- I had the crab cake benedict and can tell you it was one of the best and most unique versions i have ever had of this dish. My husband went with their Big Breakfast, and when they say big they mean it. The pancakes are so big they almost didn't fit on the plate. – Erica King, Urbanspoon
- As a cajun living in NOLA they have some of the best etouffee I have tried in a restaurant. My personnel [sic] favorite ..loaded french fries! – luv to eat, Urbanspoon
- Came here and had the Meat Lover's Omelet (ham, sausage, bacon and cheese of your choice) and didn't think about eating again that day! It comes with either toast or a biscuit and hash browns or grits. YUM! – laura W., Yelp
