French Quarter Bistro Royersford - Review

Last night my hubby & I tried the French Quarter Bistro in Royersford, which, true to the name, specializes in cajun/ creole/ new Olreans food.

Everything we ate was GREAT! We started w/ the Cajun Popcorn (deep fried crawfish) w/ a spicy creole mustardy sauce -- fantastic (and I normally stay away from fried food, but this was so yummy!). I had the Etouffe, which was the Wednesday night special -- very very good, but I liked what my husband had even better. He had chicken Nola, which was boneless chicken, shrimp, and crawfish, in a creamy spicy (yet sweet) sauce, served over rice. Soooooooooo Goooooood! So many calories, but so good! Oh, and the bread they served -- fantastic. Sort of like a cornmeal bread but a little lighter than that -- and the top was crusted with a little bit of spice. And I had a Hurricane from the bar, even though it wasn't on the menu. And the prices were EXTREMELY reasonable... so reasonable that my hubby & I thought they should raise some of the prices. Everything I listed came to $54 with tip (app, 2 entrees, and drink from the bar).

The location is a little strange -- there's like nothing else going on on the street where this place is -- this appeared to be the only business that was open (at least at night). The decor was basic. They did have New Orleans music playing, though, which was a nice touch. It was really dead in there on a Wed night -- there was only one other couple eating dinner, besides us. I hope they can stay in business. Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food! It's a hole-in-the-wall, off-the-beaten-path, gem!

      Basically take the Royersford exit off of 422 and head towards the Kohl's/Giant shopping center. Drive for about 5 minutes and it will be on your RHS. Slow down when you see Lebow Furniture on your LHS. If you cross the train tracks you went too far.

        I've always found the food there to be very good and the value is excellent. I haven't been in a while so I'm happy to hear a good review.

        That said it's definitely a hole in the wall type of joint.
