    Treasure Chest Casino

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Apr 30, 2011

    There are a number of places to gable in this country (last count, I had experienced just over 200 of them.) One that is a little hard to recommend is this casino. From the start, when I realized there was no convenient self parking, I knew I was in trouble. Inside, the casino floor is very cramped and a little on the dingy side. It's part of the Boyd chain of casinos, which includes some of the best in the Vegas area. Very puzzling. I didn't take long to decide to skip investigating the food options on site - just a quick run through was enough to get me to move on.

    The Swamp Platter

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Apr 30, 2011

    When investigating possible lunches after landing at Louis Armstrong Airport - almost universally the most highly regarded dining spot in Kenner is this little place. The reviews all warn to get there early because it fills up so fast. I landed around 10:45, and got here just after 11:00 for lunch and was one of only three people there. By the time I left, it was hopping, with most tables packed. The menu is extensive - almost and form of fried or boiled seafood you can think of. One of the specials that day was the "swamp platter" - fried frogs legs, fried gator, gator sausage, turtle soup, fried crawfish, and crawfish etouffee. Having not tried a lot of these, I went for it. A lot of the food was unique, but the two items I'm used to (the crawfish dishes) were both spectacular. Using these as a frame of reference, I know now why there are so many raves about this place!

    Service was very friendly, and it has a locals feel to it - you could tell there were several regulars there.

    Parking can be brutal - there are small lots in front of and on the side of the building - there is also a larger parking area behind the building, so don't forget to check there. If you're in the area and like seafood, this is definitely the place to go.

    The Come Back Inn is a little family restaurant with good, reasonably-priced food and a very relaxed atmosphere. Nothing about this place is particularly fancy. It's okay looking. They've taken some time to decorate, but someone determined to turn up his nose at it would find something to criticize. Everyone else would see it as a nice little place. They have a fairly large smoking section, so escaping the smoke might be bad at really crowded times. Orders are placed and food is picked up at the counter. It's all do-it-yourself serving. The restaurant employees bus the tables.

    The whole point of this place is that they serve good food at a good price. If you want to fill yourself with fairly healthy food in a relaxed atmosphere, this is a good place to go. Much of the menu is seafood, but they also have fried chicken, pizzas, spaghetti and a variety of sandwiches and po boys. Some of the food has the local "Cajun" flavor, so a traveler could feel that he/she was enjoying the local cuisine. Other food is more typically American and might be better for those not used to the tastes of southern Louisiana.

    The price of most meals will be right around $10 with a drink.

    Favorite Dish: I had the tuna steak dinner, and I liked it very much. The tuna was seasoned nicely. I'm not a big fan of hot, spicy foods, and it was just right for me. The meal came with a baked potato and cooked vegetables. Both of these were good. The salad was small, but the big potato and generous veggies made the meal plenty filling. Overall, I think it was also a very healthy meal.

    The lady I was with lives in the area and eats there often. She had the shrimp dinner, and she said that the shrimp is always delicious.
