I am a gastronomic snob and a chef, so I am not picky when it comes to food , but I am definitely judgmental. I have eaten at the best restaurants all over the US, so believe me when I say that NoNos is FANTASTIC!!! It starts with soft, sweet, warm cornbread that you get when you sit down. My boyfriend ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork Poor Boy with Cole Slaw(of which he is a connoisseur), and I ordered the 1/2 order of St. Andrew's Ribs. We both actually licked our fingers and our plates clean. Both dishes were made with the restaurants own home made BBQ sauce. The Pulled Pork had a taste bud tantalizing sprinkling of Tarragon with the perfect amount of BBQ sauce and the rib meat, smothered in BBQ sauce, was so tender it slipped right of the bone, and the coleslaw had a delightful hint of horseraddish. Then we, as always, ordered dessert. We had the Pecan and Sweet Potato Pie with Bourbon Sauce, and all that was heard in the SECONDS that it took us to eat the HUGE piece was, "mmm! MMM!" The crust was just sweet enough but not too sweet. The Sweet Potatoes were cooked perfectly, soft but not mushy. Then the Pecan Pie layer was crunchy and soft, and we happily ate bite after bite sopping up the Bourbon sauce that was like caramel with the smokey sweet kick of Bourbon in the background. The service was superb. Our server was honest, recommending that we not order the chicken because it was a little dry that night, and knowledgeable of the ingredients and cooking processes of what was being served. She was friendly, helpful, and, most importantly, didn't leave our food dying in the window. The New Orleans-esque atmosphere was lovely as well. The walls are adorned in the way that proud grandparents decorate their walls, with pictures of their staff and various famous food chefs as well as stars and directors who had visited the restaurant. All that and the prices are fair, not cheap but not outrageous.
Pros: price, portion, flavor, service
Cons: no bar, pricey wine by the glass
