I was so excited about this place but I need to caution you - they are not well set up to handle gluten free people during busy hours. The menu has NO mention of gluten free items, there is no separate gf menu, and the waitress misinformed me and I was poisoned. Only the seafood gumbo is gf, not ALL the gumbo. The jambalaya is, but most other items are deep fried or pasta or sandwiches. For a restaurant with a gigantic sign outside indicating they are gluten free friendly, they should at least mark the gf items on their menu. I was really upset with my experience. The chef was "sorry" but really folks, have a protocol!
First stop in New Orleans, Chef Ron's Gumbo Stop. I always enjoy his food. It's nice to have a Chef in a different state that knows all your allergies and make special dishes you. Best gluten free and shell fish free gumbo and étouffée.
Gumbo to die for. Jambalaya not far behind. And the friendly staff makes you so comfortable that you'll feel like these culinary works are appearing right in your living room. Oh, and Celiac-approved.
I was thrilled to find gluten free gumbo and jambalaya so that my kids could try regional cuisine. There were many gluten free options at a reasonable price. I should add that the gumbo is some of the best I have had gluten free or otherwise. Our non gluten free friends were happy with their meals as well. The portions are generous and did I mention delicious. Chef Ron took the time to talk to me and we discussed why he began serving the gluten free community. In short, because he recognized the need. Wow!!! Would definitely return.
Came here for a quick lunch after reading the reviews and it did not disappoint! I had a asalad and gumbo and it was wonderful! Chef Ron has it right!!
We flew into New Orleans and needed somewhere to eat so I fired up my Find me GF app and it led us to Chef Ron's! I can't say enough wonderful things about Chef Ron's! The food was amazing!! We had a group of four and we all had delicious dishes!! I had the GF sausage jambalaya with red beans. I am a super sensitive Celiac and I rarely go out to eat because of this. I Did NOT get sick after I ate and for me that is rare! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Chef Ron came out and talked with us, took pictures with me and got just excited as I did that I could eat his delicious food!! This place made this Celiac very happy!!!!
Excellent staff, very helpful; excellent food. It's a great local hole in the wall full of New Orleans flair. My first time eating gumbo, I had the seafood and hubby had the sausage and chicken. It was good but I don't think I'd have it again, or any gumbo. the jambalaya is a different story. Excellent.
Great gumbo, super nice folks!
Stumbled upon this gem on our last day in NOLA. And we were SO impressed by the friendliness of the wait staff. When I mentioned I have celiac they knew exactly what menu items were celiac friendly and without asking, the waiter even mentioned that there would be no chance of cross-contamination. Super impressed, very cheap and the best Cajun we've had our entire trip!!
Even though most of the reviews here are great 5 star reviews, that was not my experience at all. The chef did not come to our table, the wait staff was not friendly and did not seem to know anything about celiac or even gluten sensitivity. When I asked if they served any gluten free fried seafood, the girl looked at me like I was nuts and said no. After I mentioned these reviews and actually showed her pictures, she said oh they can only do gluten free fried foods sometimes, before the pan's get used. There were very few GF options. I had the gumbo, which was not that great. The food is over priced too. This place is a dive!! Will not return.
Best gumbo I've had GF or not! It's been tough coming to NOLA after having to go GF. Servers very knowledgable and friendly. Also had the jambalaya- wonderful too!
After reading other reviews I knew we had to stop here while in New Orleans and I am so glad we did! Sadly they were out of the gluten free gumbo so I got the crawfish étouffée which I had never had before it was a little on the spicy side for me but still very delicious. The red beans and rice were also very good. The waitress was friendly and was able to show me the gluten free options. Chef Ron was not working that night but it would have been great to interact with him like many others have. Overall great experience trying some good southern food.
The gumbo is fantastic and you can't even tell its gluten free! They use sausage, shrimp, crawfish, and rice in it. My boyfriend who doesn't have a gluten allergy and grew up in New Orleans said it was one of the best gumbos that he's tried! I highly recommend it! Note: the specialty food does take a while to be out because they will make it for you right away if they don't have it pre-made
We stopped based on all the amazing reviews and were disappointed to find that they had just sold out of the GF Gumbo. We started to leave, but the waiter stopped us and said that many other items were already GF. We went a little crazy with our order and got Red Beans & Rice, Jambalaya and Shrimp Creole (For three people) each also came with a side. It was a crazy amount of food, but so delicious. Very nice staff and great food.
