Extremely friendly service and easy menu. Jambalaya and fish gumbo outstanding. This place is carry out as well but sitting in is better. Outdoor seating also there.

First time I've eaten here. I liked it a lot! If you like spicy flavorful food and are looking for something different, this place is for you. Reasonably priced and good portions. I will be going back to try the gumbo.

J. Gumbo's always serves great food. Try the Bumblebee Stew or the Voodoo Chicken individually or make your meal a combo of the two. There food ranges from mild to spicy, and the meal prices are reasonable.

Ok for what it is I guess but I was a little disappointed. I hoped for a larger menu and a little more authentic food. Went for lunch right at noon and the place was dead; doesn't seem like the kind of place that'll last...More

The set up is similar to Chipoltes but with Cajun food. You order your food at the front of the restaurant and they bring your food to you. They let you sample the food before you make your order. Very tasty but a little steep...More

Must try the bumblebee stew!!! There's a reason it's been a favorite entrée in Gahanna for many years. I also recommend the gumbo which tastes soooooo fantastic. My favorite to go item is a combo of half voodoo chicken and half bumblebee stew. That way...More
