Swamp Room, Metairie, LA Report #425

This place is primarily a bar. Or as they describe themselves, a late night tavern. It has pool tables, dart boards, plenty of televisions to catch your favorite game, and a big bar in the middle to keep you properly liquored up! It’s also got something I’ve been hearing about for years. The Swamp Burger.… Continue reading Swamp Room, Metairie, LA Report #425

Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

We’re always looking for a new Sunday morning breakfast spot. Actually, since I sleep until 10:00 AM on Sundays, I actually should say “brunch” spot. We’re always in the mood for breakfast but end up not eating it until almost noon! That was the case when we decided to try this place today. When I… Continue reading Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

Steve’s Marina Restaurant, Long Beach, MS Report #423

Found myself on the Mississippi Gulf Coast today. That happens sometimes. I’ve been to this place before and knew the food was good, so we popped in for dinner. Nice looking place right on the beach.

Secret Thai Restaurant, Chalmette, LA Report #422

This place is located in an area known as Chalmette, down in St. Bernard Parish. When I think of St. Bernard, I think of seafood. In fact, I used to fish and crab down here a lot. The Parish is 2,159 square miles, of which only 378 are land. 1,781 square miles are water! So… Continue reading Secret Thai Restaurant, Chalmette, LA Report #422

Pho Bang Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #420

I was in the mood for Vietnamese food for lunch today. My absolute favorite place for Vietnamese, Tan Dinh, is now closed on Sundays.

Looks like the sign on the… Continue reading Pho Bang Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #420

Acme Oyster House, Metairie, LA Report #419

This place got it’s start in the French Quarter of New Orleans in 1910.

Trey Yuen, Mandeville, LA Report #418

I’ve been hearing great things about this place for decades. By decades, I don’t mean 20 years or so ago. I mean the 1980’s! The only reason I’ve never been until now is it’s not in New Orleans, which is where I live. It’s located across Lake Pontchartrain in Mandeville, LA. Their original location was… Continue reading Trey Yuen, Mandeville, LA Report #418

Po-Boy King, Metairie, LA Report #417

I was in the mood for a po-boy tonight. Specifically, a soft shelled crab po-boy. So if you want a good poboy shouldn’t you go to place called the Po-Boy KING?

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #416

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time, but it looked a little pricey and I’m allergic to spending money. Yesterday was my birthday and I was asked where I wanted to eat. My first question was, “You buying”? When the answer was “yes”, I knew the time had come. I love a… Continue reading Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #416
