[quote]Damn, I actually thought that one was decent. The one on the corner of Essen/Perkins is the worst establish known to man.[/quote]
Yes, that one is AWFUL. I think I've only been to the O'Neal one once, a couple of years ago. I remember being pleasantly surprised, because it beat my other ...

Doesn't seem like a veggie place,but Gumbo Shop in the quarter has a vegetarian special every day which is usually pretty tasty, as well as a couple of other veggie options (gumbo, sandwiches). It would be an especially good choice if you were with a group who wanted to eat more Louisiana-type food...

I'm one of those who thinks it is way too much trouble to eat out. Same with Mother's Day. I'll celebrate our anniversary and my birthday by eating out, and avoid the crowds on the Hallmark holidays....

[quote] I thought the Lousiana-Mexican fusion dishes were very good, I was particularly impressed with the nuevo crab enchiladas. [/quote]
I had those when we went. Fantastic. Probably the best seafood-based Mexican dish I have had in BR.
Got a thumbs-up from my crew. It is a bit pricey, s...

BK infuriates me every time I go. SUCH crappy service.
I am not a big burger eater. And really, there's no way BK food could be enough better to be worth the crap you put up with there. It's still all fast food.
My son used to always want BK. Last time I went there, they screwed up his ord...

Totally agree with Pujo Street and Mama Rosa's. I grew up in LC but pretty much had not been back for years and years until recently. Now I am there 2-3 times a year. But hardly any place I remember going back in the day is still there.
We went to Pujo Street on a friend's recommendation last...

[quote]Actually, Red Robin didn't even make it beyond a year. It was replaced by that horrible Copeland's idea of wrapping all your food together in a tortilla. What was the name of that place? It didn't make it either.[/quote]
Wrap and Roll?
They had stuff like red beans and rice in a torti...

I would love a Dairy Queen. I agree that Central doesn't really count (because it's way out of MY way and it's all about me). Plus the one in Central is part of a gas station. Not the same.
Even so, I usually go get a Blizzard whenever I happen to be in that area. Maybe I'm better off without...

That parmesan chicken is really good. A friend of mine had the pot roast sandwich and said it was good.
Service has not been great in my experience, but I've had worse. The beer is good, and my kids like their sodas--they make their own root beer, cream soda, and cherry soda (I think). Kids al...

My son (now a teenager) was a very picky child. He never would have eaten chow mein at 3. But he probably would have eaten steamed rice--the blander the better as far as he was concerned. Probably would have been all over those crispy fried noodles too.
I am with those who that bringing in food ...
