This is by far one of the best eating places in New Orleans. The food is cooked well and it comes out fresh and hot.And I warn you do not taste the tea before you get your meal because you will fill up on the best tasting tea in the world. I don't care where I stay in New Orleans... More

This place will never let you down on flavor or owning up the style of food they serve. Been coming here off and on for years and had never felt that I wasn’t given a real home- cooked soul food dish. The dish I got this time was smothered pork neck bones and brown gravy with rice and string beans,... More

Want to eat some great "Home Cooked Food" with large portions at a reasonable price? Then Hurst's Restaurant if the place to go. They were one of the first restaurants open after Hurricane Katrina in 2010 & what a welcome opening it was. They could have charged twice the price with limited access to any restaurants at that time, but... More

The decor, the music on the jukebox, the food and the staff, are all the real deal. This is a great New Orleans traditional soul food restaurant. The prices are right and the servings are large. So, if you seek the soul of New Orleans, get yourself to Hurst's. It is about a mile from the New Orleans airport.

Extremely friendly staff and wonderful food. Our wait time was non-existent. We are from New Orleans and happened upon this restaurant one Friday evening. They have the BEST of both worlds, cajun/creole and soul food! Don't let the modest exterior fool you- this place is an awesome eatery-dont pass this little place up!!
