If you like original Cajun food, you will LOVE this place! We are hooked on the Chicken Creole and Chicken Piquant. The portions are generous and each is served over a bed of rice with a side of garlic bread (baguette). The decor is eclectic...More

I have been to New Orleans, Bourbon n’ Toulouse has Cajun like no other. I loved it. I’m so happy we found this place. The portions were huge. I loved the laid back local vibe. I would return in a heartbeat.

My bourbon chicken sandwich was ok but the gumbo and Chicken Etouffée was well liked by my family. Busy place so expect to stay in line a bit.

The owners are very service oriented and extremely humble. They love on first responders and the military with a great sense of gratitude.

Finding a parking spot on the street was difficult. It was listed as vegan is the reason I sought out place. Cute but very small place where you order at the cash register. I was disappointed I had to eat black beans and rice, again,...More

Probably the worst Cajun food I have ever offered up to my lips. Lots of rice, lots of roux, unidentifiable other stuff within it. I cook Cajun, and I have been to New Orleans. This is a poor excuse of an attempt to even try...More

Hi Melissa. Sorry I'm just seeing this. The other responders are correct, we don't serve bourbon. Our name comes from the intersection of Bourbon and Toulouse Streets in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We did recently... More

As Dj C said, it's very casual. You order at the counter, they call out your name and you go and pick up your food. Everything is made from scratch in house except for the bread. That is baked daily downtown at Sunrise... More

Yes, they have a decent selection of bottled beers, and the owners also have the bar next door (Checy Chase Inn). I believe you can take your food next door, and have a drink there with your meal if you want something beside... More

In July 2004 Will Pieratt and Kevin Heathcoat took a the huge leap of faith and opened Bourbon n' Toulouse by maxing out seven credit cards and simply hoping things worked out for the best. The business plan was simple: cook some damn good food, give back to the community that help keep their lights on and have as much fun as the law allows! Ten years later these guys are still extremely passionate about what they do and they haven't grown up a bit, just ask their wives! Always cooking and laughing, these guys are serious about having fun. Stop in and sample the wide array of tasty Cajun and Creole dishes, grab a beer from the ever changing selection and drift away to their own little version of The French Quarter. Not bad for a washed up musician and a retired elementary teacher!
