We visited for lunch based on all the great reviews but came away disappointed. First the bread basket was served and had money in it (I think it was a tip from a previous table and they re-served the bread ). When brought to our servers attention she simply said "lucky for you" and kept going. We had to ask... More

While shopping on Magazine Street we asked a local shop owner where to eat for authentic New Orleans food and she sent us here. We had great lunch with red beans and rice, gumbo, and a PoBoy with shrimp. Atmosphere was nothing fancy, but the food was great and reasonably priced.

It was so good that we went back the second day and had the shrimp po-boy and chicken cordon blue, it was awesome.The staff... More

After our garden district tour, our guide recommended this place. There seemed to be more locals than tourists which was a nice change of pace. Roast beef po-boy and gumbo were delicious. Staff was small but friendly. They also had $2.50 margaritas all summer. Great place!

We spent the afternoon shopping on Magazine Street knowing that we were going to eat at Joey K's. I knew that they served soft shell crab and was looking forward to it. I was not disappointed! It was delicious. The fried artichoke hearts weren't as good. The restaurant is family friendly and comfortable. A return visit will be on the... More

After attending a conference, I spent a couple of days touring New Orleans with my family. I wanted to take a photo tour of the Garden district and we arrived there after lunchtime. We needed a place to eat and a store owner told us that there were a bunch of restaurants on Magazine Street. We walked past a few... More

We were promptly greeted and seated when we walked through the door. Hubby ordered the chicken fried steak and said it was the best meal he's had in New Orleans. Real mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon accompanied his meal. I got the fried shrimp and it was good, but nothing special. Decent prices, neatly decorated.

We decided on Joey Ks after seeing it on Diners Drive Inns & Dives. It was diffidently a locals kinda of place. We had the onion rings which were great I believe they must have been handmade there. I had the shrimp po boy which was average and the hubs has chicken tenders which he said were great.

We just happened to be walking by this restaurant and the menu looked appetizing. It was a good choice. If you want some typical New Orleans food, Joey K’s is a good place to eat. They had an excellent selection of po boys, gumbo, rice and beans and shrimp. Check the specials board when ordering. They also had a deal... More
