If I lived here, it might be a favorite restaurant!

We were going for a walking tour of the Garden District and wanted to eat nearby. We found Joey K's in one of those tourist guides you find everywhere. It looks like a neighborhood restaurant, in an old row of buildings. There was a good lunchtime crowd. I found a person to give my name to and... read more

I should feel ashamed of this, but I have never been a fan of Joey K's. It is super popular with New Orleanians, but it always seems "meh". Last time, the red beans were good but not great. I had the fried chicken which was a bit dry. Maybe it is because I grew up on food like this, it... More

Stopped in here for lunch while walking around the French Quarter. It was crowded but we were seated rather quickly. I had the Veal cutlette with mashed potatoes and peas and my husband had a reuben and fries. Both of our meals were very tasty and the prices were reasonable.Would eat there again if ever back in NOLO.

Went there from TA review. We loved it. Sat outside in sun on a beautiful day. Had a nice bottle of Chardonnay. Fried eggplant with a delicious crawfish sauce. OMG delicious. Fried fish platter with fries were great. Would definitely return.

Hands down, this was the worst meal I had over the 10 days I was in NO. The waitress actually loudly sighed at the hostess (or possibly just another waitress) when we were sat. She then made it obvious that she would much rather wait on her regular customers and we were semi-ignored. I ordered their daily special - which... More

Walked up Washington (after cemetery visit) to Magazine to check things out. Came across Joey K 's, was busy and had seating outside in the sun. Group of 6 tried various items, no complaints, food was good and reasonably priced.

Had a nice lunch here. They were very busy and it is a small place. We had brisket lunch and the fried green tomatoes with shrimp. Both very tasty. I would definitely go back.

We went here for an early dinner while on Magazine Street in the Garden District at the recommendation of a person working at our hotel. Very good service and the food was excellent. I had red beans & rice and my husband had the all you can eat catfish. It was a large plate of food that he could not... More

Definitely a spot the locals go.. I am in constant search for the best fried gulf shrimp. Joey K's is near the top of the list. Of course my picky kids ate the chicken tenders and LOVED them. It was a wonderful little spot out of the limelight, and I loved it. I highly recommend it.

While visiting the historical Treme today, my family and I were referred to the place by one of the locals!! This place is located in the lower garden district. Our server was cool and our food was great. I ordered the egg plant Napoleon, cooked to perfection smothered in shrimp and crawfish with a cream sauce!! And the red beans... More
