Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

For being on a main street, this place is really off the beaten path. If you look at the maps above in the 3rd and 4th pictures, it’s about the last thing you find before you hit Lake Pontchartrain and can’t go any further. So why even come this way? There is a Riverboat Casino… Continue reading Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

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

Gerald’s Famous Burgers & Donuts, Arabi, LA Report #291

We had just finished lunch at this Brazilian place called Quitutes, and were hankering something sweet for dessert.  I rarely get into St. Bernard Parish but had heard good things about this donut places, so we headed over for a dozen to bring home. Now, it was about 2:00 PM when we walked in the… Continue reading Gerald’s Famous Burgers & Donuts, Arabi, LA Report #291

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

*******   PERMANENTLY CLOSED   ******* 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… 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
