Foursquare Tips

  • Fried Oyster Po boy is legit!
  • Po' boys!
  • This place rules! Live blues!!!
  • I'd imagine this place would be hopping before a Sharks game?
  • BBQ shrimp bowl if you like spicy and delicious.
  • Cajun fries are just the right amount of spicy and are deliciously addicting.
  • Abita on tap!
  • Don't get the gumbo, jambalaya, or red beans and rice. Flavourless! Stick to the po' boys. The bread pudding is amazing. Beignets are swell too.
  • Order the red beans and rice and a Turbodog!
  • Cajun fries are on point!
  • The BBQ shrimp platter is the most delicious thing on the planet.
  • Do all of these things in one visit here: crawfish pasta, sausage bread, an Abita Turbo Dog beer, and listen to the live blues band play.
  • Get the sweet potato fries.
  • Drippin's and sweet potato fries.
  • Favorite place for lunch in SJ.
  • Try the muffaletta and sweet potao fries. Good beignets too!
  • Amazing food! All of it!! Cool ambiance. Great music. Cooks are fun to interact with. Cashiers are hot or miss with regards to personality. Bathrooms are gross! (Both guys and girls).
  • Excellent food! Try the red beans and rice! Cajun fries are out of this world!
  • If you can't watch the game from the Shark Tank, watch it here.
