Small comfortable restaurant with great food

The red beans are just yummy and the chicken ya ya is great. A hearty meal and great cornbread make this a must when in town. Reasonable prices, BYOB.

If you love spicy and want to revisit the tastes you enjoyed in NOLA, go to Chef Wayne's! The gumbo was spicy, velvety goodness. The Thunder Thighs are a must. I'll be back soon!

I had some of the best gumbo at this place. Served with cornbread. ...! It was so tasty. Who knew that the south could taste so good up north. Definitely a palette pleaser

They have a very fun menu. If you like creole and southern fusion this the place for you. They have very good food and great service. A great place if your looking to try something different.

I had friends visiting from out of town and decided to try Chef Wayne's. We all had different dishes and they were all excellent. I had the Mississippi Chicken, one friend had fried catfish (a special, not on the regular menu) and the other friend had shrimp and chicken jambalaya. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and comfortable, but certainly not... More

My husband and I recently had lunch at Mamou's. My husband loves Creole & Cajun food, it can be a little too hot for my liking. The restaurant was very small & hot, we were told that one of air conditioning units wasn't working. We ordered our food I requested that my meal be less spicey...if possible. My request was...

Two of our favorite cuisines are Creole and Cajun. I was totally shocked to find these cuisines in one restaurant in Springfield, MA and the chef is from Haryford, CT. Go figure. His talent in the kitchen was terrific and comparable to some of our favorite New Orleans spots. Everything that we ate was spot on and the dishes that... More
