Best restaurant I’ve found so far downtown. Authentic food. More of an order to go place for lunch and not sit down restaurant. Would recommend placing your order online since they get swamped around noon 👍🏽
A GEM! Food was INCREDIBLE. Open late on a Saturday night. I had a glitch with ordering online with chownow but when I got there to pick up the lady working got it sorted out and had my food ready to go within 10 minutes. Fresh, made to order. SO DELICIOUS. Quaint quiet little spot. Nice little escape from the madness going on right outside on a Saturday night. I didn’t get a chance to try the beneigts, so bummed about that. But I’ll definitely be back one day. Highly recommend.I had the bourbon street pasta and my husband had 6piece wings. Zero complaints. Atmosphere, food, customer service. 5 stars for all!
I've been meaning to review this spot but I never have my phone with me while I'm working. Finally got the chance to take some pics. I've had a few different items and they've been pretty good. I raved about their mac and cheese being so good to everyone at work and now they go and switch it up. I went yesterday and it was horrible. I also had the cabbage and greens before both are good, the potato salad was too mustardy for me. I've had the boudain balls, hit and miss sometimes. Today I ordered what was suppose to be a 8 piece wing and two sides turned out to be a six piece instead! I was pissed because I was already back at work, I looked inside the container at the restaurant to make sure it was lemon pepper but I didn't think I needed to count the wings...next time I will know better! Oh yeah, the lemon pepper seasoning is delicious! I attached pics of the good Mac and cheese and also the new nasty Mac. With a little more consistency with the food and more order accuracy this place with be great! Also the prices are not bad. Forgot mention the breakfast...it was the best grits from a restaurant I've ever had! I had the pork chops and the bacon both were perfect. I didn't like the pancakes they were on the thick side, and the scrammbled eggs were great. Bacon cheeseburgers are huge and made with homemade beef type patties.
I Ordered Here For Lunch And It Wasnt Bad. My Mama Is From NOLA So I Do Take My Cajun Food Very Seriously. I Feel Like My Pasta Coulda Been A Lil More Seasoned But Other Den That The Chicken Was Verryyyyyyy Good. I Would Probably Try And Get Something Else From Them.

Upon arriving it was tucked away in downtown Houston. Very small space for such amazing people to be hidden away. First time hearing about this place and wanted to try their food. I ordered the Bourbon Street Pasta. I will admit that it did taste similar to Mac n cheese only because it did look like it had that cheese sauce on it, everything though was absolutely delicious.I also had the Seafood Gumbo, which I love gumbo... the shrimp were soggy, and I couldn't tell if I had of the other ingredients. Not sure how I felt about the emptiness of the crab claw meat. The roux for the gumbo was great.Overall, it was a good spot to check out.
Yooooooo. If you looking for that New Orleans authentic taste in the downtown area do not...... I repeat do not pass this place by. I got the jambalaya (chicken and sausage) and beignets. $17. Can't miss. Another good bang for ya buck.
A coworker introduced me to this place. I got the oxtail plate which is every Friday, it was at a great price of 18.00 and they give you a large portion. The 2 sides that I got were Mac and cheese and cabbage. The Mac was with cheese sauce vs baked but it was good, I loved the flavor of the cabbage. The oxtails and rice were good, I slow cook my oxtails to super tender but that’s my personal preference, theirs were tender but still I would have cooked them slower and lower but trust me, they were still good. Prices are reasonable, atmosphere is nice, staff are friendly and next time I’ll try the pork chops! I will be back!!!
Amazing food, great/fast service, great serving size!!! The beignets🤤🤤. I want to become one of their beignets!!!
There is not enough talk about this place!!!! Food is amazing, service is quick even with food made to order and the owner Reed is so friendly. Tip: put honey on those beignets!!! I have no photo of the beignets because they are GONE!!!
Had the chicken and sausage gumbo. right amount of spice, reasonable prices, will be back.

Friendly staff was a plus. happy someone told me about this place.
Beignets are to die for I still order them online just because they taste just like back home so good I love them melt in your mouth even when they are not warm ! The pasta is great wings crunchy and crispy the fish crispy and good paired with the grits creamy and buttery to perfection not too much oil or butter I will always come back !
Gumbo, fried shrimp poboy,& Beignets were phenomenal. Staff are very friendly and professional, taste just like Louisiana cooking and will be my go to every time I’m in Houston.
