This place is a hole in the wall, but its for mature groups, has cheap beer, is in a great night spot and feels like you're dining in someone's house. Try the fries for vegetarian...

Famous but Overrated 1/7/2010

This used to be one of my favorite neighborhood places, but after Katrina, its gone downhill at a rapid pace. The gumbo often tastes like it was burned and generally, the quality of the food is not anywhere near what it used to be, sadly. The beer and boiled crawfish still a safe bet, but thats it. For sure, not worth the wait. more

excellent 11/9/2006

This place is a hole in the wall, but its for mature groups, has cheap beer, is in a great night spot and feels like you're dining in someone's house. Try the fries for vegetarians, they have great po-boys and the gator soup, my meat eating friends seem to love. more

A great place for lunch 1/26/2006

Decided to try this place after reading good reviews online, and it was a hit! We had po' boys and they were absolutely delicious, they use very good oil to deep fry it all. The service was incredibly friendly and warm. And the prices were cheaper than a lot of other places in town that aren't even as good, so you're getting quite a deal! It is a little bit of a hole in the wall place, but the food and friendly atmosphere make up for it plenty! Pros: Inexpensive, Easy parking more

Now This Is Local 5/19/2005

Now this place is off the tourist beaten path, but if you can find it, it's worth it. This is very typical Lousiana food the way the local types eat it. The neighborhood atmosphere here is priceless. more

Out Of The Way And Worth It 10/20/2003

Franky & Johnny's is out of the way, but worth it. The food is down home and not fancy. It's the kind of place where 2-4 beers goes perfect with lunch! The soft shell crab po'boy and a couple of Abita ambers really got the trip off to a great start. Pros: local atmosphere more

John Gresham's haunt 8/5/2003

I read about this place in Gresham's book and decided to try it while in N.O. It's a great hangout place for lunch and a beer! Lots of college (Tulane and Loyola)folks. Food was good and plentiful. Go for the local color though. more

It hit the spot! 12/17/2002

Had a bad craving for some good N'Awlins seafood & needed someplace close to work. F&J's hit the spot! Service was prompt, food was hot, and my appetite was thoroughly satisfied. I recommend it to all! Pros: taste, location, service more

try the cold crawfish 6/18/2002

Get there early and ask to try the crawfish cold. This gives the mudbugs a chance to marinate in the pepper sauces and other spices overnight. Onion rings also rock at this place. Pros: inexpensive, local more

Cajun sampler 6/10/2002

A favorite dinner and lunch spot for both tourists and locals, get there early or grab a pitcher and be patient because theres always a wait during tourist season. Great for local cuisine, try a stuffed artichoke or the red beans and rice and a salad on the side. If you like it spicy, get the Cajun House dressing. Amazing, but dont plan on kissing anyone for days. LOADED with garlic. Pros: casual, local grub more

Like meeting in grandma's comfy kitchen 5/19/2002

Franky & Johnny's is a charmingly atmospheric neighborhood joint, a magnet for genial, salt-of-the-earth blue-collar types and fans of crisp, batter-fried perfection and sizable seafood and New Orleans staples. The red-and-white-checkerboard tablecloths lend a down-home, Mom's kitchen touch to the relaxing surroundings, while the long wooden bar offers a wealth of chatty opportunities. Everything's good here; any of the sandwiches are excellent, and fare from pork chops to hamburger steak and fried chicken is satisfying and plentiful. A great place for lunch meetings or just hanging out. Pros: Great atmosphere, Good food Cons: Limited parking more

    This neighborhood bar and grill is nobody's idea of fine dining, but it's a trusty spot for the hungry uptown lunch crowd. Work your way past the leatherette bar and settle in...
