Dunbar's - Any good? Where is it?
I took everyone's suggestions that have been posted on this board and ate at Jacques Imo's last night and thorougly enjoyed it. Since I was down here on business I was by myself and discovered if you are a single you can beat the wait, just by snagging a seat at the bar, they'll serve you there. Even if you can't, just order up some appetizers while you are waiting and it adds to the fun. I loved the idea of a table in the bed of a pickup truck out front by the way.
While sitting at the bar I overheard a comment about a place called Dunbars that it was supposed to be very good food and cheap. Can anybody elaborate on this place?
Dunbar's is excellent, albeit off the beaten path. It's at 4927 Freret St. between Napoleon & Jefferson Ave. Great fried chicken, red beans & rice and other soul food items. It's inexpensive and the staff are very friendly.
Here's a link with more information:
I haven't been to Dunbar's myself, but my little brother practically lived there in high school. It's a little place off Freret on Robert?, a couple blocks from Jefferson, as I recall. All you can eat fried chicken and red beans and rice for around $5-6. The only rule: no napping.
Supposed to be great, although I haven't allowed myself to go -- I'd leave 20 pounds heavier.
