We have been to Southside Cafe many times and have never been disappointed. Their Monday night special of red beans and rice is delicious! In fact, we haven't had a bad meal there. The atmosphere is fun and lively. The wait staff are very attentive and helpful. Great place for a great meal.

all very good! Especially fun to watch football games with a crowd of people. It would be nice if that back room could be a little sound proof for times when friends just want to talk,,

Good place to get together with family and friends for food and drinks. Southside Cafe has been open a long time. We have been here numerous times when we lived here and we come back to visit we always come back to to meet friends.

We have been going to Southside for a long time. The food is always very good. It can get a bit crowed and loud at times, but most of the time we can get a table right away. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good Louisiana style dishes.

Southside Café is one of my favorite eateries in Slidell. The menu is very diverse and will satisfy everyone's cravings. Everything on the menu is excellent. The atmosphere is great with the big screen TV's and nice bar. I would recommend this place to anyone!
