This is a casual place that specializes in Gumbo, although there are other offerings. We've eaten here every time we stayed in Metairie and it is consistently good, and can get a bit crowded around meal times. They also do orders to go. The wait...More

I have to eat here every time I am in New Orleans and have a car to get the Metairie. It is not a fancy place - and some might be turned off by it. However, like the City, it has lots of personality -...More

It is a very small place and usually crowded around meal times. We've had several different kinds of gumbo and all were very good. They also have good shrimp poboys.

I didn’t personally care for the gumbo as it had a very earthy flavor. Neither one of us care for it though I’ve heard many people love Chef Ron’s. Just not my cup of gumbo. However the service was outstanding.

Everyone I know agrees that Chef Ron's serves the best gumbo in New Orleans. And staff is wonderful. A local favorite and "hidden gem" in Metairie.

This restaurant resembles a (down at the dump) truck stop from the outside and I had passed it many times without dreaming of going in. Big mistake. The several types of gumbo (and I tried four) have no equal. The interior is quite pleasant. The...More
