Gumbo Shop

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by C_Wheel on January 3, 2003

Gumbo is another of New Orleans's traditional foods--it's like a spicy stew with rice. The Gumbo Shop, which is actually a restaurant, seemed an obvious place to try it.

The service was prompt--possibly a little too much so, as you got the feeling they were trying to whisk as many customers through the doors as possible. I had the chicken gumbo which was tasty but a little watery. I think the Gumbo Shop is possibly oriented towards pulling tourists in, but the food was still tasty and not too expensive.
