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

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
