I work down the street from this Rouse so I shop at this location several times a week. I have to say, the best employee there is the older bald guy who usually takes care if the wine/liquor area although I've seen him working in other departments. He is so sweet, patient, and helpful. I often see managers standing around the store having conversations about thing that aren't always work related. And only once has one asked me if I needed help after observing me walk back and forth in search of an item. Be careful with the produce. There is no quick selection of fruits and veggies because you will often find something rotten. Avocados are usually either rock hard or so soft if you squeeze them, they burst. I've had a friend purchase a few frozen items that had mold on the food once defrosted. Granted, out of thousands of items something like that could happen and staff wouldn't know because it's packaged, but the produce is so obvious. Perhaps if managers offered up a little more help to those poking around produce they could push some sales so we aren't forced to pick through rotting as wilted items.

I dined at Jacques Imo's on a Wednesday night. It took about 40 minutes for us to get seated. Once we were seated and had been served our salads, it took over 30 minutes to get our entrees. Our dinner took approximately two hours and 20 minutes. My friend and I enjoyed the food very much. I could not finish mine. Each entree comes with two sides and a spinach salad. Jacques Imo's is noisey and very crowded. The tables are very close to each other. While serving a table next to ours, a waiter bumped into my friend repeatedly and even knocked the salt from our table onto the floor. The customers were mostly young. Music played throughout the restaurant. It sounded like music that would appeal to college students and 20-somethings. Although I liked the food, I will not go back because of the long waits, the crowded tables, and the noise. If these kinds of things don't bother you, then I'm sure you will enjoy Jacques Imo's.
N. Rampart Store (also called the Orange Store - it’s a neighborhood secret.): ½ a block to the right of B&B, @ corner of Kerlerec St. Get ready for lots of food. The Vietnamese ladies start their day baking French Bread for their scrumptious poboy sandwiches. It’s a Workingman's place to grab lunch. Awesome fried shrimp po-boy, good fried chicken and Chinese dishes. All cooked to order, so you might call ahead to avoid long wait. Portions are HUGE, so don’t over order. You can always walk back for more! Take out only.
