Best lunch place

This is such a cute and quaint lunch spot that not many just come across. It is only open for lunch but it is well worth making a trip for. They have the best chicken salad and Jambalaya ever. The roux they use for the jambalaya is so dark you actually think it is burnt the first time you get... read more

North LA vs South LA - I had no clue there was a difference in North vs South Louisiana cooking but I learned this the hard way today. I ordered the Shrimp etouffe, which is one of my favorite dishes. What I received was anything but an etouffe. It looked and tasted more like a very bad shrimp chowder. This... More

Had the Turkey and Spinach Salad, and a slice of the German Chocolate Pie for lunch. Prices, service, atmosphere, and food are all awesome! Can't wait to go back there again!!

Lunch only. Just off I-20 so easy travel stop. Try the shrimp salad, the jambalaya and the almond Jacque pie! Consistently great.

My favorite local place. The absolute best shrimp salad and shrimp étouffée. Everything here is good! It is always hard to choose between the Almond Jac pie and the German chocolate pie. Take a friend and split the desserts.

Absolutely delicious. The shrimp salad sandwich is a must. Only open for lunch and there is always a long line. Basically has gumbo, red beans & rice, other soups, salads,and sandwiches. You place your order at the counter, then sit and it is delivered to you.

The two wait staff I had contact with were not friendly/welcoming although it was early lunch with few customers. Thirty minutes later it was packed. Have only been once though. Food was good. Location is convenient to my workplace. Quaint building and quaint neighborhood.

I have been going here for 20+ years. The shrimp or lump crabmeat salad are amazing. The clam chowder is better than anything I have had in Boston, MA. The soup of the day should be titled Soup of the Year. The grilled Monte Cristo should be outlawed, great food, simple atmosphere, great service.

It’s been 5 years since I lunched here, and last week was reminded why. A friend’s suggesting we meet there for convenience took me there. The décor is hard floors and institutional tables and chairs. You stand in line to place your order, which a-priori takes “Excellent” off the list. Order, pay and find a table. Asking for a receipt... More
