“Rats in this restaurant!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

Filthy place with sightings of two rats running around the restaurant while we were waiting for our food. Waitress apologized but said it happens all the time. If this is what the customer area is like I shudder to think how bad the kitchen is. Doesn't New Orleans have a board of health?

“Good for Po boy late night”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We came for dinner as this was the only place open within close walking distance from One Shell Plaza. We all ordered different Po Boys and v=we were all happy with our order. I took the fired oysters off the buns and enjoyed them. THE Servce was marginal as it tool forever to find our waiter to pay the bill and head back to the office.

“Not good at all.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

I'm not really sure how to ride a bad review. The place was not very clean. Our table was dirty. And our napkins, our cloth napkins, were also stained and dirty. This was our waitresses first of night, so I can't really fault her. She had only been on the job for three hours. Our order took over 30 minutes for sandwiches and hamburgers. When the order arrived, our food was warm at best but not at the right temperature. It was cooler than it should've been. The busboy was having a bad night evidently. By the crash of glasses and dishes that he made when clearing the tables and by the slamming the tub down when he was done. And I don't think that he ever smiled. Maybe he just hates his job. There are so many places to eat down here in New Orleans, there is no need to stop here. Move along. Nothing to see here.
