Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

This place is technically called Bear’s Poboys at Gennaro’s because it’s in the same building as a very old Metairie bar that carries that name.  It was also called that to differentiate them from their other location on Veterans Blvd, which sadly closed down due to this Coronavirus pandemic. We had to sit outside today,… Continue reading Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

Chap’s is located in a very short strip mall on the side of a convenience store.  In fact, you can say it’s part of the store.  You can walk from the store into the restaurant, and vice versa.  That comes in handy if you want to grab a beer or an ICEE to go with… Continue reading Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

Joey K’s, New Orleans, LA Report #267

If you want plain and simple, no frills, delicious New Orleans food, this is the place for you!  I haven’t been here in years.  This is the kind of place when you get back, you wonder why you stayed away so long! We decided on: And the food! Notice the rustic table.  I like that!… Continue reading Joey K’s, New Orleans, LA Report #267

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

RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

If you ignore the construction going on in front, this is a nice looking place.  I’m not sure what they’re doing with the construction, but I saw a bunch of potted plants out there, so landscaping is in the near future.  It’ll probably be nicer looking then! This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right?  It’s that popular a po-boy shop.  And very old. Established in 1911. I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was… Continue reading Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

This place is in a building that used to be a restaurant called O’Brein’s Grille.  It was supposedly a fantastic fine dining restaurant, but it closed down after 10 years of operation.  I say “supposedly” because I kept putting off and never made it there to check it out for myself! A long time New… Continue reading Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242

Do you like baked potatoes?  Of course you don’t.  Unless you’re not normal.  If someone brought you just a plain, baked potato, you’d say, “What the hell is this?  Put some STUFF in it”!  At least some butter!  Even better some butter, sour cream and chives!  Even better-er, some butter, cheese sauce, cheddar cheese, chives,… Continue reading The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242
