    This happy wife is pleased to eat in a NOLA restaurant that is good, inexpensive and has light fair after a day of eating rich at French Quarter Fess. Love this restaurant.

    I always stop here when in NOLA. The boudin balls are absolutely amazing! Also loved the shrimp burger and red beans & rice. Careful with the margaritas; they'll sneak up on you.

    This place must get its name because you order one thing but get "somethin else." Otherwise my alligator corn dog was really good and the staff is polite.

    You can hear a conversation with your table mates. Noise level is acceptable. Just ask the wife seen here enjoying my company.

    Marinated grilled chicken is awesome. Oatmeal is way too sweet. Build your own salads are good and the bacon vinagrette is yummy!

    The food is uniquely prepared, however, unfortunately has no flavor. Also, coffee is not recommended here.

    Not the cleanest bathroom but it could be worse. Squatting is recommended over sitting.

    Not sure if it was because I went during Mardi Gras season or not, but this place is an outrageously over priced tourist trap.
