La Chilanga Bar & Grill, Kenner, LA Report #318

A coworker told me this was a good place for authentic Mexican food.  I typed “La Chilanga” into my Spanish to English translator and it says it means “woman from Mexico city”.  Ok.  Let’s just get to the food. We decided on a small cheese dip to go with the complimentary chips and salsa, a… Continue reading La Chilanga Bar & Grill, Kenner, LA Report #318

Pollo Campero, Kenner, LA Report #307

I normally don’t report on chain restaurants unless they’re something special.  But it’s hard to consider this a chain since this is the only one in the entire state of Louisiana!  The next nearest one is in Houston, TX., which is about a 5 1/2 hour drive. This place started out in 1971 as a… Continue reading Pollo Campero, Kenner, LA Report #307

Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Back in March of 2019 I discovered this place called the American Pie Diner.  Loved the place!  I was going to be a regular.  So of course it promptly went out of business. At least the building didn’t stay vacant long.  Daisy Dukes opened another location there. I knew about their French Quarter location, but… Continue reading Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Little Chinatown, Kenner, LA Report #258

I belong to a food lovers group on social media, and whenever someone asks where they can get good Chinese food, this place is mentioned.  Multiple times.  I figured I’d come in and see what all the fuss was about. Before coming in I checked out the menu online.  They have a lot of dishes… Continue reading Little Chinatown, Kenner, LA Report #258

Gendusa’s Italian Market, Kenner, LA Report # 256

Someone I work with lives pretty far from this place, and drives miles past a lot of good Italian restaurants to come here.  Now I know why. Not a huge place.  There’s a small building next door to the main restaurant to handle overflow diners, which is a where we sat.  I was wondering if… Continue reading Gendusa’s Italian Market, Kenner, LA Report # 256

Brick Oven Café, Kenner, LA Report #230

After a delicious Italian dinner last night at Venezia’s, followed by Italian desserts at Brocoto’s, you’d think I’d want a change.  No. We were in the mood for pizza, so why not make Italian food the theme for this weekend? I love this place.  The staff is always friendly and the menu pretty extensive.  We… Continue reading Brick Oven Café, Kenner, LA Report #230

2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

If you want high quality Tex Mex food, DO NOT come here!  As a kid I used to love a place called Pancho’s Mexican Buffet.  In fact, I think it was the first time I experienced an “all you can eat” buffet in my life!  There are no more Pancho’s in the New Orleans area,… Continue reading 2 Amigos Mexican Buffet, Kenner, LA Report #196

American Pie Diner, Kenner, LA Report #188

**********  PERMANENTLY CLOSED  **********     I’ve passed by this place dozens of times and never thought about stopping in.  Soon I have to pick up someone from the airport with a late flight, and was trying to find restaurants open late in the area.  This place is open 24/7, so I looked at the… Continue reading American Pie Diner, Kenner, LA Report #188

Harbor Seafood & Oyster Bar, Kenner, LA Report #165

  I remember dining at this place a couple decades ago, but didn’t remember how the food was.  I think back then there was only one dining room.  There are three now, and a nice bar.  Also an attached seafood market which I checked out.  All the seafood looked nice and fresh, and they will… Continue reading Harbor Seafood & Oyster Bar, Kenner, LA Report #165
