Visited New Orleans for about 1 week. Went here twice. Food is southern, inexpensive and tasty. Pros: Great Customer Service and Food Cons: can get crowded


ugh, we rushed to make it to mother's by their 10pm closing and frankly I was not impressed. The $12.50 po'boy tasted like frozen fried shrimp on a bun. The other choices looked...

Order the Shrimp Po-Boy! 9/12/2006

Mother's is an institution in New Orleans, and we enjoyed the great food during our September 2006 visit to the Big Easy. The Shrimp Po-Boy sandwich was awesome! Also, we happened to run into Chris Isaak who was quietly enjoying anonimity in the corner before we discreetly took his picture. Thanks for the great food, Mother's! more

The best for cozy food! 3/28/2006

We have been to New orleans twice now (pre-hurricane) and this has always been on of our favorite places to eat. I was very happy to hear that it has now reopened to the public--everyone who visits the city should try it!! We particularly love the po' boy with debris (basically shredded pot roast) and everything on it. I also love the greens and the BREAD PUDDING!! Delicious. You will be stuffed. Be prepared for long lines if you go during busy times, but its worth the endless wait :) more

Great Cajun Food! 8/17/2005

I highly recommend Mother's. You'll have to stand in line but it's worth the wait for all of the best of all of the traditional Cajun dishes. The prices are also very reasonable. It's a short walk from the French Quarter. If you want seconds, your waitress can help you out so that you don't have to go stand in line again. more
