Ralph & Kacoos: Don't miss the Hush-puppies!!

This became our favorite place to eat for lunch & dinner. Their Hush-puppies are fabulous! Actually, everything we tried was fabulous, especially when "blackened" like alligator, halibut etc... The entire staff were so friendly & lively. Definately made you feel comfortable & welcomed. Make sure to purchase some of their seasonings & sauces especially their cookbook.

Ralph and Kacoos: A better option for local fare

Ralph and Kacoos is another New Orleans institution which caters to tourists and locals alike. You may pay a little more than it's downgraded counterparts (like Cafe Maspero at the end of the block) but the servings are more substantial and the quality of the food is exponentially better. Simple food done right. Sit at the bar where they shuck oysters ($5.99/half dozen) in front of you while you enjoy any of the local beers they have on draught. The seafood gumbo ($6.99 a bowl) is delectable and the red beans is equally mouthwatering. It's relaxed and clean.

Favorite Dish Try the fried seafood platter. It's simple food done well and the portion is quite large. ($19.99)
