Poor service, rude manager. My po- boy sandwich was horrible and when i complained, the manager stated "if you dont like it, go somewhere else". That is no way to treat a paying customer. I have eaten here in 1prior occasion with no problem and returned this time to be treated with no respect. They need to re-train their personnel... More

My favorite is the Chris's Special. Slow cooked roast beef with the au jus, ham, cabbage, swiss on your choice of bun. The fried shrimp and oyster are good too. I enjoy the gumbo on those chilly days and nights. Be aware that it can be crazy at lunch during Lent. Plan appropriately or utilize their calling in drive thru.

Wow! Stopped here after the bakery, so glad we did. We had great service, prices were good and lots of food. You won't leave here hungry. Had the special and my husband had the cajun chicken as well as the gumbo. All was good, gumbo could have had a bit more flavor, but still good! Our waiter was excellent, very... More

I had the Chris Speical Po-Boy with the Beef Au Jus Sauce -it was very good. I had not read the reviews before I went -the Residence Inn sent us over -because it was in walking distance. The service was fantastic

For my most recent visit, i decided to try the mufaletta. I have had the ones in new orleans so my standard for comparison is pretty reasonable and not exactly low.... Fortunately for me, the mufaletta was very good. The size was quite large. The 1/2 size is enough to fill most humans and can be easily shared by 2... More

Wow, awesome. Food: Had the ‘Chris Special’ of Roast Beef, Ham, Swiss. Bread was from Breaux Bridge, and really taste like the best of them! Gumbo was very good. Service: Was fantastic, the waitress brought numerous refills of tea and sodas for the kids. Stopped by for small talk when she had time. Atmosphere was very relaxing. Price: Very affordable...

The crowded restaurant indicated its popularity. We placed our orders for sandwiches and sodas, and waited to be called. Mine was catfish po-boy; sisters had crawfish and shrimp, and we shared all around. Absolutely the best--all of them! Almost no wait, and we ate inside, tho they do have outside seating. Music was zydeco and we felt like dancing afterward.... More
