I have eaten at restaurants in New York City, London, Paris, Tokyo, New Orleans, etc and I put Okra's in my rotation. Why? I like the decor/atmosphere AND the food. My favorites? Steak Tallulah, Firecracker Shrimp, Dirty Rice with Chicken and the Bananas Foster. Try it and you will probably like it!

I was looking for something different for dinner and found this place. They are in Old Town Manassas (parking is tough). Service was great and OMG, the food was soooo good. My son got a giant bowl of gumbo and I got the "half" muffaletta, which was the biggest sandwich I've ever seen. Came with fries which I normally don't... More

The food was Fresh, authentic, and timely. The bar had a 9+ high quality craft beers, and excellent New Orleans cocktails, The decor is very authentic and hip... More

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
