This is a long-overdue review. We were in New Orleans for our cruise vacation last June 2017. Wanting to experience Cajun cuisine, we checked tripadvisor to see which restaurant ranks #1. Chef Ron's Gumbo is number one so we decided to stop there for dinner....More

I am glad I consulted with tripadvisor before deciding where to have dinner while in Metairie. I ordered the Chicken Jefferson and it was fantastic- the seasoning, the shrimp on top and even the way the chicken was prepared. Even the sides, which often seem...More

Looked this place up when moving down here. Rated highly online and for a good reason. Best gumbo in Metairie. Maybe even New Orleans. Poboys are good too! Pretty chill place so don't expect a fancy dinner.

Don't let the building fool you, the food is good. Place is somewhat small and was crowded- they have a large take out crowd. Flavor was authentic -my Mother was born and raised in Louisanna, and it tasted like my mamas'a!

Although the name is about gumbo, I am always in search of a good oyster poboy. I was so pleased with the poboy. The oysters were large, fresh, and fried perfectly. The bread and dressings used were so tasty. It was a great experience. Now,...More

The gumbo is great, but I would also recommend the fried chicken and the shrimp Creole.don't be put off if there's a line because they have an extra room to seat people. Service is fast and definitely worth the wait.
