On Decatur, so easy to find. Lunch here is great. Most portions are big enough to share. Best prices in the city. Red beans and rice and the seafood platter are our favorites.

The Muffaletta might not have originated at Maspero's, but it was definitely perfected here! Heaped with meat and the famous olive salad, paired with steak fries, it's a meal that will definitely fill you up! They have other tasty items on the menu, but the Muffaletta is my go-to whenever I'm in town! The place is quaint and has a... More

Started off with the pineapple sangria which was perfect and so refreshing in the heat...Ordered french onion soup, Mufalattas and the beef sandwich. Then the banana bread pudding for dessert. Everything was amazing and great service too! Many thanks for one our best meals in New... More

Many years ago people would stand in line around the corner on the street, to get in line for signature hot pastrami sandwiches...they WERE outstanding...meat sands piled high ...big enough for two people to share one sandwich. Though over time, apparently some time ago, (maybe decades) they changed their menu and while they still offer hot pastrami...it is not the... More

We are owned and operated right here in the French Quarter and doing our best to carry on a great tradition started many years ago. Like everything, of course there is change but we will continue to offering... More

First thing i noticed was it had a dingy bar atmosphere. We only stopped here because we were starving and the wait was too long everywhere else. Four of us ordered and all our food was mediocre at best. I ordered the jambalaya and it didn't have much flavor and rice was over cooked and mushy. I told the waitress... More

Javatourist, Thank you for the recent review on Tripadvisor. I am very disturbed by the way your visit was handled and will definitely take corrective action to ensure experiences such as this do not happen in the future. What seems to have been an easy issue to correct was overshadowed by the response you received when bringing the issue to... More

My wife and I come here for lunch every time we are in New Orleans. We usually sit at the bar and are always greeted with a smile. Expect a crowd if you go at lunch but you can usually find a seat at the bar regardless. My personal favorite is the French Onion Soup. It is amazing! The other... More
