The fried chicken was great and hot. Love sweet potatoes in a honey sauce. Red beans and rice could have had more spices in it. My wife picked up a plate for the buffet and food was stuck to the bottom. My water glass had lipstick stains on it. Over all service was slow. Be prepared to ask again if you want additional service.

It took until several tables were seated after me, served drinks, gave food orders, received food orders and were halfway finished eating before someone finally stopped by and asked if I'd been helped. I asked for a glass a wine and some fries. Ten minutes later, the wine arrived, dripping and dribbling down the side of the glass. An additional ten minutes passed before a plate of cold, mushy fries showed up. I wanted to use the napkin and was surprised a low-level place like this had cloth napkins, but that plus was instantly removed when I found it still cold and wet, the utensils inside filmy and dirty. Gross. Worst airport stop of all time.

I was going to give 3 stars, but the servers were very friendly so I went up a star. A little slow filling drinks and it wasn't even that crowded but nice all the same. We all had the buffet. The food was good, but not the best fried chicken or pork chops I've had. The crawfish pie was good, the geens were very good, but the red beans and rice were a little bland. The bread pudding was very good. We had a group of 5 and spent over $100 and there was no alcohol so expect to spend a little. I'd probably choose Popeye's chicken over this style. This recipe is more of the buttery southern style, not spicy but still very good and cooked perfectly.

Had to wait 45mins to be seated. Then told food would take 35mins. 60mins later we finally got our salad. Place was half empty...must have been understaffed. But whatever, would not have come if we had known. Place was cold as well- they had the air conditioning on in late Nov, basically winter.

It's a walk from the quarter but it's a safe street and you can burn some calories before you dive into the Cajon buffet. Amazing food, try everything so just get the buffet like all the locals.

Just the experience of eating here is worth every cent. In the heart and soul of NOLA, it needs to be visited although their hours is not optimal. Not only is the food the epitome of southern home cooking, but the restaurant is an art museum in itself. Definitely hope to visit again.
