    El mejor ambiente pero sobre todo la mejor comida tradicional de Louisiana. Eso si preparense para hacer cola

    Awful service, everything is breaded & fried, nothing to write home about. Don't waste your time or money, unless you're only stopping for a beer (but you can do that anywhere).

    Get the tasting plate and play some random music on the jukebox. Pretty decent food for the touristy area you're in.

    Really inexpensive local hangout. Cajun fried chicken, Shrimp Gumbo and Seafood Platter are so delish! Cheap wine and beer, too!

    Absolutely loved it here. Must try their fried oysters -crunchy,cajun spiced on the outside and so juicy inside! Get the taste plate if you want to try everything. But I'd recommend the jambalaya.

    Copious staff attitude doesn't really outweigh the food quality. (Staff openly criticised other customers in front of us - that's just bad however you look at it)

    Yes this is a DIVE and feels more bar then restaurant but the food that comes out of this place is true Cajun! I went here with 9 guys for a bachelor party and the food was great.

    We got the taste plate and the green beans. Honestly everything was okay... but the fried chicken was literally the best fried chicken I've ever had in my life. It was coated in heaven!!!

    We waited 45 minutes -- time better wasted in line at a true NO landmark like Acme or Deanie's. The duck quesadillas and jambalaya were lackluster. No idea what the buzz is about & I know Cajun food!
