAVE A DINER NOW!  And guess what?!  It serves some of Ms. Kay’s best recipes!  AHHHHHH!

My sister-in-law tipped us off on this new diner (which opened in October), or I think we would have totally missed it!  You can’t see it from the interstate or Thomas Road at all.

To get to it from Duck Commander, you drive back toward I-20 and take a left turn onto Constitution Drive where there is a large Academy store attached to a small strip mall.  Willie’s Duck Diner is at the very end of the strip mall.

My son and I split Ms. Kay’s meatloaf, with a side of Ms. Kay’s mac and cheese:

OHMYWORD.  The meatloaf and the mashed potatoes and gravy were amazing!

Also amazing?  The chicken strips my daughter ordered off the kids menu.  I could have ordered those for myself, they were so yummy!

They also bring out a complimentary all-you-can-eat bread basket, complete with biscuits, corn muffins and hush puppies.

Then, we finished off our delicious dinner by sharing Ms. Kay’s banana pudding.

It was LICK-THE-BOWL good! (No, really. My son licked the bowl.  In the middle of the restaurant.)

But I got so busy telling you about the delicious food, that I didn’t even tell you about the great restaurant itself!

If you can’t read the bottom line of the above photo, it says, “Where Saying Grace is Encouraged!”  Love that!

The rest of the restaurant has pictures of the family on the walls, hunting pictures, and TV’s playing Duck Dynasty shows back-to-back.  There’s even a small gift shop where you can buy Willie’s Duck Diner merchandise. (No Duck Commander items were for sale here, so get those at the actual Duck Commander store!)

The whole Diner experience was wonderful!  And when you’re ready to leave, they even have their own way of saying goodbye:

The whole stop (including dinner) took us about an hour to an hour and a half.  But we got right in to the restaurant and we didn’t shop for very long inside the Duck Commander store.

It’s such an easy stop off of I-20, that you just can’t beat stopping by if you find yourself driving by!  And it’s even worth a trip to the area if you aren’t just driving by.  My kids loved it!  (And, okay… I did too!)

Frequently Asked Questions about Willie’s Duck Diner

If you’ve still got questions about willies Duck Diner, then these may help:

Why did Willies duck Diner close?

Willies Duck Diner, known for its delicious duck dishes and idyllic setting, unfortunately had to close its doors due to a variety of reasons. Despite the restaurant’s popularity among duck enthusiasts and locals, the increase in operating costs, such as ingredients and labor, made it difficult for the restaurant to sustain its business in the long run.

Additionally, the ongoing pandemic had a significant impact on the restaurant industry and caused a decline in foot traffic and revenue for Willies Duck Diner.

What is the name of Willie Robertson’s Restaurant?

Willie Robertson, a cast member of the reality television series “Duck Dynasty,” does not own or operate a restaurant named “Willies Duck Diner”. As far as my knowledge cut off, Willie Robertson has not announced or opened a restaurant under his name or related to his TV show.

Duck Dynasty is a reality TV show that depicts the lives of the Robertson family, who became successful from their family-operated duck call business in Louisiana. The show aired from 2012 to 2017 and focused mainly on their personal lives and not on their business ventures outside the duck call business.

Is Duck Commander still open?

Yes, Duck Commanders is still in operation. It is a company that was founded by Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Robertson family and star of the reality TV show “Duck Dynasty.”

The company specializes in manufacturing duck calls and other hunting gear. The business started as a family operation and it has grown to become a multimillion-dollar enterprise. It has been in operation for decades and continues to be a successful business.

It remains as one of the top manufacturers of duck calls in the market, and it also sells a variety of hunting and outdoor products. The company is still open and continues to operate its business.

Will Duck Dynasty ever come back?

It is unclear whether “Duck Dynasty” will come back for another season. The show aired for 11 seasons between 2012 and 2017, and it was one of the most popular reality TV shows in the United States during its run. However, the show’s popularity waned in later seasons, and it was ultimately cancelled by A&E, the network that aired the show.

It’s worth noting that the show’s stars, the Robertson family, continue to be active in their duck call business and other ventures, so it’s possible that they may return to television in some form. But as of now, it’s uncertain if the show will return for another season.
