Do they have a lot of spicy food there? I like most food just not really spicy hot.

Real Cajun food is not spicy hot but it is flavorful and well seasoned.

Oh that sounds good. I don't know that much about Cajun food. Does anyone know do they keep a clean place?

Yes they do and it's delicious! You can sample things they have anything from spicy to not spicy at all.

It's good stuff and clean. Not spicy bourbon chicken/bumble bee stew up to the drunken/voodoo chicken. Good nachos and stuff too.
good place

I really tried to like this place, I really did. The guy who runs it really seems like a great guy, it's just nothing special. The Bourbon Chicken is okay. I've eaten there when the rice wasn't done, I've picked bay leaves out of my Gumbo or Jambalaya (don't remember which it was). This may be Cajun thing but it's not what I want to do when I sit down & eat. Also the prices have gone up since I started going there.

Overall it's quick but for the most part you're just getting a bowl of white rice with a topping.

So....why did you keep going back?

Oh yeah... The price went from $6.00 to $6.50 on average per choice. Why keep going there if it was so bad. And for the record, the bay leaf is a "Cajun thing".

It's called "rice and gravy". Rice is served with almost every Cajun meal including eggs at breakfast.
Some lump Creole cooking into the Cajun term but they differ somewhat.

Wow...guess you "food critics" don't take kindly to someone offering up an opinion. Ain't life great! If you could read you'd see where I said that it was "just nothing special", I never said that it was bad.

I've been there & had it with leaves & without leaves. Also if you could read you'd have read that I stated that "I" didn't want to sit there & pull leaves out of my food.

Seems that a few people on here appear to be way, WAY to touchy about anyone who says that J Gumbo's is "okay". It looks like this thread was started by someone fishing & not by someone who wanted to hear opinions from people who have been there.

Guess that spamming an eating place in here is some really cheap advertising, huh?

I relate red beans & rice to Cajun food more then I'd relate rice & gravy to it.{Disclaimer...that's my opinion (for those fishing).}

"Momma" was correct. Cajuns call it rice and gravy. It applies to all sauces served over rice.Étouffée, gumbo, chicken stew..........
