We have been going to Vera's for several years and have never been disappointed. I've sampled seafood gumbo in many different restaurants and theirs is by far the best! They also do very good poor boys. Unfortunately they just stopped selling one of the best deals in town, a cup of gumbo and half poor boy for $8.95. However you can get the gumbo seperately and still order a half poor boy for only a dollar more. Service is always prompt and the decor is cool, and decorated with many items saved from their origianal restaurant which was blown away in Katrina.
