For a soul food place...this was a disappointment. The cornbread was decent. Veggies were soggy, watered down and gumbo tasted like day old food. Tasteless and not reflective of the rich flavorful cruisine of NOLA. Very disappointed.

Great soul food/home-cooking. Best fried chicken anywhere. Absolutely worth the trip to the East side of the French Quarter, and onto Frenchmen St. A must-stop on every visit.

This place is quite simple and not pretentious. The food is good, however, it is very heavy comfort food made with lots of butter. The Cornbread is delicious. I also really like the fried chicken and mac and cheese. My husband had meatloaf and said...More

It's always a pleasure welcoming you and your husband here! Can't wait to see you for more fried chicken and meatloaf on your next trip to New Orleans. All the best, Curtis, Owner

We stopped for dinner and the staff was very attentive. My wife had the house meatloaf and I the Jambalaya. Both were very good, although my wife said the meatloaf was a little spicy. We still enjoyed them.

I am glad you and your wife enjoyed dining with us! As we specialize in Cajun cuisine, some of our dishes can be a bit spicier than normal. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your New Orleans visit. All the best, Curtis, Owner

The BBQ oysters were delicious. Prices reasonable. I loved the gumbo! The greens hit the spot and bread pudding made you want to smack somebody momma 😂!
