Red beans and rice this is the place to go on Mondays. Cornbread a must. Small space HUGE flavor. Hostess was very attentive to who was next as always 3 or 4 groups waiting to be seated.

Aside from the lunch time wait and no formal 'wait' list, the atmosphere, food and service were exceptional. Apparently this tiny & tasty place is pretty well known. We saw more than a few regulars waiting anxiously for their special seats. We ordered shrimp, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans, and DRUMROLL...the red beans and... More

Lamb shank was generous but strange spice flavour...mustard greens an acquired taste...I ordered the special po boy....roast beef and ham but found the roast beef too mucky with gravy and fries cold...successes were the green salad and broccoli soup....but I can make those...we had hoped for better...

Former residents of New Orleans who moved away more than 40 years ago returned to bring their mother to celebrate her 80th birthday. They had dinner reservations for the evening so they wanted po boys for lunch. With two of our choices closed on Tuesday, we met at Joey K's and I don't know why we were so surprised because... More

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.
