Rocky & Carlo's Restaurant Review: Located a half-hour's drive from New Orleans, Rocky & Carlo's serves immense portions with a bare minimum of fuss or fancy from a row of cafeteria-style steam tables. Despite the super casual arrangement, prepare to wait in line for a seat. Mainstays include mac ‘n’ cheese, fried shrimp and oyster plates, jambalaya, spaghetti with meatballs, braccioloni (stuffed and rolled veal breast), onion rings, potato salad and po' boys. Desserts are sweet and heavy --- just right. Try the bananas Foster spumoni cake. Some domestic and imported beers and wine are available. And the ambience? Well, sometimes no ambience is an atmosphere all its own.
