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.

Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, La. Report #26

Long ago on a visit here they talked me into joining their members club.  My birthday is this month so they emailed me a $25 dollar off certificate.  That’s like a free entree so I figured what the hell.  I’ll give them a visit. Forgot to take a pic of the inside of the place… Continue reading Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, La. Report #26

Nice looking place.  It’s pretty cool there at night and… Continue reading Johnny Longboats, West Palm Beach, Fl. Report #21

Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon, Metairie, La. Report #14

I forgot to take a picture of the place from the outside so I had to pull one up online to show what it looks like.  Bobby Hebert is a former QB for the New Orleans Saints.  He had a strong arm and was a real Louisiana Cajun, from Cut Off, Louisiana, so he had… Continue reading Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon, Metairie, La.

Ground Pati, Gretna, La. Report #13

Nice, casual place.  They start you out with free peanuts, which is always nice.  The buffalo wings here are different.  You get hot, fresh, delicious fried wings, and buffalo sauce and either blue cheese or ranch dressing on the side to dip them in.  They’re great. There are many different burger options here.  My son… Continue reading Ground Pati, Gretna, La. Report #13
