I found this place here on TripAdvisor and had to check it out. The portions were big, beautiful, and very good. The red beans and rice are the best that I've had thus far in N.O. It's a small little spot with big flavors and some good ol' fashioned home cooked meals.

If you want to experience great Louisiana seafood you must visit Joey K's. I was with friends from Australia and they agreed this was one of the best meals we had in the week we were in New Orleans. Portions are very generous.

We got the St Charles street car to the garden district and walked past all the beautiful houses through the lovely wide streets to Magazine Street and stumbled upon this place whilst feeling hot, exhausted and hungry! My husband thought he remembered seeing it featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives but couldn't remember and I was beyond caring and... More

Joey K’s was on TV for their Red Beans and Rice, but what is great is the mound of Onion Rings. This alone could almost make a meal for two. These two items over shadow their other meals. We had the catfish and lamb shank. The meals were good and large enough for us both to take things home. They... More

This place was recommend to us by our hotel clerk and she didn't steer us wrong! We had po-boys, red beans and rice, and jambalaya. It was all so fresh and delicious! Don't let the non-flashy atmosphere deter you from going here.

Hubby and I went here with my brother and his wife for dinner. Three of us had the fried soft shell crabs and one had the seafood platter. It was okay, but not very well seasoned. Have had much better food in other New Orleans restaurants.

Nothing over the top but our sandwiches were very good. I had them make a veal parm sandwich for me as it was not on the menu. It was real sliced veal. Very nice.

Great old time atmosphere( like your favorite neighborhood mom and pop) awesome food(shrimp po boy is my strong recommendation) red beans and rice are true blue! I would put the gumbo up against anyone's (the "so called" cream of the gumbo crop has nothing whatsoever on JK's) very fair price, very friendly staff, great eats and a definite must stop... More

Our family of five went to this restaurant based on hotel's recommendation. What a find! It covers all the New Orleans classics very well--jambalaya, gumbo, etc.--but I will never forget the eggplant napolean (pictured above). Apparently, it's what Guy Fieri had when he came to the restaurant for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Crispy eggplant with shrimp topped with a dreamy... More
