We stayed at the Sheraton Metairie about 400ft away. Found chef Ron on TripAdvisor. Reviews said he's the man. Got a 16oz mumbo gumbo (traditional with shrimp, crab, sausage, tomatoes, okra, etc.) & a 16oz chicken and sausage gumbo, and an order of boudin balls to go. So the gumbo were both hot and had wonderful flavor. The boudin balls... More

I strolled in from a nearby hotel, driven by convenience. I found a quaint, friendly establishment, populated by nice folks, including the ebullient Chef Ron himself. I had shrimp creole and red beans and rice, The creole was just right on the tangy scale, and the shrimp was of good quality, and generously apportioned. The red beans were not soupy... More

I'm hurt that I have to review this place lower then what it should be but the flaws definitely take its toll on getting a higher score. I have visited Ron's several times. The first time the services was extremely slow and unattentive. I summed it up to the wait staff was over whelmed at the time. The next rime... More

Just got off a plane for a business trip in southern Louisiana. My co-worker took me straight here for lunch. What a great meal. I'm not a local (my co-worker is) but I loved it. Don't let the outside fool you, there's all kinds of Cajun goodness inside. Best gumbo I ever had. Get the Yumbo gumbo, you will be... More

Being a native of Southwest Louisiana I tend to approach restaurant gumbo with a grain of salt and low expectations. Chef Rod's makes me rethink this approach. I thought the gumbo here was not only great, it was some of the best I have ever had. It beats anywhere in the French Quarter. The staff was also very friendly.

We tried this place since we were staying in a hotel nearby and it was rated so highly. My son liked his chicken sandwich. My husband didn't care for his shrimp poboy. Shrimp were mushy. I had the oyster poboy. I didn't like it at all. Oysters had no flavor. We come from Cajun country and don't care for okra... More

We were staying at the hotel near by and decided to stop by Chef Ron's for dinner. We were seated right away although the place only has a few tables and we took the last one. The service was very quick, attentive and friendly. The food was great, best red beans and rice that I have had. Highly recommend.

As a native New Orleanean and have tried Gumbo at some of the most well know local restaurants, no one comes close to Chef Ron's Gumbo Shop! Chef Ron's dishes are truly "Authentic". I go every time I can with family, friends and business associates, and each time try something different. There has not been a time that we disappointed!... More

This place is really good and very authentic. Small place that has a great, friendly staff and the owner always comes out from the kitchen to speak to the guests. Fish and other menu items are terrific. Skip the boring chain joints and check out Ron's, it's quite a find!
