    We like Luke's and eat there about once a month. The ""great"" salad described by other reviewers is to me the weak point. For the price of their steaks they could at least afford to toss in a couple of more of those canned black olives. We always enjoyed the mussel appetizer (pre Kitchen Confidential). The steaks vary from decent to very good. Our last visit was mixed: 2 duplicate steaks ordered MR, one nearly raw and tough, the other MW, but they made an adjustment. Patronize the independants!

    Our party of 10 universally enjoyed our meals and the prices are not outrageous by French 1/4 standards. Try to reserve a seat upstairs where it seems like things are a bit quieter. Warning: Do not attempt to make Chef Paul's delicious Mollasses Muffins at home!

    I had a wonderful and inexpensive Duck L'Orange here a few years ago, and wanted to return as soon as possible. But you can't go back can you? Our recent experience involved plates of indistinguishable runny mush and rice. One was puported to be 'gumbo', another 'etoufee', another 'shrimp creole' etc with the taste being as unique as the appearance of each dish.

    Anybody who has read The Tummy Trilogy -- Calvin Trillen's ode to food with an emphasis on New Orleans, will no doubt head straight to Acme for an Oyster Loaf upon arriving in the Crescent City. Unfortunately, they seem to have long ago given up on subtlety in favor of quantity,and like so many places in New Orleans, traded in their soup ladle for a slop shovel.

    If you like watery, ""green"" chile, sloshed over dense, soggy rellenos (made with eggroll wrappers), don't miss this popular spot. 1 burrito/relleno combination, 1 soft drink = $11.00.

    On our first trip to this restaurant we had a 2 year old in tow, and they were obviously not anxious to seat us, and we eventually left. I was stilll curious because it is an intriguing place. So against my firm principals on not rewarding poor service, I have returned twice on subsequent visits, and quite enjoyed it. No - the ""barbequed"" shrimp are not smothered in BBQ sauce, and the ""heads on"" presentation might be intimidating and possibly unappetizing to someone who did not realize that shrimp actually have heads (and eyes, and long long whiskers). This place is not a culinary superstar, but is a completely worthwhile and enjoyable experience.

    We had a nice anniversary dinner here, and have no complaints. Great steaks cooked as ordered, good sides and a nice atmosphere that while crowded, was not nearly as noisy to this extremely noise sensitive individual as other reviews had warned. It is a bit pricey by Denver standards, but not ridiculous. The valet parking was not quite up to standard and left me with a permanent souvenier in the form of a small new dent, but rather than let me find it later, they owned up to it, and offered to take care of it.

    Don't let the fact that this place is smoky, noisy, and many of the patrons sport tatoos deter you. They serve a tangy, hot green chile, and great burritos all cooked up right across the counter. We've eaten here on and off for years, and it never changes.
