“Great Cajun food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a great little place in the middle of old town Manassas, VA. The food is excellent and on a nice night you can sit outside on the sidewalk and enjoy the little town feel!

“High quality food prices for mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

So disappointing. I had the shrimp po boy, my sister had shrimp and grits. She got the smaller portion, came with three shrimp and they were chewy, not so fresh. My po boy washer bread than shrimp. I really wonder if I ate at the same restaurant as all the other reviewers for this place. This restaurant is known around town that it is supposed to be great, I just wasn't that impressed.

“Great authentic Cajun food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

It reminded us of our two years in Louisiana. The food was great. The ambiance was perfect. And the Abita beer made it better!

“Laissez les bons temps roulez...in Manassas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Real Creole cooking in Virginia? Yes. It's true. Hot and spicy, made just like home (or as close as you're going to get around here). The atmosphere is unremarkable but very friendly. The food is quite good!

“EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I was a bit hesitant to try Okra's while in VA last week on business. It was a pleasant surprise to enter a nice restaurant with a cute New Orleans decor, great zydeco music, attentive and knowledgeable wait staff and GREAT food! Try the Cajun Deviled Eggs - yummy! Gumbo was the best I've ever had - even from New Orleans. Even our cocktails were great. I definitely recommend Okra's!
