Chef Ron’s Gumbo Stop, Metairie, La. Report #45

I’ve always said if you go somewhere to get gumbo, and it’s got tomatoes in it, they don’t know what they’re doing.  I have to give Chef Ron a pass on that.  He puts tomatoes in his gumbo for whatever reason and it’s still good.  In fact, if you want to know what real New… Continue reading Chef Ron’s Gumbo Stop, Metairie, La.

Swegs Kitchen, , Metairie, La. Report #41

I decided to eat healthy today and I heard this was the place to do it.  I heard right.  The first thing that impresses you when you walk in this place is how spotlessly clean, neat and well lit it is.  Even the restrooms are impressive!  The menu is loaded with healthy items to accommodate… Continue reading Swegs Kitchen, , Metairie, La.

Atomic Burger, Metairie, La. Report #35

When I try a new burger place I go with the simplest burger they offer to kind of set a baseline.  No sense in trying something more exotic if their simple burger isn’t any good.  So I ordered the Atomic Burger.  I asked what the “A.B. Sauce” was and was told it was a combo… Continue reading Atomic Burger, Metairie, La. Report #35

Café Du Monde, Metairie, La. Report #32

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

Sucre’, Metairie, La. Report #28

I’ve always took the same attitude towards my desserts as I did my women.  I don’t care if they’re ugly, as long as they’re sweet.  But, if you’re not like me and like pretty dessert, this is the place for you. This was the Metairie location.  They also have a couple locations in New Orleans. … Continue reading Sucre’, Metairie, La. Report #28
