The little lady and I had passed this restaurant a hundred times and finally decided to stop in for a late lunch. I am glad we did.
We were seated in the back where we choose to sit (under a fan). The male server was very helpful and I apologize for forgetting his name. Nevertheless, the restaurant had just switched from bread to cornbread. The waiter brought out two complimentary slices. To their credit, the cornbread was excellent and a tad sweet as southern style cornbread is wont to be.
The wife had never had jambalaya thus I encouraged her to try it. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. Both arrived in a very timely fashion.
I immediately stole a spoonful of her jambalaya to test it. To my delight, it was cooked to perfection. The rice was neither under or overcooked. The sausage, shrimp and spices were absolutely delicious. The dish presented well (see photos). My pulled pork sandwich was also excellent. It wasn't dry as Po boys typically are. As I don't care for cabbage, I simply slipped the coleslaw off the bread and chowed down. Perfect!
The décor is nice, the place was quiet at 2 pm., but it was a tad warm inside. Air-conditioning would enhance the experience. The full bar offered everything under the sun. I've been by there in the early evening and the place draws a nice ex-pat crowd for drinks.
We'll definitely return again and give the bottomless margaritas a try. We found the prices to be very fair given the quality of the food. It might be on the high end for some low wage earners, however.
I'd say give it a try if you're looking for a taste of New Orleans food. As far as I am concerned based on the location, service and the food, you can't go wrong.
Oh, and there is a TV playing sports in the event you're concerned you'll miss a game.
