The food here (we have eaten several times) is always good. Jacques-Imo's is VERY eclectic ever by New Orleans standards. Dinners have to walk through the kitchen to get to there tables, the walk can be crowded and troubling. However, the food is very good.

Jacques-Imo's is my absolute favorite restaurant in New Orleans! No matter what the wait (and I have waited a long time!), it's worth it just for the alligator cheesecake and fried deer steaks. This is a must when we are in town.

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

Yes, you can easily park in the street. We went there twice in November and had no trouble finding a parking space along the side walk. Hope this helps.
