They had our CR-V for two months working on it. The problem seems to be trying to do quality work in this post-Katrina business reality. They have gotten most of their pre-Katrina employees back but after the storm, they have had supply issues as well as a much higher work load as other shops in the region are still closed. It is an inconvenience to have a vehicle in the shop for two months but I realize that I have to have different expectations in our Post-K recovery. The main thing is they did a good job with their repair work which was extensive from an accident.

The focus is often on the great po' boys at R&O's but I also highly recommend their thin crust pizza. I had always eaten the R&O Po' Bpy special but one day I decided on pizza and I have never regretted it since. Waitresses are usually nice and attentive. The only issue I have is it is a family favorite and when it is crowded with loud and crying children, it can get annoying. But if you crave a great pizza or roast beef po' boy, it is worth the suffering.
