We went through the kitchen to get to our seats on the back porch. No kidding, that's more than unique, is there no code for kitchens? Decor must be for the tourist, personally over the top, but food was very good. Very seasoned, not over seasoned for the southern palate. One of the persons in our party asked for sweet tea and it became even more gimmicky. There is never fried chicken without a sweet tea especially if you are going to go so far as to have a watermelon cocktail. Cute if you are not offended by the chicken and watermelon reference! NOT REALLY! Lots of young people, maybe tourist like us, maybe locals while we were there, but I doubt people who eat this type of food on the regular. I grew up in NC and taste like our southern home cooked food. Don't know if its real New Orleans, but it taste good. So silly it almost worked for me.
