We always make a point of eating here whenever we're in New Orleans. The prices can't be beat for Cajun food. The oysters and crawfish are a good deal. Fried food is the other big draw on the menu. The poboys are a big and yummy. My only complaint is the gumbo -- it tastes kinda "swampy" to me. If fried food is not your thing (that's me), the sampler plate is a good pick.

We found ourselves seated at a big table in the back of the restaurant. Our tablemates (yes, they do believe in sharing tables here) were four young ladies and later a family of four. But by sharing tables you get to see what your tablemates order and whether you should have ordered what they ordered.
Since the Acme is known for oysters, I ordered the oyster platter for $10.99, and let me assure you, there were more than a dozen on my plate. The platters come with one side, but I asked for an extra side of cole slaw because I had been told it was very good. And it was very good, very sweet, just the way I like it.
My wife let me sample her red beans and rice with smoked sausage ($6.49), and they were very good.
One dish that I saw a lady across from me order was the New Orleans Medley, for $7.49. It consisted of a sampling of gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans and rice. I think I know what my next meal will be at the Acme Oyster Bar, but then you can't beat their oysters.
