Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

  In honor of Cinco De Mayo I had to eat some Tex-Mex food today!  My favorite place for that type of cuisine is El Paso (Report #9).  But on Cinco De Mayo, an illegal alien would have a better chance of getting into Trump Tower than I would have getting into that place.  It’s… Continue reading Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

  I was in the mood for sushi so I decided to give Tennou a try.  Small place, but nice.  The only hot tea they have is green tea.  If you order it the pot comes out without tea bags in it, so it’s brewed ahead of time.  No waiting for it to steep. The… Continue reading Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

  I normally wouldn’t review a national chain but I’m a serious burger lover.  That doesn’t mean I’d review joints like Burger King or McDonald’s, but just the special burger places, like Atomic Burger (Report #35), Desi Vegas (Report #1), Ground Patti (Report #13), Mooyah (Report #67), New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (Report #25), Red… Continue reading Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

That’s Amore Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #90

  Today seemed like a good day for a Chicago deep dish pizza, so we headed to this place.  It’s located on St. Charles Ave., right on the historic St. Charles Streetcar Line, so you can watch the streetcars, “trolleys” to people who don’t know any better, pass by as you dine.  It’s the oldest… Continue reading That’s Amore Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #90

Palace Buffet, Biloxi, MS Report #89

  The Palace Buffet is located in the Palace Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.  I normally wouldn’t consider reviewing a casino buffet but there’s one thing about this one that makes it special that I think readers should know about.  The Mississippi Gulf Coast is dotted with casinos, but this one is the ONLY smoke free… Continue reading Palace Buffet, Biloxi, MS Report #89

Robin’s Wharf Dockside Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #88

  I saw this place on Groupon and thought the menu looked good, so I figured I’d cross the lake from New Orleans and give it a try.  Pretty place.  Right on a waterway that gives you access to Lake Pontchartrain.  You can pull your boat up, dock it, even gas it up if needed,… Continue reading Robin’s Wharf Dockside Seafood Restaurant, Slidell, LA Report #88

Sassafras Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #87

*************** PERMANENTLY CLOSED ***************   Before I started blogging I used to give short restaurant reports on Facebook.  People kept telling me I should start a blog, so for the first time in my life I listened to people.  Back then, I went to this restaurant.  I reported about it on Facebook and commented on… Continue reading Sassafras Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #87

Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86

Located in a little strip mall on Veterans Hwy. in Metairie, this is a great place for po-boy sandwiches.  Down south here the word “Parran” means Godfather and “Nannan” means Godmother.  A little tidbit of info if you didn’t know.  Plenty of seating with multiple dining rooms.  They also serve a lot more than po-boys… Continue reading Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86

Tujague’s, New Orleans, LA Report #85

  First and most important the name of this place is pronounced “Two-Jacks”.  Growing up in New Orleans I probably didn’t know that until I was 18 or so.  Just drove passed it numerous times with no idea how to pronounce it.  It’s been a restaurant since 1856, making it the second oldest restaurant in… Continue reading Tujague’s, New Orleans, LA Report #85

Lil G’s Kajun Restaurant, Belle Chasse, LA Report #84

  Another Louisiana Hwy. 23 restaurant report (see report numbers 16 and 78), which is the highway that dead ends at the Gulf of Mexico, at the “toe” of the boot Louisiana is shaped like.  I ate dinner at this place maybe a decade ago and I guess maybe I wasn’t too impressed since I… Continue reading Lil G’s Kajun Restaurant, Belle Chasse, LA Report #84
