Being a native of Southwest Louisiana I tend to approach restaurant gumbo with a grain of salt and low expectations. Chef Rod's makes me rethink this approach. I thought the gumbo here was not only great, it was some of the best I have ever had. It beats anywhere in the French Quarter. The staff was also very friendly.

We tried this place since we were staying in a hotel nearby and it was rated so highly. My son liked his chicken sandwich. My husband didn't care for his shrimp poboy. Shrimp were mushy. I had the oyster poboy. I didn't like it at all. Oysters had no flavor. We come from Cajun country and don't care for okra... More

We were staying at the hotel near by and decided to stop by Chef Ron's for dinner. We were seated right away although the place only has a few tables and we took the last one. The service was very quick, attentive and friendly. The food was great, best red beans and rice that I have had. Highly recommend.

As a native New Orleanean and have tried Gumbo at some of the most well know local restaurants, no one comes close to Chef Ron's Gumbo Shop! Chef Ron's dishes are truly "Authentic". I go every time I can with family, friends and business associates, and each time try something different. There has not been a time that we disappointed!... More

This place is really good and very authentic. Small place that has a great, friendly staff and the owner always comes out from the kitchen to speak to the guests. Fish and other menu items are terrific. Skip the boring chain joints and check out Ron's, it's quite a find!

Don't be put ooff by the outward appearence. This small but comfortable neghiborhood restaurant is a real gem. The unique Mumbo Gumbo is worth the visit. The red beans and rice with a side of collard greens will make any New Orleanian remember the days of the "blue plate special"

This is a nondescript location in a strip mall next to I10. It was busy with both dine in and take out orders. My waitress was rushing to keep up. Only a few tables inside but I didn't have to wait. Not many vegetarian options except for side dishes. They do make a gluten-free gumbo which is a nice option.... More

Seen this place a million times. Went tonight in a tip from a fellow service industry colleague. Boy am I glad I went. Had the drum with Crawfish Etouffee topping with jambalaya side. Very good. Then the yumbo Mumbo gumbo (file' gumbo topped with fried shrimp) AMAZING then a shrimp Poboy as well amazing. Will definitely be back.
