Duck Dynasty has brought tourism to Monroe

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. -

Now you would think they could get enough of that at home, nope, David and Silva Delgado had to come all the way to West Monroe, Louisiana to watch Duck Dynasty on TV.

The Delgado's aren't crazy, they didn't come all this way to watch TV.

"All the way from Houston to eat, we found out they had a diner and we said let's go."

Yep and then there was a guy from somewhere out west who called Debbie at the snowball shop.

"Called from California. Are you Debbie? I just wanted to call and talk to you."

And boy did a whole bunch of people show up at Haskell's Donuts to see where Uncle Si ate all them donuts.

The Robertson's have been good to everyone in Monroe; the Red Roof Inn, the Waffle House and even the Chevron.

Duck Dynasty has been so good to Monroe they've put in a self driving tour so you can see the warehouse and the donut shop and the place the Robertson kids hang out after school with mountain man.

They have sure turbo charged the tourism business in Monroe. Willie's new restaurant is packed at lunch. The food is good but we're told that's not why most of them are here.

"Looking for husbands and you want one with a long beard."

Yep, the power of the beard in Monroe, Louisiana is enough to make you happy.
