Worst oyster po-boy of my life! Surly service delivering a plate of what can best be described as "Regret." A large eight inch crouton, cut in half, piled not at all with lackluster, measly fried oysters and the most non-garlic "garlic sauce" in all Creation. The container-brick (I won't say bread) was cold, hard, stale and crumbled into shards when you unfortunately tried to bite it. I mean, how do you mess up bread?? But don't worry; you will be happy to discover that it is also overpriced! So as you wait an eternity for a bill, hoping your car is has not been broken into outside, you can savor their best drink: water. At least IT was moist.

CG,
If you weren't happy, why didn't you ask to speak to management or the owner to give them an opportunity to fix things up for you while you were at the restaurant? An old saying goes like this "If your food's not perfect and you don't tell us - we both lose." Right?

The creole gumbo was next level, but the BBQ shrimp PoBoy was out of this world. So incredibly tasty! If you visit NOLA don't miss the opportunity to eat here. It's an uber or cab ride from the French Quarter, but it's definitely worth it and you get to see more of NOLA's neighbourhoods. Highly recommended.

Stop in and enjoy an awesome BBQ Shrimp po-boy. Don't worry about the BBQ being too sweet or saucy - it's a wonderful mix of butter and spices. The roast beef po-boy with horseradish was also very good. The gumbo was definitely worth ordering, even though you can get gumbo on every corner in New Orleans.

Had the wonderful BBQ shrimp po'boys and fries...fantastic! Service was pretty good. Cocktails were terrible but I'm sure they're not really known for that. It was a little dirty, but not bad. Overall, it's a great little place.

After hearing from many people how good this place was I decided to give it a try. We took a cab from the Quarter it was about $12 each way. When we arrived a nice gentleman opened the door for us. It's a small neighborhood kinda place. You could tell these were mainly locals. I ordered the shrimp poboy & gumbo. The gumbo was great. It had a spicy roux with chicken, sausage, and shrimp which is a little different but it tasted really good. The shrimp poboy was good but not "the best in town". Overall I would go back but I'd drive, definitely not worth the extra money for a cab.
