    Everything is amazing. But if you have to get one thing, get the Jumbalya Supreme.

    Delicious food in a small spot, but worth stopping in. Had the jambalaya -- spicy, but highly recommended.

    I got the sampler. Only thing I liked was the fried chicken. Red beans/rice F-. 1st time I had gumbo/jambalaya/shrimp creole, all gross! Completely turned me off to even trying those again ever.

    Great value for money.
  • Christian B.
    The place looks like a totally sketchy dive, but the food is fantastic. The fried chicken says Cajun, but I didn't notice much "Cajun" about it, still tasty! Gumbo and Jambayaya are also great.

    Total dive bar, but the best jambalaya we had the entire time in NOLA.
  • Constantin
    We had Jambalaya Supreme and Crawfish Dinner. We liked it! The place has a very nice, simple old and old. Nothing fancy. You can feel a very distinct historic vibe - which is awesome.
  • Wilson F.
    As whole-in-the-wall as it gets, with few tables, a small bar and gruff service. But the food, the food... all the Cajun/Creole classics PERFECTLY executed, and fabulous off-menu specials.

    The taster plate is a great crash course in New Orleans cuisine.

    Get the fried chicken. I had the tasting plate, and while the rest were alright, the fried chicken was great. I know what I'm getting next time.

    It's super loud which if you're into the you'll like. The food was just okay. Some of it came out cold - maybe because it's FREEZING in there. The seafood gumbo & jambalaya weren't good.

    Actually, this is the first time I saw a RAT walking through a restaurant. They said sorry (?!).

    Get the taste plate which costs $14. It's shrimp creole, fried chicken, red beans&rice with sausage, rabbit&sausage jambalaya. Also came with gumbo. Just a lot of flavor. I’ll take it all at Coop’s. Read more

    The rabbit jambalaya is the best jambalaya I've had in the city. It's worth a stop in this dive (which I call a "dive" with the utmost respect)
