Mena's Palace Restaurant Review

: Mena’s is that little neighborhood joint that you find in Anytown, USA, except here the calling card is the down-home Louisiana cooking. Unless wallboard and neutral white paint have suddenly become fashionable, the single dining room, flanked by a long, TV-equipped bar, is similarly staid in its aspect. None of this diminishes the value of Mena's as a prime source of decent eats at low prices. Red beans and rice, shrimp stew and chicken-fried steak are as frequent at Mena’s as at any restaurant of its size in town. Gumbo, fried chicken, hamburger steak and stuffed crab are among the headliners. Almost everything comes with french fries and a salad. Table service is swift and appropriately chummy. Desserts are pretty basic, but tasty: pecan pie, apple pie and bread pudding with rum sauce. The wine list is fairly straightforward as well, while the popular quaff is the Bloody Mary.
