Two times too many

Took out of town friends (for the second time) here and for the second time we were disappointed with the crawfish. Both times they were terribly overcooked and mushy. Won't be making this mistake again. My suggestion would be to skip the "world famous" place and go to Big Fisherman on Magazine.

Famous but Overrated

This used to be one of my favorite neighborhood places, but after Katrina, its gone downhill at a rapid pace. The gumbo often tastes like it was burned and generally, the quality of the food is not anywhere near what it used to be, sadly. The beer and boiled crawfish still a safe bet, but thats it. For sure, not worth the wait.

excellent

This place is a hole in the wall, but its for mature groups, has cheap beer, is in a great night spot and feels like you're dining in someone's house. Try the fries for vegetarians, they have great po-boys and the gator soup, my meat eating friends seem to love.

A great place for lunch

Decided to try this place after reading good reviews online, and it was a hit! We had po' boys and they were absolutely delicious, they use very good oil to deep fry it all. The service was incredibly friendly and warm. And the prices were cheaper than a lot of other places in town that aren't even as good, so you're getting quite a deal! It is a little bit of a hole in the wall place, but the food and friendly ... view more

Now This Is Local

Now this place is off the tourist beaten path, but if you can find it, it's worth it. This is very typical Lousiana food the way the local types eat it. The neighborhood atmosphere here is priceless.

Out Of The Way And Worth It

Franky & Johnny's is out of the way, but worth it. The food is down home and not fancy. It's the kind of place where 2-4 beers goes perfect with lunch! The soft shell crab po'boy and a couple of Abita ambers really got the trip off to a great start.

John Gresham's haunt

I read about this place in Gresham's book and decided to try it while in N.O. It's a great hangout place for lunch and a beer! Lots of college (Tulane and Loyola)folks. Food was good and plentiful. Go for the local color though.

It hit the spot!

Had a bad craving for some good N'Awlins seafood & needed someplace close to work. F&J's hit the spot! Service was prompt, food was hot, and my appetite was thoroughly satisfied. I recommend it to all!

try the cold crawfish

Get there early and ask to try the crawfish cold. This gives the mudbugs a chance to marinate in the pepper sauces and other spices overnight. Onion rings also rock at this place.

Cajun sampler

A favorite dinner and lunch spot for both tourists and locals, get there early or grab a pitcher and be patient because theres always a wait during tourist season. Great for local cuisine, try a stuffed artichoke or the red beans and rice and a salad on the side. If you like it spicy, get the Cajun House dressing. Amazing, but dont plan on kissing anyone for days. LOADED with garlic.
