I've been going to NOTO for years now. Usually get Debs BBQ shrimp which is just perfectly buttery and spicy. Also had the Gulf coast shrimp and seafood file gumbo on occasions and have never been disappointed. I was in New Orleans itself a few years ago and couldn't find gumbo as good as NOTO. Excellent takeout, just wish they... More

Food was good--just make sure you know which location you're ordering from. Trip advisor has the number for only one location on it.

Stop by because it was freezing in Madison and I wanted a home cooked meal. To my surprise the food was authentic and great-tasting I will definitely be back

This place is the real deal for Cajun and Creole food. I just wish they would find a place that would be large enough for sit down. I cook Cajun and Creole food and know how to do it, and trust me, these guys know how to do it too! If you want the real deal in Madison, this is... More

This outstanding Cajun restaurant has been in Madison for decades. I have visited many times but not often enough. I normally get the Jambalaya or the seafood file gumbo or the crawfish Etouffee ~ always excellent. Yesterday I got the Mardi Gras combo with cornbread. The combo is Jambalaya, Red beans and rice, and shrimp Creole. It was a homerun.... More

Small portions for trying to represent New Orleans. Customer Service was lacking (kind of threw down our order and did not want to answer questions). Red beans and rice was tasty and Shrimp Etoufee was super spicy but was also delicious. The french bread was worth the trip.

Close but no cigar. Everything on the menu was perfect. Having been to New Orleans on business trips I had certain expectations. I took a friend to New Orleans Take Out based on it's reputation and food type. I had a po boy and the bread was stale. Nuf said. My guest had the special of the day and it... More
