Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Thanks to the Coronavirus this is my first time dining INSIDE of a New Orleans restaurant since a lunch at Red’s Chinese on March 15th (which was delicious by the way).  Restaurants here were allowed to open up for dine in yesterday.

Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

Chap’s is located in a very short strip mall on the side of a convenience store.  In fact, you can say it’s part of the store.  You can walk from the store into the restaurant, and vice versa.  That comes in handy if you want to grab a beer or an ICEE to go with… Continue reading Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280

  We’re still navigating our way through the Coronavirus apocalypse, so every restaurant that is open only has pick up and delivery.  I’ve heard great things about this place for some time now.  I hate going to a new place and judging them based on take out food.  It seems to me a restaurant can’t… Continue reading Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280
