We decided to try this place for lunch and arrived right at noon which is peak time. The line was out the door, but moved reasonably quickly. You could really tell the staff was working as quickly as possible to make their customers happy, which was a pleasant change from other NOLA restaurants lately. Every free second they had they were cleaning tables, tidying, and bussing meals to the customers. I was so impressed with their work ethic and hospitality. Sounds so simple, but lately our dining experiences in New Orleans have been met with arrogant waitstaff who think they're too good for their jobs.
My friend had the paneed rabbit po boy and I had the slow roasted duck po boy - both were very, very good. The onion rings were excellent as well, perfectly seasoned and fresh. Jacque himself brought out our order and apologized for the craziness, which we didn't mind since we frequent Jacque Imo's often and are used to the hustle and bustle. He also went around the restaurant making sure everyone was happy - what a wonderful owner and chef! By 12:45pm, there was absolutely no line. So don't be hesitant about going just because of a long line, it moves fast or if you arrive a little later you won't have to wait at all. It's completely worth the trip and absolutely delicious!
