    Mr. T Famous skirt steak, quesadillas and the fried chicken and waffles are all good choices. Hurricane or raspberry mojito for drinks.

    Words cannot describe what an amazing atmosphere NOLA has created; it's authentic New Orleans vibe and Creole-influenced food, couch & table atmosphere, and fantastic drinks make this a Palo Alto gem.

    Close enough to a sports bar, if The Old Pro next door is too crowded.

    I come for drinks and small plates. The steak, ahi tacos, crabamole, and jambalaya are tasty. Costco has gift cards at a discount.

    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.

    Try the "Mr. T's Famous Skirt Steak", a very good mix of sweet, spicy, meat, onions and corn.

    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!

    Get the raspberry mojito (YUM!), hurricane, cucumber basil gimlet, or maybe the strawberry mojita (I personally wasn't a fan). Also the jalapeño-cheddar cornbread with jalapeño sauce is AMAZING!
