Joe’s Café, Marrero, LA Report #34

Looking at this place you’d think it was your typical donut shop but it’s a lot more.  This is the Lapalco location.  It’s open 24 hours and the full menu is available 24 hours a day.  I came here years ago just for their peanut butter and jelly donut and wanted that today.  I was… Continue reading Joe’s Café, Marrero, LA Report #34

Louisiana Purchase Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #30

I had a medical procedure today and as a result had to fast since Wednesday.  Therefore, I was seriously hungry.  As a result, I didn’t care about gourmet food for lunch.  I cared about a LOT of food.  Bad food.  Fried food.  Quantity over quality.  This place fits the bill. This place has a huge… Continue reading Louisiana Purchase Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #30

Zea Rotisserie Grill, Harvey, LA Report #29

  There are a few Zeas in the New Orleans metro area but none actually in New Orleans since the one on St. Charles Ave. closed down.  They specialize in rotisserie meats.  In their words they, “Use an authentic French open flame rotisserie for roasting our meats.  The rotation ensures that the meat is evenly… Continue reading Zea Rotisserie Grill, Harvey, LA Report #29

Chophouse, New Orleans, LA Report #27

It was my daughter’s birthday and she wanted to try this place for her birthday dinner.  Nice looking small steakhouse with a small piano bar, all of which is attached to the St. James hotel, so I guess if you eat and drink too much you can walk next door to get a room and… Continue reading Chophouse, New Orleans, LA Report #27

Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, LA Report #26

Long ago on a visit here they talked me into joining their members club.  My birthday is this month so they emailed me a $25 dollar off certificate.  That’s like a free entrée so I figured what the hell.  I’ll give them a visit. Forgot to take a pic of the inside of the place… Continue reading Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, LA Report #26

New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

  This place is a local chain with several locations around the New Orleans metro area.  They’ve been around since 1984 and are pretty good!  In spite of the name I find they don’t really have outstanding burgers.  If I want a good burger, I’d head elsewhere.  But I had been in the mood for… Continue reading New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

  There are five Legacy Kitchen locations.  This one technically is called “Legacy Kitchen, Steak + Chop” because as you can see on their menu they specialize in 28 day aged steaks and chops.  I’ve been to the location in Metairie and they only have two un-aged steaks on their menu.  I love the rustic… Continue reading Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

MANHATTAN LOCATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED.  ST. CHARLES LOCATION OPEN   Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations. You wouldn’t expect to find good gumbo, or gumbo period at a… Continue reading VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, LA Report #16

The place is called LA 23 BBQ because it’s on Louisiana Highway 23, also known as Belle Chasse Highway.  This is the highway that leads all the way down to the “toe” of the boot Louisiana is shaped like, mostly following the Mississippi River all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico.  You have… Continue reading LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, LA Report #16

Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, LA Report #15

********** PERMANENTLY CLOSED ********** Pretty place.  Nice fake tropical atmosphere with plenty of fake parrots, coconut and banana trees.  Lots of desserts, including beignets.  I’ve only been here for breakfast and that’s good enough for me.  The omelets are made with three eggs and described as “open faced”.  Numerous choices including the “build your own”… Continue reading Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, LA Report #15
