The Zagat Review
“Excellent gumbo and po’ boys” , “fresh oysters” and other “great Cajun favorites” bring out Louisiana lovers to this “laid-back” cafe chainlet; “kitschy” digs feature tin walls, memorabilia and artwork, and the atmosphere is so lively that “sometimes it feels more like a bar than a restaurant” , especially when fans gather to “catch a Saints game” ; P.S. most locations have late-night hours.

Have always loved this place. We go here for lunch often especially during crawfish season. I don’t drink the drinks I have an herbal tea I bring in and have NEVER had a problem in the past bringing my tea into BB’s. However today a waiter by the name of Jarvis changed that, he totally ruined all of our lunch by first off wanting me to put it in another glass to which i refused. Things quickly went downhill and when he said for me to clam down and I’m talking at him. Which I had not even raised my voice I got quite for fear of what I would have said and I did not want to stoop to that level. I asked to speak to manager which he ignored. He took all our drinks away then bring them back. I’m not sure what was going on with that. But I must say I’ve never had a bad experience here usually the waiters & waitresses are super friendly not this guy he was rude as could be. Note to managers “Please train your new waiters to know how to talk to a customer. This really changed my and my co-workers view on BB’s and that’s too bad.

Great place to get some food from down on the Bayou. Went there for National gumbo day and was definitely not disappointed. The service can be hit-or-miss, but the food is always spot-on. Don't be fooled by the size of the parking lot because there is always plenty of room and it's much bigger than you expect. Definitely recommend trying to grilled oysters also and don't forget about Hush Puppies. Man they make some great hush puppies!

Had a great time and the food was wonderful. For as busy as they were, they were still able to get the food out quick and the wait wasn't long at all. This was my first time going there and I will be back. Thank you for the great service
