Blue Collar BIG Food... A Local's Fave...Might Be Your Cup of Tea Too!!

Look, I have eaten at some of the top rated restaurants in the world, and that includes New Orleans. This is a locals diner that serve A LOT of food for very little cash. The quality of the food, and the way it is prepared is what most of us middle class kids got at home in the 60's. Bell... read more

I had lunch here with two business associates. The food was very good. However, word to the wise, one order of the baked mac and cheese can feed three hungry men. We also had the soft shell crab. They were good and, by far the largest I have ever seen. It is impossible to leave this place hungry.

I grew up eating here and try to visit whenever I am back in New Orleans. The service is cafeteria style. The atmosphere is everything you would expect from a 3rd (4th?) generation, Sicilian, family run restaurant. Namely, organized chaos. The food is authentic Sicilian and Southern Italian with some New Orleans/ South Louisiana mixed in. The prices are reasonable... More

His place is incredible. Huge memu, great prices, good food and huge portions. Hearty and flavorful. This is how food should be done. The macaroni and cheese is really good and the ribs were done right.

The shrimp poboy was exceptional. The roast beef was flavorful. The plate lunches were mountainous. Mac and cheese is the best. Cafeteria style service. Prices are high.

Very good, offering Italian cuisine, seafood & American food. The portions are huge so my husband & I split a meal & still didn't quite eat it all. The service was good despite the place being packed.

On the way to the Chalmette Battlefield my family stopped in for lunch for the first time! We were impressed with the variety of the menu, quality and volume of food. It is worth the drive from New Orleans.
