Growing up in New Orleans I'm always reluctant to try Cajun restaurants in small cities, so far from the source. N.O. Take Out was a very welcome surprise! Their poboys are really good and the other dishes were equally authentic. I try to have at least one meal there every time business takes me to Madison. If you're in the... More

New Orleans Take Out is awesome. I will grab a bite to go at the Northeast side location and go and sit along the lake. Doesn't get much better then that. I love their red beans and rice with sausage as well as their chicken poor boys. I have to head there right now as I am craving them..............

Located near the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, WI this little nondescript hole in the wall cN really deliver the goods. The special I ordered to go was the shrimp etouffe that had perfectly cooked rice, gobs of shrimp, and spices that pepped up the dish through every last drop. The jambalaya was equally flavorful with an excellent andouille... More

There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, they barely have any seating. We come here again and again the for the great spicy cajun food unlike you will find anywhere. It's not for everyone, but if you like authentic spicy cajun food without all the fuss you should definitely visit. We have been coming here for over 15 years and... More

We stopped here on our way through Madison, looking for something unique for a late lunch. It was awesome! Great service from the guys at the counter and our food was prepared quickly. We ate in, since we didn't want to eat in the car. Not a lot of seating since its a really small place but there was room... More

The food is excellent, the place is just right funky (it is not just carry out), and John, the owner, is just a fine human.

Location terrible. Shady folks walking in and out of here. Small parking area. Front of the house girls that take your order are young and look like gang members. Not friendly at all. Plastic box presentation of food for eat in and carry out. Table area and bathroom dirty. The prices are way too high. Food is very good that... More

I eat here at least once every other week and I enjoy everything on the menu. The red beans ,sausage and rice, the crab cakes and jambalya are all outstanding. Two locations and very reasonable.

When in Madison and hungry, I often stop here. In a few minutes, you can get a cajun take out that's really good. I've been eating here for many years, and have not had a bad service experience; I mean, what's so hard about taking your order at the sales counter? Not much for atmosphere or location, but I come... More
