Tough to give it an excellent rating since I have tried true authentic Cajun gumbo food while visiting family in the south. However, this place isn't bad but the place was empty when we got there at 5pm on a Saturday. Large portions for what...More

Extremely friendly service and easy menu. Jambalaya and fish gumbo outstanding. This place is carry out as well but sitting in is better. Outdoor seating also there.

First time I've eaten here. I liked it a lot! If you like spicy flavorful food and are looking for something different, this place is for you. Reasonably priced and good portions. I will be going back to try the gumbo.

J. Gumbo's always serves great food. Try the Bumblebee Stew or the Voodoo Chicken individually or make your meal a combo of the two. There food ranges from mild to spicy, and the meal prices are reasonable.

Don't let the menu board fool you. Nothing on the menu is sweet & mild. I chose red beans and rice because I was told it wasn't spicy. It is! So I went back to the counter to exchange it. How about some macaroni and...More
