This is a restaurant located in a ok area of New Orleans, parking is limited. Food is homemade style and very delicious, prices a little higher than expected however the tasty food made up for it. Wait staff very friendly. Will recommend!

We were driving by and saw line of people waiting to get in. Decided to stop and glad we did. It was Sunday breakfast and the place was packed. Inside was a flurry of activity, the wait staff racing around and the owner keeping all on their toes. The wait staff and the chefs (who cook right next to the... More

With arms wide open, we were welcomed with good vibrations dressed with fields of sunday aromatic goodness! This all you can eat brunch filled every piece of me. Mind, body & soul. Not only was I celebrating my b-day but our waiter and four other people that came through were too! Our waitress was hilarious and sweet as ever, dressed... More

My husband and I first heard about Dizzy's on the food network channel and it immediately became one of my places to visit on my bucket list. We went to Vegas on Jan 13th and ended up flying out of New Orleans.The first thing we did was drove to Dizzy's and had an amazing lunch. We read all the reviews... More

We grabbed a patio seat and they had gumbo while I had cheese grits. Everything was delicious and fresh and hot! I also ordered biscuits that came all buttered up and ready for me to munch. Very laid back, great food.

I stayed in Treme with some friends for New Year's, and with this place a few blocks away from our rental we stopped in for breakfast one day. As we walked up to the restaurant, the friendliest woman ever opened the door for us and told us she had a table waiting just for us. Most of the patrons were... More

We were on our way to go grab some breakfast on Bourbon Street when our Air Bnb host was outside. She said if we want some good food thats close by then we should go to Lil Dizzy's, which was really close to us. Its a small cafe, but very busy. They have a buffet, but we just ordered off... More

As Lil Dizzy's get more and more popular with tourists it's getting harder for local fans to get a table. We always are challenged to find little known restaurants with great food. Lil Dizzy's is one of those places. They always make you feel at home and the food is absolutely delicious from fried chicken to gumbo to mac and... More

My husband and I and a friend went for lunch on a Friday at around 11:45 and were seated within 5 minutes. The place was packed and lots of smiles! Wait staff was friendly and very helpful. We chose the buffet because we had heard the gumbo was really good! I had a small bowl of gumbo, fried chicken (I... More

Staying in Treme

Neighbourhood Profile
Treme
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
