The food was excellent. We went to the new location on WhiteBridge Rd. It's small but the service was great, the food was great and it was reasonably priced. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Went to J. Gumbo's in Antioch. Best Gumbo I have ever eaten. Friendly staff. Clean attractive place. Great choice of menu items and they will let you sample so you will know what to try. They even have Mac and Cheese with a kick.

Good place for creole cuisine. This is ideal for smaller appetites and simple surroundings used by workers.

I ate here for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. Affordable Cajun food is sometimes disappointing, but this was good. I had the Gumbo and it was good, but I tried a sample of both the Drunk Chicken (like a Gumbo) and their...More

I had a hearty bowl of Voodoo chicken sprinkled with chopped spring onion and a special spice powder. There was a decent hit of heat and plenty of white and dark chicken meat. It wasn't sophisticated but it was cheap and tasty. The cafe was...More

...and ask for extra scallions and red pepper spices. And don't be dismayed by the fact that there isn't any okra in it, they blend it so it pretty much disappears. Great roux, plenty of sausage and chicken, big chunk of freshly made garlic bread...More

My boyfriend and I went on a walking nashville tour and passed by this place. It was only steps away from our hotel so popped in that afternoon. Amazing food, reasonable prices and a lovely girl serving! Shame it's hidden away. Felt we were in...More
