Great food, great customer service, & enough powder sugar on your biegnets to last you into the next year! I'm sooo glad to have finally made it over to Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen this past Sun (around 5:30pm) for my birthday weekend!
LOCATION: We parked in the garage parking just around the corner on Kittridge St ($4 flat rate) simply because we didn't feel like driving around to find parking. Greeted upon entrance & party of 4 got seated immediately. The restaurant isn't really large...probably around 8 4-seater-tables & another 8 2-seater-tables. Table & chairs are workable, but my bf sat across from his dad & they kept bumping their feet w/ each other. The 4-seater-tables, inner chairs had no arm rest whereas outter chairs did...might make a difference for those who prefer/need no arm rests.
SERVICE: Just great! Our waiter-Anthony was thorough checking in on us. We did notice tho, he gave straws to only me & bf who ordered drinks other than H20; the parents had to put in a request ;-) BF dropped a spoon (not enuf elbow space @ the table for him really), Anthony's colleague instantly comes in to pick up the spoon & hands off new/clean spoon to bf (not bad, right!) Even upon finishing up our meals, nice woman (heak could've been Angeline) came over to ask how was our experience & hopes we come back. As dad said, ""The food definitely has 'come-back-ability'""
FOOD: GREAT! Already have plans of other items we'd like to try *tee-hee*! I had the Strawberry Lemonade & bf had ""Swamp Water"" (half lemonade & half ice tea) both have free refills *kudos*; mine's cool, taste like it had soda or sparkling sumthin' in there...Swamp Water is a good recommendation for those who like unsweeten tea I think. Apps were Grilled Boudin Sausage & Hush Puppies both were good, especially Hush Puppies w/ Honey Butter *yummy* Moms had Penne Pasta; she enjoyed that there was chckn practically w/ every bite of pasta. BF & pops had Cajun Mixed Grill..I tasted this & everything was great! The potato salad had mini red potatoes & my goodness it was reeally cold *kudos* I had (ahem) the Voo Doo Shrimp also a great dish! Think I would've preferred more rice w/ the sauce from the shrimp, but that's just meeh. Everything gets a recommendation!
DESSERT/BIEGNETS: All I can say ladies is it's completely OK to have a lil' white stuff around your mouth area ...that is if you're eating these delicious hot/fresh beignets! Get in here & try 'em! Scrum-didly-umptous!!!
Final tab for 2 drinks, 2 apps, 4 entrees, & 2 desserts...$95 bucks & some change. While enjoying our meals we saw plenty of other plates coming outta the kitchen to other patrons: Shrimp Po'Boy Sandwiches, Jambalaya, Rib Eye Steak & Shrimp, Fried Chkn & Sweet Mashed Potatoes, & more. Yes, we will be back!
