This restaurant is delicious. The atmosphere is very casual. Real New Orleans style food. We had the Killa Fries and a Muffaletta. We left stuffed.

South side offers wonderful down home cooking with Military Memorabilia in walls and ceiling. This Restraunt is a must visit if you are a veteran or serving in the arm forces. Great burgers made your way!

Stumbled on this place - and glad we did. Killa Fries are exactly that. Famous Rueben is rightly named. Great Po Boys too. Excellent lunch and will return

Not quite sure which bridge you are speaking of. However the restaurant is in Slidell. I stated at the Hampton Inn just off the interstate. It is a mile or so west of the Hampton Inn. You will turn left at the last red light... More
