"Dreaming of a down-home meal just like Mama used to make? Sometimes good old-fashioned comfort food is the only thing that will do and, fortunately, there are plenty of places across the States that dish up exactly that."
So which Louisiana restaurant was named the best "mom and pop" eatery in the state?
Located in New Orleans, Mother's Restaurant has been serving up delicious food cafeteria-style since it first opened its doors in the '30s. Mother's Restaurant is located at 401 Poydras Street in New Orleans.
Here's what LoveFood had to say:
"In the Big Easy, you'll find everything from fancy French-inspired boltholes to unassuming spots doling out gumbo and jambalaya. Mother's Restaurant falls into the second camp. It started life in the 1930s, serving po'boys to local workers. Now the menu has been expanded but the cozy, downhome vibe remains the same. Choose between grits with crawfish étouffée (a staple Louisiana stew), fried seafood combos, or a roster of hearty breakfasts."
