When you walk by this place, you think dirty, grundgey restaurant, no thank you. Even when you peek inside, you’re still thinking no way, jose. After glancing at the bare menu, you’re probably thinking hmmmm where else could I have gone for better food in the Quarter. It’s not until the food comes out (after a painstakingly long time) that you begin to think maybe I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. And its when you take a bite out of that first french fry when you think, its love at first taste. Haha. Or at least this was my thought progression when I came here. The fries definitely made this place worth it. This place is known for their roast beef po boys which looked delicious. Although the mayo was a little heavy for this artery-clogging sandwich, the sauce was amazing and blended well with the flavor of the meat. I ordered the fried chicken basket, which was definitely no where near “the best in new orleans” as this restaurant boasted.  I guess for the price, the quality is fair.

I'm a food aficionado with an interest in photography. Most of my restaurants will be in New Orleans as I will be here over the next few years. Every now and then you will see a post from Boston or Philadelphia too!
