My wife and I were on our way to The Tabasco factory when we stopped for breakfast. My wife did not want fast food and Dots was the first place I could find. We sat at the counter and watched "Miss Candy" at work. The work space for the staff was tight but all the ladies worked well together and... More

We have visited the other two Dot's regularly but never this one till today. They were bigger than they looked from outside. The food was just as good as at the other two locations. And the staff just as friendly. Thanks Dot's

My husband and I first visited dots about 6 months ago when we first moved to New Orleans. We continue to come back for not only the incredible prices but the absolutely delicious food. Never had a bad meal and always leave full with left overs.

Always reasonable prices and good service at the Dot's on Jefferson Hwy near Central. My favorites are the seafood omelette special (my weekend habit), the meatball and spaghetti special on Wednesdays, and the Red Beans and Rice special on Mondays.

Wonderful red beans & rice to get your week started on a Monday - great with the grilled pork chop. Breakfast served all day as well.

My husband and I dine here at least twice a week. The waitress Bessie sees us pull up and always remembers what we want to drink and has it on the table before we sit down. The food is always consistent and FRESH!!! My husbands favorite is the seafood omelet! Always full of seafood! My granddaughter and I love the... More

The food here is great. It is made to order when you order it. The menu selection is actually quite large. The atmosphere is casual diner but actually nicer than a fast food place. The speed of service is not an issue and the pricing about the same so it is a great alternative to any fast food chain. There... More

We often stop by at odd hours to satisfy our urge for some of Rodney's omelets and a short stack. Once you've had his pancakes, you'll forget there ever was an IHOP.
