Lola's - A Louisiana Kitchen

The name says it all, and it is terrific. Can recommend the broiled oysters, the "crawpuppies", catfish and grits, crawfish (of course), and Abita beer to boot. On Charleston Boulevard, just east of I-15, close by the Premium Outlets.

  1. I've been there 3-4 times, have tried the various po' boys and the jambalaya - all have been tasty.

    As someone who works downtown, it is great to have a place like Lola's open for lunch.

    1. Any update regarding Lola's?

      Is it as good as it was on 2010?

      How is the gumbo?

      Thanks for any feedback.

      1. I had the bronzed catfish and grits last year and they were excellent. My wife and I will be dining there next week so I provide an update.

        BTW Lola is opening a 2nd, larger restaurant in the near future (April?) so she must be doing something right.

          Thanks for the reply, westie!

          I look forward to your update next week also.

        2. We dined there last night and each of us had the bronzed catfish - outstanding - if you like a spice in your life. The catfish was very tender and the gouda grits brought tears to my eyes. We also shared an order of low country greens which were just okay. The table next to us were enjoying their meal as well with orders of gumbo, oysters on 1/2 shell, jambalaya, and the bronzed catfish. The restaurant on a Tuesday night was close to capacity though there were tables outside that were vacant because of the cold weather. The noise level inside was very high so I can imagine it would be annoying on the weekend. Laissez les bons temps rouler

            Has anyone tried Lola's gumbo (I assume it's on the menu)?
