Pappadeaux Restaurant Review

: This is as close as you’ll get to the spirit of Mardi Gras---without actually going to N’Awlins that is. We especially like the crisp, greaseless fried chicken tenderloins and fried good-sized shrimp that come perched atop a mountain of perfectly cooked fries. New Orleans specialties abound on the menu, like fried frog legs and alligator, red beans and rice with andouille (sausage) and crawfish étouffée. We like to reel-in a bowl of seafood gumbo to start, and can never resist ordering the bread pudding with bourbon sauce for dessert. Note: Pappadeaux is one fun place to hold a party, and they do an especially good job at to geaux orders.
