Good food, decent prices, nice waitstaff. It was a fun and tasty pit stop on our way into the CBD / quarter. We had seafood (crawfish boil and fried oyster plate) but the pizza looked delicious too!!! We were tempted to get one to go!

Saturday afternoon lunch was a super fun experience. Locals filled the place dining on seafood Po-boys, Pizza by hand, and other items so typical of fun New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner. I shall return for sure.

I love this restaurant. I can never decide what to get. Po Boy, pizza, salad, dinner plate. Sometimes, I get 2 things and share. Or take some home. It is nosy, so not a place for date night. But good with friends and family.

If you visit R&O's you will not be disappointed. I've tried several of their menu items and I have not been disappointed by any of them. You can order seafood, pizza and even some Italian dishes - they are all excellent.

The twelve of us were seated quickly and service was excellent. The fried crab claws were very good. Everyone had something different but I was disappointed they were out of stuffed artichokes. Poor boys are good and bread is wonderful. I had the eggplant with...More
