I liked the food, however...the waiter was slooooow. He seemed rather annoyed to be there (in my opinion). He took the order and did bring it out. That was the last we saw of him until he brought the bill. You always check on the diners within 2 minutes of delivering their meal. You ASK if it is prepared to their liking and do they need anything else. YOU CHECK back every so often. You SMILE. Waiters like this is why I leave the 10% tip. If you are outstanding, I will tip 20% or even more. If you are having a bad day you leave it outside or do not go to work.

Not to sure about this place. Go when you are starving. The portions are huge, plenty left to take home.

Hard to get 5 stars from me, but excellent service and excellent food. DO NOT EAT HERE UNLESS YOU'RE STARVING! Huge (outrageous, really) portions. I can tell the bread and hamburger buns are all done in-house - hard to find such good bread. I got a burger and the meat was also very high quality - also hard to find (especially in a hamburger). Ate 3/4 of the burger and, sadly, barely touched the fries (wimp!). Went for lunch on a Friday. No wait. Food did take slightly longer than I'd expect to arrive at the table but the server made sure I was taken care of in the meantime. The only real disappointment was not having 2 or 3 other stomachs to fill since there were a lot of appealing items on the menu.

Awesome place to eat some authentic Louisiana style food. I would recommend this place to others. I had pasta and it was way, way more than I could finish. I love the ice tea, as well. This is not a place that you can eat every day because of the large portion sizes, but it is definitely a place that you should go with the entire family for special occasions. Just a nice family oriented pleasant environment.

The food was good, but ordered a salad and never received it. Asked if there was anything I could get for desert instead since the server never came back during the meal to check on us until we were finished. The manager had to be asked to come to the table (which is usually something that is done any time there is a problem). Was never to offered to be compensated in any way. Manager (cortez) never apologized or thanked us for our business of 2 of their higher dollar meals. Terrible customer service. The food is good and large portions, but not good enough to be treated this way considering as slow as they were. Even asked to be put in contact with store/general manager and was told their names are not to be given out, so could not resolve the problem at all.
