Good ol' New Orleans food for Mardi Gras

This was such a fun little food truck in the heart of the market. Great selection to choose from and delicious creole food to sample and enjoy. Loved the gumbo, cornbread and fried pickles.

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night - a regular flow of customers but not too busy. The jambalaya was wonderfully tasty with delicious chunks of spicy sausage. The toasted pecan salad and sweet cornbread made a perfect very filling meal. My friend's seafood salad was substantial and fresh. Great friendly service from behind the counter; I'd definitely go...

The special we got was gator gumbo -- its name alone appealing to any adventurous gastronome walking by the Farmers Market. Slightly spicier and smokier, it did not quite compare to the mainstay of seafood gumbo. You also get a choice of sides, of which I cannot rave more enthusiastically about the collard greens... Just hmm hmm good. Beware the... More

Ate a piece of really yummy pecan pie here today - rich and just likes Grandma used to make. For less than $4 for a generous slice, knowing how high pecans are, I felt it was a good value. Lots of tables in this section of the market and friendly staff. Hubby had a cornbread muffin that he raved about,... More

I ordered the blackened catfish po boy sandwich, which was very delicious. I always ordered fried pickles and was not impressed, because they used sweet pickles. I am a dill pickle girl. It was $15 for the 2 items. The sandwich was quite huge and definitely filled me up! I would recommend trying it out!

Authentic cuisine. Recommend the seafood gumbo which comes with a side of your choice. Order the mint iced tea for your beverage and a beignet for dessert.

Really good food here. The prices were a bit high, but this is LA. Food was authentic and the portions were really a nice size. Went there for lunch, had a ton of places to choose from and we were super happy with our choice.

Ordered Jambalaya as a side was medium hot to spicy, good size portion to try for around 6 $. Enough meat included for the portion size unlike other reviewer experiences. Didn't expect N'Orleans quality so wasn't disappointed, tasted good. Counter help was nice enough. Experience overall was ok for the price.
