Simple, authentic, good food
Stop by Mother's and learn some authentic slang like "creolized" or "ferdi special." Just don't be caught holding up the line. Serving, in a single year, no less than 175,000 pounds of ham and roast beef, Momma knows what she is doing.

      Can get much better at a gas station or corner store for 1/2 the price and wait! Long lines don't equal good food, just tourist not knowing any better.

      Excellent food
      My partner and I had never been to New Orleans, we wanted authentic creole food and we were told Mothers. We enjoyed so much we went back 3 times in 5 days try the sample platter and the seafood gumbo....

      Another tradition while in NOLA
      Nothing fancy here - no table service. Get in line, walk up and order. Stick to the menu (no special orders here). Red Beans/Rice, Gumbo, Bread Pudding. YUMMY. When are you going back? - take me with you.

      Service, not really...
      But the food is great. It is quite a hole in the wall, but one that should be experienced when you're in New Orleans. Great southern food at a great price, but order it right or you might be yelled at! Do not miss Mother's when in New Orleans!
