I had lunch on a Saturday at Lady Nawlins and the food was good.
Today, I came back for more.
I did feel like an unwanted invader in an insiders-only club when I first walked in and sat down. But, I eventually got served and everything got better.
I had the house-smoked hot-sausage po-boy for $9. It was very good.
I was impressed that they smoke their own stuff. I don’t really know why that impresses me.
One of the owners was at the bar. He was friendly and enthusiastic about the food. I liked that too.
On my second trip, I had red beans and rice and corn bread. Â The red beans and rice were great – the corn bread was good and it was probably great when it was first made. The beans and rice alone are worth the trip. Â You can get a side-order size for $4.50 and it’s a decent portion.
I don’t care whether the food is”authentically cajun” (whatever that means). I enjoyed the meal and the space is very cool.
There are also several decently priced lunch specials during the week. I recommend going then, otherwise it’s a little more expensive than my usual preferences.
Overall, I gave it 22 out 26 points.
Nine bucks for a sausage po-boy? They’d get run out of NOLA charging that. Perhaps that’s why they are here.
I’ve been to Lady Nawlins once for drinks and appetizers with a friend who is from Louisiana and she didn’t think the food was totally authentic but I agree with you, authentic or not I still liked it! We sat at the bar and the bartender was really friendly and I liked the atmosphere.
“I was impressed that they smoke their own stuff. I donâ€™t really know why that impresses me.”
If they’re making the sausage and smoking it in a wood smoker… that would impress me.
