Small place. Great service. A little pricey, but worth it. We tried gumbo with fried oysters, shrimp po boy, red beans, and jambalaya. Everything was tasty!

Chef Ron is a very lovable adopted son of New Orleans, and all of his gumbos are on point everyday. I would highly recommend the Moncheaux (totally botched the spelling) for its uniqueness.

Simple place, good food. We had the gumbo sandwich combo. Make sure the look at the specials board in the corner. I regretted not ordering the smoked sausage grilled cheese gumbo combo. We chased our lunch with bread pudding. Worth the hunt to find!

Was in the New Orleans/Metairie area and asked a local where to get good gumbo. SO glad they recommended this restaurant. It was a small local place that was very very good. Great gumbo. But the crawfish etoufe was the best I have ever had.

If you want real authentic Louisiana food, you can walk around the French Quarter and try to find some, or you can just come here to Chef Ron's, and know right away you are going to get it. I even got a Gallon of Seafood...More
