We've been a few times. It typically isn't open (painting one time, just not opened another, etc). Today we went (on All States Day). It was a great experience right down to the complimentary bowls of Red Beans & Rice they were handing out. So, with the mis-starts on trying to get in, why the good rating? It's just a NOLA thing. It is the way they rol down there.
