Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

A few nights ago I did something I hadn’t done in years. Looked at the restaurant section in Groupon. I used to do it pretty often to get ideas on new places to try, plus it saves you some money. Nothing wrong with that! There was a deal in there for this place. I bought… Continue reading Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

Po-Boy King, Metairie, LA Report #417

I was in the mood for a po-boy tonight. Specifically, a soft shelled crab po-boy. So if you want a good poboy shouldn’t you go to place called the Po-Boy KING?

The city of Slidell is located across the eastern side of Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. This place is in a section of the city referred to as “Olde Towne”. Quaint little area.

Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933.

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

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

Located in a little strip mall on Veterans Hwy. in Metairie, this is a great place for po-boy sandwiches.  Down south here the word “Parran” means Godfather and “Nannan” means Godmother.  A little tidbit of info if you didn’t know.  Plenty of seating with multiple dining rooms.  They also serve a lot more than po-boys… Continue reading Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86
