O-Mmmm-G!

We ordered fried oysters & fried shrimp dinners with red beans and rice for sides. We also had creole sauce on the side to try with the rice. It was all delicious! I'm originally from the coast and real, fresh oysters have been sorely missed in my Midwestern life. This is definitely a spot-hitter... read more

Ordered Mardi Gras combo, which included jambalaya, red beans n rice, and shrimp creole. Also a side of potato salad. Entrée was great, fed two easily... should have saved it for three servings because we were stuffed. Potato salad needed pepper but was nice and thick. Didn't take too long for carry out - maybe 15 minutes. A beer would... More

Have eaten here several times over the years. My favorite "go to" restaurant in the Madison area. The fried catfish is superb. Rice & beans & sausage is excellent. I'm always sad when my meal ends. I hope this place stays in business for many years to come. The only nit I have with their food is that the corn... More

This restaurant reminds me of the "Big Easy". You know, New Orleans. The name says it for itself. They have to locations in Madison .If you are near the UWM campus. There's one directly across from Camp Randall Stadium. It doesn't get no better than this. I love this food! Like the slogan says. "Eat Mo' Bettah". You must absolutely... More

Some times you read advise about finding restaurants in new town: you know, go where the locals go.....find a mom and pop place.....look for a little obscure hole in the wall. Well, I found the hole in the wall and I loved it. No plates....use travel containers; no silverware.....use plastic utensils; want water, how about a pitcher of it; want... More

Nothing fancy, but great food. Two locations feature takeout, but you can dine in as well. No wait service. My favorite Madison restaurant!

The food here is amazing! The ambiance is nothing special, but the food is fresh and authentic. Lots of choices, particularly if you enjoy seafood... The simple rice and beans are tasty as well. Great place to grab food and have a little picnic or take home to munch on while watching a movie.

I visited New Orleans Take-Out at 1920 Fordem Avenue in Madison in July 2014 and was extremely impressed with the quality of the food. I ordered Deb's BBQ shrimp, which was described as 'hot'. It was definitely hot, but not overly so. I loved the complex flavors in this dish which was, by the way, not your typical barbecue. The... More

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
