  • had breakfast here and learned from a waitress that HBO's 'Treme' filmed a scene here ;)
  • A little dive restaurant... but good food. The bread pudding is a must.
  • gumbo will make you slap ya mama
  • The absolute best food in new Orleans!!
  • A Trem classic, where the dark-roux gumbo is chock-full of crab and sausage and the craggy-crusted fried chicken is sold by the piece.
  • By far the BEST bread pudding I've ever had!
  • This Seventh Ward restaurant was featured extensively in HBOs Treme, and it's perfect for a Creole or soul food lunch from the lunch buffet. Call for hours. [Eater 38 Member]
  • This place is what u call down to earth soul food......make u come back for seconds
  • If you want a real NOLA experience....this place feels like home. Everything is great. Try the Trout with Mac n Cheese. Love the sassy waitresses.
  • All the chicken and fish I can eat!
  • Get the French toast and grits.
  • Great place to get breakfast before you head over to Jazz Fest
  • Great seafood gumbo and sweet potatoes/yams to knock your socks off!
  • Amazing brunch! Soul food at its finest. No booze but bring your own. Buffet looks amazing, but I opted for eggs. No regrets either way. Best biscuits Ive ever had
  • Chicken, gumbo,Mac and cheese, bread pudding and the seafood!
  • Nice spot but the po boys are not good... wish I had gotten that fried chicken!
  • Fried Chicken for sure!
  • Fun place with great staff.
  • Great chicken, gumbo, bread pudding. Have to come here for real NOLA food
  • The food overshadows mediocre wait service & way-too-informal staff who, loudly, regard each other with profanity. Head str8 for the seafood omelettes, gumbo, and killer fried chicken.
