Place order, sit down and your food is delivered in minutes. Old time restaurant with friendly staff. Good po boys and plate lunches-- Try the red bean or white bean lunch special.

I ordered the Shrimp Omelette and it was absolutely perfect! The food was amazing and the service was what you would expect. Great value. I could not finish it all. I will definitely be back the next time I am in town.
