    Was brought some gumbo from The Gumbo Pot. Excellent! When I can eat more some time in the future, I will!

    NO. I am really sad to say that this is not cajun food, wrong flavors :( I didn't try any of their fried foods, maybe that's what's good here?!

    Absolutely terrible. The server was not knowledgeable of the menu and really messed up my order and then weren't accommodating AT ALL. Food was an insult to my creole heritage.

    Seafood Gumbo is a great pescatarian option.

    OK, resting on its laurels though. Kinda taking the just feed the tourists approach vs. really trying to create great Cajun found experiences. Should focus more on quality vs. quantity.

    The mixed po boy was good, the cajun meat pie is woo good, the blackened chicken po boy a no no, the chicken was dry & hard.

    Good coffee

    Gumbo Ya-Ya was more like Gumbo No-No. Potato salad tasted like paint. Couldn't eat. Pick another vendor.

  • Sui D.

    Food is pretty good. Servers are rude. Make sure you leave with everything you ordered.

    Jumbalaya in two levels of spicy! Wow

    Gotta try the fried okra

    Used to be service AND food suck. Poached egg was overcooked - had to bring it back and they didn't even apologize. Catfish po' boy sandwich was all bread...barely any catfish.

    come for the freak, stay for the Jambalaya

    Long lines don't always equate to good food. Case in point... Better off going anywhere else in the Farmers Market.

    Kris Elder · July 11, 2011
  • Victor J.

    Do not eat here...the food was very bland...both times...

    Victor Jones · June 2, 2011
  • Seth C.

    The name is deceiving. They DO NOT sell pot here.

    Seth Cameron · April 22, 2011
  • Neil R.

    Worst Soft-Shell Crab Po Boy ever. Stay away

    Neil Rosos · April 7, 2011
  • Frank S.

    The food is OK...the breakfast selection was limited, but the creole poached eggs atop the cornbread with charon sauce were pretty good. Skip the potatoes, they are basically cut up steak fries. I s

    Hoping the food is better than the personality.

    Was not a fan. If you've ever had beignets in New Orleans at Cafe du Monde you will be disappointed with these for sure!

    This Gumbo is the real thing.......however, didn't see the crab meat as advertized

    Norman Logan · September 20, 2010

    Get extra cornbread. Take some home to share.

    David LM McIntyre · August 31, 2010
  • Mike W.

    Go with the Cajun meatloaf Po'boy w/ BBQ sauce, cornbread, and an order (4!) of beignets. Throw in a pitcher of Blue Moon from a neighboring vendor and you are SET.