Delicious food! Great gf accommodations and wonderful customer service. A must to go when visiting NOLA!
What a treat! so nice to have a real chef cook gluten free local soecialities. I will be back!
It was great to finally try some real Louisiana cuisine! The chef was able to make most of the rice dishes gluten free. I had a great red beans and rice dish and every one else loved their food, too. I'll definitely return.
AMAZING! Had the gluten free gumbo and the jambalaya. Being New Year's Eve, they were incredibly busy, yet the staff was attentive and knowledgeable! Worth the wait!
I've been to several places that had a GF menu but this place really does. The GF seafood gumbo was delicious. And they can make several other items on their menu GF, including crawfish étouffée. Had I known that the crawfish was going to taste that good I would've ordered. Enjoy GF friends!
I had a good meal including gluten free gumbo but I didn't have a stellar service experience. Server didn't seem particularly knowledgeable. I think if the chef happens to be there it's a different experience.
Delightfully surprised by the flexibility of the chef! So happy and NO reaction AT ALL!
chef Ron came out to ask if we liked the food... YES WE DID!! Jambalaya, gumbo and all the sides. VERY GOOD!! Love this place!
Amazing. This is the first place I was ever able to try gumbo. Absolutely delicious. Very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. Jambalaya is great too.
Everything we had was excellent and between the 4 of us we tried just about everything: gumbo, jambalaya, scampi, bronzed drum, red beans and rice, kids got blackened chicken and hamburger and finished off with flourless chocolate cake. I was ecstatic to have a gumbo I didn't have to cook myself and I would have enjoyed it more with hot sauce, but the kids couldn't keep their spoons out of the bowl! Staff is really nice and helpful in choosing gluten-free dinner options. Highly recommend this place!
I love this place! I placed an order to go and Chef Ron went out of his way to make what I wanted since I have celiac. This was my first time eating from there and it was absolutely delicious! He made me gluten free seafood gumbo which was the best I've ever had and gluten free fried shrimp which were great too! I can't wait to try other stuff from there-I'll definently be going back!
Amazing to finally eat nola classics!!!! Knowledgable staff. Did not get sick!!!!!!!
I'm so glad I found this place. The chef came out to speak with us and asked I was a celiac and said that pretty much anything can be made gluten free. The seafood gumbo was awesome. Plan on trying the fried catfish next time :) P.S. They have catering.
Even though they were out of the gluten-free gumbo, chef Ron made me a gluten-free fried catfish and shrimp platter. It was delicious, wait staff was awesome, lovely Nola atmosphere. I'll definitely be back!
Great staff! Chef Ron came out to offer me options since I'm allergic to gluten and also allergic to shellfish. He went out of his way to cook an étouffée with fish for me. They take good care of the gluten free customers. If you are visiting New Orleans, make sure you visit them. Food is delicious.
Great, GF, authentic New Orleans food experience! Chef Ron easily answered my concerns about cross contamination. His years of experience in hotel dining makes a big difference in his willingness to safely nourish his customers. As an award winning chef, the meal was everything we were hoping it would be an more. The GF gumbo had deep flavors and generous amounts of crawfish, crabmeat and shrimp. The GF fried catfish was perfect. My dining companion also dined GF and enjoyed a redfish, GF red beans & GF jambalaya. To say the least we left stuffed! I look forward to visiting again.
GREAT food in an awesome little hole in the wall. Staff and Chef Ron were very knowledgable about Celiacs, and Chef Ron later mentioned he could even make GF fried green tomatoes on our next visit by setting up a separate fryer. Our waiter recommended the Bayou Scampi and I could not have been happier with it. They also have plenty of non seafood options for people with seafood allergies (my husband). He had the Roast Beef poboy with potato salad and he was impressed with both, saying the potato salad was one of the best he's ever had. We will definitely be back.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The gumbo was delicious!
I had the jambalaya and the red beans and rice and they were absolutely delicious!! Chef Ron even brought out some fresh fruit for the children to nibble on. I'd give the food a 5 star. They were out of gumbo, and the choices for gluten free were a little limited, but they are really nice and aware of celiac disease and seemed careful and everything was delicious. It's a must try!
Chef Ron was awesome!!!! He catered specifically to my gluten free needs. He made an awesome gluten free gumbo and even made me some gluten free gator bites. It was all awesome! The best gumbo I have ever had even before I went gluten free.
They will specially make gluten free seafood gumbo and it was heavenly! Come here!
