Rita Mae's was recommended by a local. Very skeptical, when we pulled up. Old house in need of much attention, limited parking, neighborhood in question(wouldn't want to try and find it in the dark).Took a chance anyway, inside wasn't any better, limited space, very dated...More

Some of the best home cooked meals, and don't forget to save room for deserts. Nice hometown feeling.

Happened upon this place a few years ago while in the area. Now we make a point of stopping in when in Morgan City. Food is worth the stop.

The best home style cooking in the Morgan city area. The gumbo is amazing! Every time we're in this area, we go eat there. When I here someone is traveling to this area, I tell them about Rita Mae's.

I may be too late to answer this, but I am pretty sure I saw someone come in and get a bag to go. I'd call and ask. They're so friendly, they will help you.

Description
Rita Mae's Kitchen in Morgan City, LA is a quaint but amazing dining experience worth trying. Their famous chicken stew is unparalleled anywhere in anywhere in the South. Its inexpensive, incredibly food with a very loyal clientele. This may be one of Morgan City's best kept secrets. I'm back home in Washington State right now wishing I was there getting ready to tear into a plate of their food.
