Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

This place has been in business a long time.   It opened in 1952, and was built on wooden pilings over the water on Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana.  Hurricane Katrina destroyed the place, so they moved to this inshore location in a strip mall. Being in a strip mall, it doesn’t look very appealing… Continue reading Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

Salvo’s Seafood, Belle Chasse, LA Report #266

Besides being a sit down restaurant, this place is also a seafood market.  You can stop in and grab fresh or boiled seafood to go.  In fact, we’re just getting into crawfish season down here.  A couple at the table next to us ordered a big platter of boiled crawfish, and they looked delicious!  I… Continue reading Salvo’s Seafood, Belle Chasse, LA Report #266

Danny & Bonnie Seafood, Gretna, LA Report #191

I always thought this was just a fresh and boiled seafood stand, until someone told me I had to stop here for one of their shrimp po-boys because they were so good.  If you come here, and your approaching from the east, drive the speed limit.  That white SUV you see parked on the side… Continue reading Danny & Bonnie Seafood, Gretna, LA Report #191

Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86

Chubbie’s, New Orleans, LA Report #65

It’s hard to find a fried chicken joint that’s not part of some big chain like Popeye’s, KFC or Church’s, but on the Westbank of New Orleans there’s one, and it’s VERY good!  The line inside is a testament to that.  And Chubbie’s sells a lot more than fried chicken.  The only non-chicken food I’ve… Continue reading Chubbie’s, New Orleans, LA Report #65

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
