1.4 mi. from the Courthouse. In 1994, the Regan family brought New Orleans cuisine to downtown Douglasville and boy did they hit it big. This is one of the best (if not the best) spots in metro Atlanta for down home authentic cajun fare. Start off with what else but a cup of the rich and spicy roux-based gumbo (seafood or chicken and sausage) and then save some room as the offerings here are endless. Po boys are served on the traditional crusty French bread and feature everything from catfish, shrimp, oysters or grouper to the “sloppy” hot roast beef. Of course, there’s also the classic Muffuletta too served on the famous round Italian sesame loaf. Lunch entrees come in half or whole portions (which is a good thing) and the standouts are the Etouffee (crawfish or shrimp), Red Beans and Rice, Blackened Catfish and the Crawfish Bread which consists of lightly toasted French bread topped with a cheesy version of the Crawfish Etouffee. One of the most popular dishes is the French Quarter Shrimp–Gumbeaux’s take on the classic New Orleans barbecue shrimp dish. We’d be remiss in our duties if we failed to mention the selection of fried fish platters (featuring everything from gator to soft shell crab) served with remoulade sauce and outstanding hushpuppies. If you’re still hungry after all this, there are plenty of desserts including two bread pudding options. Most of the food is cooked to order so expect to be here for a bit taking in the French Quarter atmosphere complete with Mardi Gras momentos and artwork straight out of Jackson Square.
