We wanted to try some gumbo and this place was close to our hotel. I loved that they had a choice without shrimp. It was delicious and prices were good.

went for a late lunch, and got in right away. I noticed this place was always pretty busy. Had jambalaya and crawfish etouffee, Liked the etouffee, but the rice in the jambalaya seemed mushy. Maybe that is typical, but not for me.

Thanks for sharing lunch with us, Kathy, but I'm sorry our jambalaya wasn't quite for you. Still, it's great that the etouffee hit the spot. Thanks for your thoughts. I hope you'll consider stopping by again next time. Yours, Gaylin McAllister, General Manager

We ate at this place three years ago and were delighted when we stumbled upon it again on our recent vacation. The cajun pasta and chicken andoulli gumbo were both great. They will definitely be a regular stop for future trips!

From what I can find online, they aren't open, but I would suggest calling to be sure [(504) 525-1486] as there are quite a few that will be open that day.

Description
Established in 1948, The Award Winning Gumbo Shop features a wide range of New Orleans cuisine at its finest. Enjoy fantastic customer service and great food. Patrons are also welcome to order from our full wine list including 30 Wines by the Glass.Gumbo Shop is located at 630 St. Peters Street, 1/2 block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter. As the name implies, gumbo is a fixture on the menu, but our menu also features Creole and Cajun inspired dishes that represent New Orleans' truly unique cuisine. Gumbo Shop was founded in 1948 in a former French Quarter home built in the late 1700's. The building represents a typical French Quarter layout with central courtyard and former kitchen in the rear. For the past 20 consecutive years, Gumbo Shop has received the "Best of New Orleans" best place to eat gumbo from Gambit, a local publication that relies on reader polls to determine the winners in all categories.
