The decor, the music on the jukebox, the food and the staff, are all the real deal. This is a great New Orleans traditional soul food restaurant. The prices are right and the servings are large. So, if you seek the soul of New Orleans, get yourself to Hurst's. It is about a mile from the New Orleans airport.

Extremely friendly staff and wonderful food. Our wait time was non-existent. We are from New Orleans and happened upon this restaurant one Friday evening. They have the BEST of both worlds, cajun/creole and soul food! Don't let the modest exterior fool you- this place is an awesome eatery-dont pass this little place up!!

I had the shrimp, crab and okra stew with real cornbread( not that sweet, sissy stuff) and my husband had the stew with neck bones, crab and chicken necks. I spied a law enforcement official... More
