Second visit. Went at 6:45p and there was a wait. They can only sit about 34 people total. It did not look like they could handle the amount of business in there... Service was not the best for the two waitresses, but they tried. Had...More

Don't let the building fool you, the food is good. Place is somewhat small and was crowded- they have a large take out crowd. Flavor was authentic -my Mother was born and raised in Louisanna, and it tasted like my mamas'a!

Although the name is about gumbo, I am always in search of a good oyster poboy. I was so pleased with the poboy. The oysters were large, fresh, and fried perfectly. The bread and dressings used were so tasty. It was a great experience. Now,...More

The gumbo is great, but I would also recommend the fried chicken and the shrimp Creole.don't be put off if there's a line because they have an extra room to seat people. Service is fast and definitely worth the wait.

If you want a great taste of Louisianan food then go no further than Chef Ron's. Great value and Chef Ron came and chatted at our table. A very nice person in a city that sometimes feels like you are getting hustled.

stopped there for dinner on drive east on I-10. The place is fairly easy to find, but the access is not straightforward given its location close to the highway and also a hospital nearby. The decor is really interesting with dollar bills signed by previous...More

My husband is from Louisiana and he can be quite the critic if regional food is not up to snuff with his family's cooking. Kudos to Chef Ron for making the grade! My husband and I put the seafood gumbo to the test: first rate!...More
