  • Alligator Cheesecake.
  • Enjoy the bar cause you're going to wait
  • Most of the menu is straight-up Creole, among the best in town. You will likely have to wait for a seat, but the Maple Leaf Bar is half a block away, so its no big deal. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Prepare to wait... But they'll let you drink next door, and come get you.
  • If you can't sit in the back, under a mural-covered ceiling, try eating in the bed of the "Jacques-Imo's" truck parked outside the restaurant!
