    Was not impressed. I read the reviews and everyone claimed this place was amazing. I got the USS Brooklyn. 1st, it was too big to fit into my mouth. 2nd, it was super spicy. Did not enjoy this at all.

    Bayou biscuits are a little salty but yum! When it comes put the biscuits on top so it isn't soggy and you can actually taste how good their biscuits are with each bite. The pork grits are just ok.

    No one is exaggerating about the sandwiches here. For breakfast, the huevos rancheros had won many awards.

    If there's a wait for a table, ask to sit on the patio where you can order drinks while you wait. The patio tables even have Trivial Pursuit cards to help pass the time!

    Don't miss the USS Brooklyn. One of my favorite sandwiches. The half is more than enough food unless you're sharing. Chicken is perfectly spicy, bread has just the right texture… and that chutney!

    Don't go with a big party

    The sausage gravy and biscuits make a proper example with fresh, buttery biscuits and a sausage gravy that’s never gloppy. You won’t leave hungry.

    Half size USS Brooklyn and peanut butter pie for dessert. Super tasty and I did NOT have any leftovers.

    Get half of a "battleship" if you aren't absolutely starving. A half is about a foot long and filled to the brim with toppings.

    Michael Zeevi · May 18, 2013

    The USS Brooklyn, CSS Virginia and USS Wabash

    CSS Virginia - Fried chicken liver in a baguette - very good!

    Elisa S. · April 22, 2013
  • Patricia B.

    The battleships are no joke. I could order the half portion, split it with someone and still be full.
