Right away, we were offered samples by eager and friendly staff. We'd heard great things about the drunken chicken in online reviews, and that's what we all sampled. It did not disappoint, and we also got their "black and bleu" dip, which was excellent. I...More

Cute place! Service was great and friendly. You order at counter and they offer tasters of different dishes like you're at Baskin Robbins!! Got 1/2 Drunken Chicken 1/2 Gumbo. Lots of food! Come hungry! No beer on Sunday.

Very nice try at New Orleans style food! The service staff was outstanding in describing the dishes and letting us taste some of the sauces! The decor is very good. We will be back, but not on Sunday so we can have a Dixie beer!!

We've gone to J Gumbos several times, and I always enjoy going there. You can sit and eat, take it to go, or eat at the bar. If you haven't been they allow you to sample to find something that you like. I've heard from...More

Been here twice, both times it was good. Most of my family like their meals too. It was good that they had some outdoor seating on the sidewalk because we had our dog with us.

Pretty good.... In my opinion, J. Gumbo's is not truly authentic Cajun cuisine. It is, however, very tasty, especially their ratatouille. That is a SUPERB choice for vegetarians (like me!) or anyone wanting to have a large bowl of food, but also following a diet....More

Love it, has a bar inside restaurant makes you feel like you are in Louisiana. Fast, friendly service and smiles to go around. Makes you want to come back again and again. From hot and spicy to mild, with a sample of your choice before...More
