Worth the wait!!! Great plate lunch. We were there in October and our meal great. We did have to wait but it was worth it. We were back in New Orleans for New Years and the Sugar Bowl and we had another outstanding meal! Locals cover Joey K's up for lunch, but once again the food was well worth the... More

Now the inside seems a lot like a roadside diner, but don't let that fool you. The food is great! I had the trout with crab on top. It was fantastic! I was wishing I had more of it when I was done. I would eat here again.

Joey K's is a small neighborhood restaurant on a section of Magazine St. that is lined with restaurants, bars and stores. My husband had the red beans and rice and they were cooked to a perfect consistency and served with a sausage. I had a small salad and gumbo. The lettuce in the salad was not fresh and I ended...

We had heard Joey K's was a great spot to grab a bite after the zoo, so we tried it out after spending the day there. Since this was our first trip to NOLA, we wanted to try some local fare. There is a colorful sign inside Joey K's boasting the worlds best red beans and rice. My wife and... More

The food was amazing and the price was good too! My husband loved the fried chicken! My combo platter - red beans and rice, shrimp po boy and jambalaya was great! The generous portions almost made me skip dessert. So glad I didn't! We shared the bread pudding - it was AMAZING! Best bread putting I think I have ever... More

This was the last place we ate on our vacation. My husband ordered the seafood platter (listed price $18) actual fee was over $20. The food wasn't anything to get excited about. It wasn't awful, but was probably the worst we had the whole trip. And for the price, the most food he got was the French fries.

We ate an early dinner here. The service we received was absolutely the best of anywhere we ate while in New Orleans. Their pasta dishes are wonderful!! We did notice that the restaurant filled up quickly after we arrived. I would recommend dining early or late if you don't like waiting.

We wandered in here hungry and looking for a good, easy lunch. It ended up being one of our best meals of the trip. Amazing catfish tacos, fried green tomatoes and, wait for it, pasta! The only downside was the service was extremely slow, but the awesome food more than made up for it. It took a really long time,... More

Lunch was very good and reasonably priced. Friendly and attentive staff. Creaky floors and dumpy, but clean bathrooms is all the rage :) Worth a try while in New Orleans

We arrive around 2pm and were able to get a table right away. The place is small but has a lot of character. Our service was great. We had the onion rings first--they are delicious. I am not sure what seasoning they use but OMG! My sister and I had the chicken tenders plate, and WOW their was so much... More
