We had a tour guide recommend a restaurant where the locals eat, called Coops. My husband and I both had the taste plate and it was delicious!! The best food we had the whole time we were in New Orleans. Highly recommend Coops!!

Food cooked outside in alley, tasted good until you realized it was prepared in filthy surroundings. Made me want to vomit.No photos allowed , I see why.

Divy, dark, cramped, and kind of loud… and one of the best places we ate in New Orleans. The food is fantastic (get the Jambalaya) and the service is great. Can’t say enough good about it and can’t wait to go back.

There was a long line to get in so it took awhile to be seated. The place is very small, a little crowded for me. The food was good, the decor funky (looks like a dive bar). Overall not too bad for the long wait!

Coop's Place is a hole in the wall place. You will bypass it if you are not careful. The food is great. I had fried chicken with jambalaya and it was delicious.

We spent four days in New Orleans and this was by far the best place we found to eat. Good food at a reasonable price and good craft beer as well. Service was excellent and good background music that was not too loud.

My husband and I really enjoyed our meals at the Coop's place. Jambalaya and gumbo were delicious and full of meat or seafood. No waiting line when we went (maybe we were not there during high season?). The service was great to us. Nothing negative...More

Awesome lunch. Fried chicken served with the rabbit jambalaya was legit. Some of the best fried chicken I have ever had and the jambalaya was the perfect texture with a nice spice to it. Order it and you will understand what I’m saying. Wife had...More

Just because it’s a dive don’t run away. The lines outside indicate it’s worth the wait. Super French Quarter atmosphere; food was great and impressive menu; smoke their own sausage onsite; friendly helpful staff. Overall, worth a visit for sure and very easy on the...More

Friendly staff served me truly terrible food. Based on some reviews, I was expecting to be wowe.. As I was unable to make my mind up between several dishes, I ordered a cup of gumbo and the tasting plate as it included jambalaya, fried chicken,...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
