The food is delicious and the portions are a good size for the money. No matter which location you visit you will definitely get your money's worth. Cajun food is the best and they have a wide variety.

My grandson and I went last year. This was incredible. The sandwich I had was delightful. Nathan said it was called a po-boy, and now whenever I am in a real southern place, I always order a po-boy (if they know what that is of course!) . The Coleslaw was crisp, and seemed fresh. Overall, a 4/5 is justifiable here.

Great welcoming atmosphere. Good portions and great food! Crawfish etoufee was good and sausage and chicken gumbo was delicious. Po Boys are for the next trip most.

Located around the block from where I was staying I got the jambalaya, cornbread and red beans and rice to go. It was all Excellent. I was craving the jambalaya for the next two days but couldn't get back until Sunday and they were closed. Will definitely make it a priority next time.

The tables are well worn (but clean) and in general looks like it might require an upgrade or remodeling. However, after entering, waiting in line and ordering,... More

For starters I have been ruined on Louisiana style food by neighbor who is a New Orleans Transplant. With that said this was great food, price was right and I highly recommend getting the Gumbo, Jalapeno Corn Bread and Green Bean side.

I had fabulous jambalaya and two sides. They serve both buffet style for their specials and other items to order. They were fast and the food was delicious.

It's not fancy ..Loved the chicken sausage gumbo and jalapeño cornbread! Authentic Louisiana cooking. Closes at 9, go for lunch or early, just go. Neighborhood us inner city in transition, it's ok! 1988 established, must be good or it wouldn't be!! Have bread pudding to go!
