    It may look like fried chicken, and some may even describe its taste as fried chicken; however, it has its own unique taste and texture. It's a bit salty, so mixing it with spicy mayo sauce will tune

    Located in the heart of downtown, NOLA provides the best Creole food with an ambiance to match. There's no better location for dinner and a drink on Mardi Gras.

    Tried the alligator, first time trying it. Was a bit chewy and over seasoned (too salty). All in all though the food and atmosphere was great

    My co worker told me this place was really good so I had to check it out for myself. I wanted some shrimp and grits. Atmosphere was cool but the meal wasn't out of this world. Had better for less.

    Make sure time is on your side and your very dependence on alcohol is low as well as your standards for good service

    Avoid the fried chicken & waffles!! It's not boneless and the chicken was overcooked and dried out. Yuck. The other dishes, well, they're really not authentic New Orleans. Skip this place.
