NOLA it is notta

We visited here because one us desperately craved a muffaletta and the other was tired of hearing about it. The Cary location has sort of a "rode hard" look to it, with courteous but slow service. There were, in fact, fewer NOLA style menu offerings than we'd anticipated, and in agreement with... read more

The food is not good here but service was nice and accommodating. There is outside seating. There are much better places if you're looking for food similar to NOLA

Okay, I am not the perfect salsa dancer but let me tell you, I paid 10$ to dance it was worth it. The people are very patient during these lessons as I tried to warn them of my terrible dancing skills but they didn't care! Hahahaha. I loved it and laughed about my mistakes and it ended up a great... More

We were in the area and looking for a place to eat. Saw this place and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! There are plenty of televisions so we were able to watch the NFL playoffs unobstructed. Our server was very helpful in terms of recommending things to try. We started with the She Crab soup... More

Enjoyable birthday celebration for lunch using a Groupon. Our party of 4 had the "A Taste of Louisiana" platter, Catfish Platter, Jambalaya, and a hot sub. Each dish was plentiful, presented with flair, and everyone really enjoyed their meal. My favorite part was the Bourbon Street Brownie which was more than enough for the 4 of us to share. The...

Stopped in for dinner after a class. Had a great oyster salad with mixed greens, candied walnuts and olives with Brie cheese. Oysters had just the right amount of spice to them along with a nice balsalmic. Steak was actually done medium rare like requested and the cole slaw was good as well. My friend had a burger and chile... More

Really a great taste o' N'Awlins!. Menu was compelete and well presented. The water who waited on us was great: just a perfect belend of presence and tact for his timing...I was at a business meeting. On top of that...The restaurant hosts World Tavern poker tournaments...and was a lot of fun to watch. I will definitely be back!!!

The food was decent. I had the taste of Louisiana, my husband had the catfish platter. The service was super quick, so quick that I'm pretty sure there's not an actual chef back there. If it's not something fried then it's probably made way ahead or from a food service company. I think if we lived closer we could hang... More

Had a Group On found the place, a little hard because it has a street address but it's in a shopping center so it's not really a street. They had a rib eye special decided to try it out. It was good cooked correctly. Also tried the gator bites they were good also. Their mashed potatoes were excellent and you... More
