We happened apon this place looking for somewhere to have lunch. The food was so good we came back two more times during our stay. It is also a bar with a jukebox. We had breakfast, grilled cheese, and a burger during our visit and everything we tried was great.

This bar is more quiet than the ones on Bourbon Street so you can have an actual conversation. They have great sausage and gravy for breakfast and good finger foods to go with your drink in the afternoon. It's located on the corner of Conti and Dauphine streets.

We were looking for a place to eat after one of the Mardi Gras parades. Most of the restaurants were packed with people. We came upon the Déjà Vu and said "what the heck". The place was mostly empty and I can see why, the place is dingy and run down. One customer came back from the men's room and... More

It's both hard and not hard to be a good bar in the FQ. Service was fast, the locals were fun, the beer was cheap. Also, the name made for a great joke. Lastly, get the fried green beans. Fried green beans. Again, fried green beans.

We went for breakfast and were not disappointed. Yes, it is smokey bordeline unsavory kjnd of place, but everyone was friendly and the food was good. There was a local cop eating there who had the same thing I ordered (country fried steak and eggs). My wife had an omelet and we both enjoyed them. Our waitress (Worm) was friendly... More

The drinks were faaaaantastic. I had 2 long island ice teas and that suited me just fine (and I can drink like a fish). The gumbo was pretty good. The fried catfish and fries were average - the fish could have used more seasoning. Overall, it's a decent place to grab some late night munchies and drinks. I'd go back.

definitely an all night dive bar but you just can't argue with great biscuits and gravy! ignore the rest of the reviews - if you're up for a smoky-roomed, down and dirty breakfast, it can't be beat! great coffee too !

Prices, hours, service, food, colorful local flavor...it's all good. Can be smokey, but it's a bar a block of bourbon.

We decided to eat here mainly because there were places to sit, and it had good reviews. The interior was a typical bar scene, but it was clean. Somewhat smokey. There were occasional homeless people coming in and out, but based on the local crowd I don't think this would be atypical of any bar near Bourbon St. The waiter... More
