Metairie >R & O Restaurant
I love New Orleans. I also watch Mystery Diners. When I first saw the food I wanted to eat there, but after finding out that the disrespectful, rude, and food spoiling DeeDee got her job back, I changed my mind. I want to know that the food I eat doesn't have body fluid on it and the rest of the family should've stood up to that 'child' and let her go. I will never eat there and I will never recommend it to any one.
I eat at most mystery diner establishments. I will never even give this place a shot. That fat, disgusting Dee Dee should be fired and the health department should close this place down.
Go Dee Dee!The show Mystery Diners showed who is the real boss of the restaurant. Fat Girls Rule!
Fire Dee Dee, no one will ever eat there again as long as she's there. I have already called my family and warned them about her. I'll be surprised if you last 6 months
I would never eat at this place! If the show Mystery Diners is real...., This dump should be shut down. How many time have customers eaten contaminated food here when there are no cameras? What other body parts do they rub your food on before they serve it to you? Why let a bully come back to work for you? This place for sure will have other issues not shown on the Mystery Diners show...... the owner doesn't care or it wouldn't be this way.
BEWARE!! Not what it used to be.... Doesn't even deserve 1 star.. This used to be a HUGE family fav so we decided to eat there recently. HUGE MISTAKE. Server was extremely rude and unfriendly. We ordered a stuffed artichoke and it came to the table smashed with a BROWN soggy lemon on top and the inside was COLD...as in almost frozen cold. We were so shocked because we have never had such an awful experience there. After pulling 3 leaves out of middle, we asked the server to please take it back (it was inedible) and we would like to order some entrees. The "manager" came out smelling of alcohol and obviously intoxicated. His exact words... "I will not remove this from your bill. If I go to an establishment and do not like the food I just pay for it anyways & today you will do the same. If you don't like that (as he is standing over me with his finger in my face) then you can leave and never come back here." Then he went on to inform us (as my 3 year old is upset from him yelling at us) that he is the owners son and he is control if we refused to pay for the artichoke he would call 911 and let them deal with us!! The whole situation was so ridiculous and my daughter was so scared that we paid for all our drinks and the food we didn't even get to eat and just got out of there for our own safety. Also, note that the couple seated directly behind us said he had done the same thing to them in the past. I would NEVER return. I will NEVER recommend anyone to bring a child to eat there (unless you want them to leave scared). Worst experience of our lives by far! Shame on you R&O's! We have spent Alot of $ in that establishment over the years despite the unfriendly servers... no more.
What Happened?. My brother and I have been going to this place for years. It was always good. Their pizza sauce had a hint of pickle in it that made it unique and tasty. We went there tonight, and were given appalling food. The large pizza was the size of a medium for the same price. The server responded about it saying,"I don't know anything about that". The flavor of the pizza was awful too. I might as well have gone to Dominoes or Papa Johns. The food was small and nasty. I assume it has new owners, because stuff like this doesn't just happen for no reason. I am never going back again. What a waste of a good restaurant. Terrible, terrible, terrible.
Be prepared to make your own cocktail sauce!. Went there for lunch this past Friday for the first time since before Katrina. I took some friends from out of town and I was embarrassed by the overall experience. The food was ok . . except for the eggplant parmesan I had from the lunch menu (don't get it!). But I was absolutely appalled at what happened when one of my friends asked for seafood cocktail sauce for his fried oysters. The waitperson brought out a small container of horseradish and said "You'll have to add your own ketchup." I have never ever been to a restaurant where a patron had to sit there and make their own condiments! For the prices these people charge for their dishes, they could well afford to provide the cocktail sauce pre-made! I also found the $2.50 subsitution fee a little steep when substituting potato salad for french fries!
Go for the Gumbo!. While their pizza is certainly some of the best I've had ever (certainly the best in NO), their Gumbo is INSANE. With a blue crab at the bottom of every bowl, and the chunks of chicken and sausage, you can't go wrong. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
Fantastic po-boys, mountains of fried seafood and no-frills Italian fare in loud, kid-friendly atmosphere. Pizzas sold in medium size only..
Shellacked plywood tables, grade-school holiday decorations and "Hey, sugar" service add up to an informal, family-friendly standby for an overwhelmingly local crowd. The main dining room runs toward the noisy, especially on weekend nights, when multifamily groups gather for birthday celebrations or "parents' night out."
Despite its name, R&O's is a perfect budget-seafood spot with plenty of house favorites. Start off with an order of french fries doused in rich, chunky beef gravy or a tart, salty Italian salad. Whether deep-fried or boiled, the kitchen takes its seafood seriously, with plates that border on gargantuan. Crispy, overstuffed po-boys rank among the best in town, whether soaked in gravy (roast beef), red sauce (chicken Parmesan) or slathered with mayo, lettuce and tomato ("dressed" fried shrimp or oyster). Italian offerings are also consistently strong, with sweetish pasta plates and hearty, bready pizzas offering even more choices.
