“Undependable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I called and ordered jambalaya a week in advance of our family event. Twenty minutes prior to the designated time to pick up the jambalaya, I received a call. Mrs. Wendy, this is the Jambalaya Shoppe. We've got a problem. We forgot to cook your pork and sausage jambalaya for today. Thankfully, there was a local business, Kamal's Kafe, who was interested in having happy customers as evidenced by being more than willing to accommodate our family event. Kamal and his staff are to be commended. When our family event started at 2:00, we had excellent food ready to be served! The message I got from the experience was that The Jambalaya Shop is undependable and not to be trusted for having food as promised.

“Good value”

We've had the jambalaya and the white beans! Both are very good. Great for take out and pot lucks.
