Finally got around to visiting to decide if we would order for a family reunion. We did and the extended family loves us more. We now have to order gumbo and more for Thanksgiving in Georgia. Win win.

Wasn't staying at Holiday Inn and was recommended by the staff. Had to wait a few minutes as dinning area is smaller but well worth the wait. Had the boudin balls and then also the jambalaya. Enjoyed the food very much!

Ate here a few times, very consistent. The last time we ate there a week ago, it was overwhelmed with 2 baseball teams from out of town. The guys were stormed with people and mixed up some orders. Chef Ron himself came out and settled the problem nicely, calmly, and quickly! Despite the huge crowd that just went through the... More

Get the feeling it's a tourist trap, but not a bad one. Had some gumbo, it was fine. Service was quick and friendly. Owner was present and delightful. Would go back.

Small restaurant run by Chef Ron, one of the top chefs in Louisiana. There are many variations of Gumbo in the state and you will find the best tasting here. The drum fish topped with crawfish was cooked to perfection. Everything I tasted was outstanding. Will be back to try more.

Gumbo & crab cakes were awesome! A bit tricky to find but Waze never let's us down. We arrived for an early dinner around 4:30 and found a seat easily. Tables were filling up when we left an hour later. Other diners were raving about shrimp scampi. Good end to NOLA day trip.

My son took me here last week as it said it was the best in the area. He is correct. My gumbo with shrimp on the top was the best I have ever eaten. Very small place and not fancy but everything was amazing including the service.

Recently moved to Metairie and I've tried quite a few spots for local fare. Ron's is buy far the best - rich and smooth éttoufée without being overwhelming, lightly fried and tender shrimp on the po-boy, and the mumbo gumbo is just perfectly seasoned. Absolutely recommend for any visitor to the area - and for any local who hasn't made... More
