As a restraunt this place is good, but the chargrilled oysters put it in another level. I am not a huge fan of oysters normally (even though I love seafood in general) but as soon as I tried these I was hooked. I end up passing through New Orleans almost every month for work, and I try my best to... More

It was really good but the portion size for a little small and the price was a little high for what you got.

I am originally from New Orleans. And every time I return home I insist on a stop here (as well as Short Stop Po-Boys!). Dragos has the BEST Chargrilled Oysters in New Orleans. Hands down!

All the food was good but the oysters here are insanely good. This is coming from a person who doesn't generally eat oysters. Mouthwatering good... must have

I hadn't been to Drago's in about a decade. It was the first place I ever had Oysters, since I didn't think I would like them. Well, the Charbroiled Oysters at Drago's changed my mind when it came to Oysters then and they are every bit as good today as they ever were. My client and I polished off 5... More

I was hear years ago and brought my wife here for lunch this trip. We both love oysters. This is the only restaurant we've been to that offers grilled oysters. They are fantastic. They are grilled in the shell with a special sauce poured over and finally Parmesan cheese. We also had good gumbo. The service is good. It is... More

I'm not sure if the invented charbroiled oysters, but if they didn't - they perfected them! Everything else is great too.

This tried and true establishment has been a gathering place in Metairie for many decades. The food quality has diminished appreciably over the years, along with portion sizes. Don't go there if you're looking from typical Louisiana "fried" seafood, you'll leave disappointed. The restaurant specializes in broiling its offerings. Unfortunately, their broad use of poly-tri (sodium tripolyphosphate) preservative gives the... More
