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.

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.

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.

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 atmosphere make up for it plenty!

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.

Franky & Johnny's is a charmingly atmospheric neighborhood joint, a magnet for genial, salt-of-the-earth blue-collar types and fans of crisp, batter-fried perfection and sizable seafood and New Orleans staples. The red-and-white-checkerboard tablecloths lend a down-home, Mom's kitchen touch to the relaxing surroundings, while the long wooden bar offers a wealth of chatty opportunities. Everything's good here; any of the sandwiches are excellent, and fare from pork chops to hamburger steak and fried chicken is satisfying and plentiful. A great place for lunch meetings or just hanging out.
