What You'll Get
Ever since New Orleans found the wormhole in the depths of its grandmother’s armoire, it’s been hopping by neighboring cities in hopes of turning the towns Cajun. Take a bite out of its base camp with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic New Orleans eating at Joey K’s Restaurant, which has been featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and is located in the heart of the eclectic Magazine Street shopping area.
Joey K’s sports a full bar, outdoor dining area, relaxed atmosphere, and a menu comprised of home-cooked local dishes. Start with onion rings ($6.50) and a fried oyster plate ($16.95) before flipping the switch on your stomach tank and trying one of the specialties, such as the trout Tchoupitoulas, which is lightly floured, pan-fried, and topped with shrimp and crab meat and served with mixed vegetables, new potatoes, and a side salad ($15.95), or the Southern-classic chicken fried steak, served with fries or mashed potatoes and green beans ($8.95). For a quicker eat at lunch or whilst running from a man wearing a cheetah costume, two-hand a sandwich such as the fried catfish po’ boy ($8) or roast beef debris ($7.50). Signature drinks, such as a frosty, 18-ounce schooner of draft beer, wash down deliciousness so diners can hit the shops on a sated stomach.
Joey K’s was named by readers of the Gambit as having the Best Lunch Specials of 2009 and 2010, as well as voted Best Red Beans & Rice Place this year. Joey K’s is Zagat rated, getting a 19 rating for food. Yelpers and TripAdvisors give it a 3.5-star average.
Further, Joey K’s Restaurant was featured in an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network:
