Want the tastiest and freshest donuts? Goodys is your answer! I stop in every morning I have work on the west bank! I can't pass this place up without telling the sweetness of the glaze donuts cooking and fresh coffee roastimg. There a reason why it's been here since I was born and still running!

It's just a small unassuming,ace on the side of the road and unless you're out for an adventure, I'm sure you wouldn't stop there, but we did and we were surprised but the welcoming greeting we got which actually started in the parking lot. Once inside, it was quickly recognizable that the place was in need of a lot of... More

Being that I enjoy diners (they typically serve great food), I could not pass up Goodys Cafe. Pros- The waitress working there was really friendly. The food was decent. I ordered 2 breakfast sandwiches to go. The bacon was cooked perfectly and so we're the eggs. Cons- The biscuits were okay. Just okay. I had high hopes for them... They... More

If you are looking for a quick and hearty cook to order breakfast, Goody's Cafe in Gretna is the place to go. The service is good, the staff friendly and the prices are very reasonable. My only complaint - the bacon was a bit under cooked.

I honestly don't know how to rate this one. The food is a 5 star without a doubt. The Tiger Burger has the best of them beat. Served with Cajun fries. $9.95 without fries $7.95 However. The minute you walk in you slip & slide all over the greasy/soapy floor. It's definitely a greasy spoon type place but the food... More

we ate here several times - easy stop for breakfast. plenty of food - or you can order just what you want. sometimes the staff seems a little rattled but they do get your food to you & more coffee as wanted. Make sure to check out the doughnuts! And for convenience there's a drive up window.
