Unlike cinematic love scenes, food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of burgers, steaks, seafood, and more at O'Henry's. This Groupon is good at the Carrollton Avenue and Kenner locations.
Carnivorous delicacies and Cajun delights dot the O’Henry’s broad menu, as they have since 1982 when the restaurant first opened. After perusing the various burgers, sandwiches, and fresh salads, meat mavens can hang a fang on a medley of protein-packed pleasures such as the Steakburger ($8.99), which can be dressed in up to 20 toppings such as grilled onions, blue-cheese crumbles, or horseradish aioli. A coupling of Cajun staples creates the Catfish Lafitte, which pairs a fried fillet beneath a blanket of sautéed crawfish and O'Henry's creamy Monica sauce ($14.59). In addition to free WiFi and food service until midnight, diners are also treated to complimentary peanuts whose shells patrons are free to discard on the ground or take home to plant in the ground and wait for a peanut bush to sprout.
- I never know what to get. The Chicken Tchoupitoulas is the best chicken dish at any price, Crawfish Monica (the real stuff), Ribs are the best & Burgers (hickory cheddar my favorite). I want it all. – Yahoo! Local on 6/13/2007
- O'Henry's on Veterans Blvd. is a favorite of my family. They have something for everyone. – Chinese Bandits, Urbanspoon
O'Henrys has serving guests since its founding in 1982. Owner Rhonda Conley, with more than 20 years at O'Henry's under her belt, works to keep the tradition of the restaurant alive at both locations. Waiters serve plates of freshly ground filet mignon burgers, hearty steaks, and signature Monica cream sauce dishes. Outside, an outdoor balcony scattered with tabletops wraps around the restaurant. The eatery boasts private dining rooms for parties of up to 25 people. It also treats guests to a free new york strip steak if they can prove it's their birthday with a valid ID or by showing video tapes of them not celebrating their birthday the previous 364 days.
