    Pick an unsuspecting member of your party and discreetly tell the server it's their birthday. They'll be surprised with Cock and Balls for dessert.

    NOLA frites were spicy and delicious. Better than regular fried stuff you get at other places. But then almost everything here has a spicy touch to it.

    The jambalaya is very good, but when they say spicy they really mean spicy! The corn succotash and fried green tomatoes are excellent sides as well.

    Looks like a crappy Bourbon Street knock-off, but actually serves incredibly good Cajun food & cocktails. Don't miss the Crab Cakes, Boudin Bites, or Jambalaya. Read about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Food was meh and overcharged. They add unnecessary element to the food to jack up the price, eg. etouffee with scallop. Gumbo was bland. Not gonna go back. I miss good southern food!
