“Great food, service could be better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

Food overall is one of the best places in Madison if your right by the stadium or on the northside. Service usually sucks, the person working is not very nice, but I could usually forgive because the food is worth it.

“New Orleans takeout is always a great choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Been here a handful of times over the past few years and each time I have thoroughly enjoyed eating eating here. I recommend the red beans and rice with french bread with pralines it will fill you up though almost anything here will. It's a very casual atmosphere and quite cool to see all the music legends and who have passed through and had a nice meal of New Orleans cooking. This place is easily one of my top restaurants in town.

“New favorite restaurant in Madison!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

My boyfriend and I were getting tired of eating on State Street so we decided to look up restaurants and found New Orleans Take Out. I had my first Po' boy sandwich (with fried oysters) which was amazing! The bread is so good and the crust on the oyster was perfect. My boyfriend had the BBQ Po' boy and he loved it. We have come back several times since and we're sure to visit again!

“Don't let the look of the place fool you...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We love spicy cajun and have always meant to try this place in our hometown. We decided to try the fried catfish and shrimp creole. The catfish batter was not too heavy and had good flavor and wasn't dry. The dirty rice accompanying it was flavorful. The shrimp creole was advertised as "very, very hot" and that just seemed like a challenge. And boy was it good... and pretty hot. The cornbread was a generous portion and very tasty. Our entrees were about $6 each for the "small" portion -- perfect for lunch. The only thing missing was fried okra. We'll be back to try all the other entrees!

“Cajun Cream? What a dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Authentic Cajun fare available locally. Excellent stuff all over the menu - I love the various Po Boy sandwiches and Thursday's special, "cajun cream." Folks who like the spicy will love the jambalaya. Creole for real. Cornbread. Real deal stuff.
