This is a casual restaurant serving dine-in or take-out for lunch and dinner. Their recipes are very nearly addictive and are right on point with the cuisine I have experienced many times in New Orleans. Be forewarned, however: there will almost always be a line of people waiting to get in...the restaurant does not take reservations, and will not place you on a waiting list until you are physically present. So, if you only have a quick 30 minutes for lunch, this may not be the right call. Otherwise, get in, take your time, and enjoy the offerings. I ALWAYS start with the fried alligator appetizer. I grew up with fried alligator, and this is almost identical to what I remember from my childhood (except that it is prepared popcorn-style, rather than strips). Their soups are incredible, especially the lobster and shrimp bisque and the gumbo (which you would expect). The entrees are numerous and, although I have dined here several times, I must admit that I have been thus far drawn to only the fried oyster Po Boy and the soft-shell crab Opelousas. Be advised: if your appetite is not in full "hearty" mode, you may want to split an entrée. The portions are quite large, and we almost always take away what we were unable to finish. In fact, I nearly start laughing whenever the server asks if we want dessert...so I can not, unfortunately, give any feedback on their desserts here. In any event, try it...you can always thank me later.
