“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

This spot had a great atmosphere for locals as well as tourists. The dishes are a mix of Cajun and Dirty South cooking. Owners are great people and everyone is friendly , if your in town definitely a place to go. He'll who can beat Mario Kart 64 as well a Goldeneye late nights. The hush puppies are to die for and the house branded wine is great as well.

“UNBELIEVABLE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

I can't even put a star on this restaurant. First of all, the waitress couldn't even get a simple order of diet coke for 20 minutes. THEN, when we placed the order it wasn't until another 15 minutes before the dumb waitress came back and said they were out of ribs! Meanwhile, there was only one other table in the restaurant, and ribs are supposed to be one of their specialities. Jesse (?) came out apologized, said there was no mashed potatoes and gravy because they were slammed and busy but it wasn't their busy season. (huh) They replaced the ribs with brisket that was totally uneatable! The other food , poboy and pulled pork was not very good either. My daughter ordered pulled pork SANDWICH and it came with NO ROLL!!!! Another 5 times of asking and 10 minutes of waiting still no roll. My other daughters had to take apart their own food to give to their sister their bread! Unbelievable. Rather than trying to fix the food the people offered to give everyone SHOTS!!!!!!!!!!! This restaurant has no clue how to be in business, cook , or serve. It is supposed to be known for their southern comfort food and bar. Meanwhile even the bartender couldn't get the drinks right or on time. DO NOT WASTE your TIME ENTERING this facility. It will probably not be in business for much longer nor should it be!

Great food, friendly and lively, tucked away beneath Aspen brewery and beside the White House tavern it is well worth seeking out, and they had the best soup at soupskol! Food was lovely too!

“Have these people ever tasted their food?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Worst gumbo and red beans and rice I've ever had. Shrimp poboy had 12 tiny shrimp on it and was barely 8" and I paid over $12 for it. I don't understand how their doors are still open but I'm sure it won't be long before they close. A little more effort would take them a long way. They couldn't go to Louisiana and find gumbo that tasted that bad even if they ate it directly off the concrete streets of Bourbon

“Lunch outside was fine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

It was a beautiful quiet day in Aspen, so we had lunch at their sidewalk tables. Food was fine and we enjoyed the small town feel of Aspen between seasons.
