In 1976, Augle Lopez finally realized his dream of opening a restaurant that ushered some of the French Quarter's charm and hospitality into neighboring Harahan. His mission is evident in the menu, which blends approachable, homestyle Italian fare with fresh seafood and creole standards. Chefs ladle house-made marinara over delicate angel-hair pasta, dress fresh seafood with classic lafitte and meunière sauces, and fry catfish and shrimp to a crisp, golden brown. Smilie's also hosts large-scale events, such as weddings, banquets, and support-group meetings for oxygen addicts, within their large banquet hall adorned with flowers and white tablecloths.
Though Wow Cafe & Wingery has now found a foothold in more than 60 locations throughout the U.S., the chain still offers the same tasty soul food and wings as it did when it was founded by a trio of Louisianan brothers in 2001. The friendly sports pub still broadcasts the day’s games on various televisions, allowing guests to follow multiple sports or Jenga tournaments as they lick one of 17 delectable sauces from their fingers. In addition to these finger-food staples, guests can devour fajitas, burgers resting between slices of texas toast, and classic New Orleans dishes such as gumbo, catfish, and red beans. Spice-covered tongues cool off with signature drinks such as an italian mango bellini or Louisiana's Abita beer.
