If you have only ate at an uptown, fancy New Orleans restaurant when visiting, then you might be disappointed. This is a typical N.O, neighborhood restaurant where a family will eat.. It is not fancy. I am from N.O. and my wife and I still have many relatives there. We have been here several times. Food - Gumbo - a sausage and seafood (shrimp, crawfish, crab meat) gumbo, good an not too spicy. Shrimp creole - good, however, my wife thought it was a little to tomatery for her. Shrimp platter (we had 44 large shrimp w/o heads, sausage and potatoes). It can be shared as an appetizer for four people. We shared it and then shared a soft shell crab plate. Both were so good that my wife gave it the best compliment - "It feels like home!" N.O. style po-boy sandwiches (They come in 6" or 12" sizes)- Roast beef - Expect it to be sloppy with gravy. This is the way we in N.O. like it! It is the best Roast beef sandwich I have had outside of New Orleans! Shrimp Po-boy- 6" with 12 fried shrimp on it -delicious! The bread comes in from Gambinos bakery in N.O. One suggestion is to keep the bread in the oven longer. It will make the bread crispier. It may surprise some that they also have lasagna on the menu. N,o, area has many Italians and most of the neighborhood restaurants serve their version of lasagna. The chef gets all of his seafood fresh from New Orleans (the shrimp and fish do not come from China like many other restaurants in the area). This is expensive for him, but I am willing to pay a little more for this. However, the portions are large. If you want original N.O neighborhood food, this is it!
