My son is a freshman at Loyola on St. Charles. He says he never has enough $$ to eat at any of the restaurants that serve good local fare, creole, Cajun, etc. I know he's taking the street car to the quarter and reading menus and not having any luck. I've named a few places (i.e. Casamento's on Magazine & The Gumbo Shop in the Qrtr.) but with me being in Chicago I'm unable to help him. Hopefully some NOLA posters can name a few less expensive spots.
