I had the shrimp and grits. Very tasty and rich. I prefer a little more spice but they were good. Hubby had the huevos rancheros and they looked yummy. Very good service too.

I like this place because it is kind of an upscale fast food gumbo place. Of course my homemade gumbo is better but this is good, not spicey which I like, and the beignets were not gummy. For a good, quick meal I would recommend...More

And that's about all I can say favourably about the Gumbo Diner. I usually eat breakfast there. I have decided to quit as the turn over of manager and other employees is indicative of a lot more. How can you mess up eggs and sausage?...More
