    Where do I begin? Came here for Saturday brunch buffet. This is what they call a buffet. And they charge you $16 for this crap. It gave us stomach ache afterwards.

    My son asked if it was a family style restaurant. I said, no it's buffet. He said, but they treat you like family! Great service and the bread pudding may be the most addictive thing I've ever eaten

    Small place, overly packed, which means GOOD DOWN HOME COOKING!

    This Seventh Ward restaurant was featured extensively in HBO’s “Treme,” and it's perfect for a Creole or soul food lunch from the lunch buffet. Call for hours. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    THE best fried chicken (get it a la cart) and gumbo in town. Get them to go and stroll over to Armstrong Park for a picnic.

    A Tremé classic, where the dark-roux gumbo is chock-full of crab and sausage and the craggy-crusted fried chicken is sold by the piece.

    Great cafe away from the tourist zone. All dishes good esp po boy, fried chicken, gumbo. Staff v friendly too. Quite cheap too. Locals also go- a good sign!

    French toast. Awesome!

    Overrated! Service was unacceptably slow and the bread on my po' boy was stale. The bread pudding was awesome, but not enough to salvage the experience. You can do better for Cajun in NOLA.

    A little dive restaurant... but good food. The bread pudding is a must.

    If you want a real NOLA experience....this place feels like home. Everything is great. Try the Trout with Mac n Cheese. Love the sassy waitresses.

    Shitty tourist trap—don't waste your time for typical New Orleans terrible service.

    Make sure to try the catfish and grits or the french toast. They were both perfectly cooked, and the french toast had a hint of cinnamon and ample powdered sugar. Read more
