Ordered through Uber Eats. Food was great, delivered ahead of schedule, and delivered hot. Was not disappointed!

Went there for dinner. A little confusing set up because everything is ordered at the bar. Picnic tables provide the seating. Beer was pricey, food was decent price. I got jambalaya and a biscuit. Portion size was good, food was ok. Dark inside, a few insects were crawling on our picnic table.

Very friendly place. Food was ok...a little greasy. Seems to be a place for the younger crowd to hang out.

This is more of a bar with some barbeque and pub food. There are TV's, concrete floors, patio tables, and a couple of pool tables. The ugly nachos were very good. The burnt tip sandwich was decent and the jumbalaya and cole slaw were nothing special. Overall, while not bad, there are many better options close by.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. We were there a couple years ago and found that the new owners have made a BIG improvement over the old ones. I had the burnt ends over grits and the husband had pulled pork and burnt ends. Both orders we found to be very tasty. Very casual with lots of tv's to watch... More

Thanks to Amtrak, we rolled into New Orleans about eight hours later than expected -- too late to keep the dinner plans we'd made. Therefore, late at night, with fine dining out of the question, we were on the prowl for damn-near anything. With apologies to restaurants who probably do a fine job at pizzas and such, that's not what... More

Loved this hole-in-the-wall place with picnic tables and a friendly staff. I had the jambalaya and it was AMAZING! The cheddar biscuit was so yummy too.

Tried several restaurants in the area, and this one is the least expensive. Guess you get what you pay for. The hamburger is average at best. No real beef taste. The bun is quite good, and so are the lettuce, tomato, and onion. My side was turnip greens...ghastly turnip greens. They tasted as if they were cooked with no spice... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
