Creole food just I like I grew up with

I am originally from New Orleans. The food at Okra's if very close to what I remember my grandmother making when I was a kid.

Stopped by for lunch. Food and atmosphere was pretty good. I tried the crawfish etouffee over rice and cornbread. The small portion was surprisingly just the right size, even though I'm a pretty big eater. The dish wasn't bad, although it could've had a bit more seafood and heat. The only downside was the very slow service.

The gumbo at this place is the real deal, and my friends who grew up Southern are crazy about the shrimp and grits! Several kinds of Abita beer are on tap, and the atmosphere is fantastic! It's a little bit of New Orleans right here in Manassas!

My husband, daughter, and I tried this resturant on Friday 4/24. Thought our Georgian waitress was fantastic, very friendly and attentive; must be the southern hospitality. Thought the food was mediocre. We ordered 2 appetizers fried okra and fried alligator. Okra was ok; the pieces of 'gator could have been bigger; the pieces were about the size of a large... More

Last night we ate at Okra's. I ordered the pork chop which the server told me was juicy. Well, it was dry. The taste was ok, but dry. The mixed veggies were delicious and the mashed potatoes good. When the server asked about my meal, I told her the pork chop was dry. She told the manager who visited our... More

Went to dinner here before a local concert. The service was awesome and the food even better. Had the pasta Diablo and it was great and very spicy! Beer selection is very good to wash down the pasta.

We had a great time. The food was amazing. I had an oyster Po Boy and seafood gumbo and my wife had a pork chop. Both were perfect.

To be fair, I had chicken livers the day I was there so I cannot compare it to NOLA, but they were really, really good.
