Staff trying hard. Food was lacking spice. Not sure why they have a poster saying they have won awards. Bill mix up. No waiting time.

Great food at a reasonable price. The service was good and our waiter had a very good knowledge of the dishes. He was able to tell me about the ingredients in the food without having to refer to the kitchen, that's unusual in my experience. I do have a bit of food problem. The place had a nice quiet atmosphere.... More

We had reservations for a party of 10. The host and hostess had our table ready for us when we entered the restaurant. They said, "We have a table for you and table ready for a party of 15." They debated which one to seat first and decided to seat the party of 15. Another host jumped in and called... More

It was absolutely fantastic I had a fantastic gumbo and my wife had fried crawfish. It's simple, cheap and well worth finding if you can.... More

Friends had recommended De JaVu, so we went to the Main Street location. Now I realize that others may have gotten better food and better service, but we did not. The Chicken and Sausage Jamabalya I ordered tasted like it had been made earlier in the day on only slightly reheated before being served to me. The parts that were... More

The spot in Memphis when it comes to New Orleans or Cajun style cuisine. Great selection of typical food like Gumbo, Jambalaya or variations with the typical used spices. I had the gator stew, which was awesome...very spicy. Probably the reason why I couldn't really find the depth in the much milder pasta afterwards...i would say...wrong combination. Staff was fast...
