Anyone been here?

It sounds like it could be promising.

    I went to Sal's last night and they were out of Gumbo but they let me taste the roux and it was really good.

    (Quick note: If you are ever offered Gumbo, ask the person how they make their roux. If they don't know what a roux is, run away.)

    Since they were out of Gumbo, I got the Oyster Po Boy and my daughter got the fried shrimp. We spent time talking to Sal and Mark and found we had a lot in common. When I got home and opened my bag, I was amazed at the amount of food we got! There were so many oysters, I couldn't even see my bread. And they were delicious! Fried right with some serious spice. I was even impressed with the fries. It was great to have some well seasoned fries.

    I took Mrs. Mista back there today for Gumbo. We both thought the Gumbo was excellent! Lots of shrimp, crab, sausage and chicken. And not little bits. There were chunks!

    I highly recommend Sal's Gumbo Shack for anyone looking for some good Louisiana cooking.

    P.S. I can't wait to go back for Soul Food Sunday!

      This place is finally open. It opened a few days ago and I'm already hearing great things about this place. I plan to check it out this weekend.
