“good visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We visited Gerald's restaurant with a large group (10 people) and were wowed by the service. We were served by Richelle, who could not do enough for us. After eating at some other places that couldn't care less, this was refreshing. They also didn't add the 15-20% gratuity that most places charge for big groups. The food was good, but we loved the service the most. Richelle, when she found out we were from Canada, brought us complimentary King Cake at the end (they make them at the restaurant). We ordered 8 donuts and she gave us 12 for the cost of 8! You won't be disappointed if you head over there. Try the deep fried pickles! We would be regulars there if we were locals. Richelle knew lots of people's names when they came in and it felt very relaxed and comfortable.

“Excellent Donuts, skip the breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

Geralds is a place that is convenient , open 24 hours has a great staff and does one thing excellent - donuts. Their donuts are the best around! Their breakfast though leaves a lot to be desired. An omelette should be pretty simple to cook but they have never been able to get one right for me. Their Big G burger is good but a bit pricey at ten bucks. Go for the DONUTS. they are worth the trip.

“Glad they reopened Gerald's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

Excellent experience recently at Gerald's since they reopened in Arabi following Hurricane Katrina.

Highly recommend Gerald's Burgers and they have a very good breakfast biscuit as well.

Our family enjoys the donuts as well.
