A nice little restaurant in a historic building. There is seating in a cute little courtyard in the back. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. They are famous for their muffulettas.

Went here at the suggestion of a local. Food was fabulous. Prices were cheap!! My husband and I ate a fantastic meal for under $25. He loved his po-boy and I couldn’t eat my jambalaya fast enough. Yum. Yum. A new NOLA fave for us.

A stop at the beautiful historic Napoleon’s for our first delicious muffuletta and a side of jambalaya was a great decision. Staff was friendly and polite, food was good and the beer was cold!

Came here for dinner after it was recommended. The chicken sandwich was fresh made and filling and the jambalaya was delicious. The place has a very nice atmosphere right in the middle of the French quarter. Building is beautifully decorated with a patio area.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
