Dickey’s Barbeque Pit, Gretna, LA Report #259

Yes, I know this is a chain.  Yes, I know the food snobs will say I’m an idiot for eating at a chain.  And yes, I could care less.  If the food is good, I’m there!

Metro Cafe Diner, Stone Mountain, GA Report #234

Ok, this should be my last out of town report on this road trip.  I’m heading back to New Orleans tomorrow.  I say “should be”, because no telling where I may stop and eat on the way home.

Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219

I’ve heard good things about the BBQ here so I had to come check it out.  Nice looking place, with seating inside and out.  There’s a stage outside so I’m assuming they have live entertainment at times.  I was going to ask about that, but I was so hungry and excited about the food I… Continue reading Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219

MANHATTAN LOCATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED.  ST. CHARLES LOCATION OPEN   Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations.

LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, LA Report #16
