We pulled off at this exit looking for a different restaurant. Lucky for us, we found the Fat Spoon instead. We started off with their gumbo, which was AMAZING! We grew up on the Gulf Coast where there is no shortage of good gumbo cooks. I would put the Fat Spoon's gumbo up against any of 'em. There are a... More

I have passed The Fat Spoon many times but never tried it out until a friend invited me there for lunch two days ago. Oh.my.gosh! What have I been missing? A LOT! Don't let this simple looking building keep you from getting your next meal here. I'm going back today! The Cuban sandwich is beyond wonderful...just how a Cuban is... More

Ordered the chicken salad on croissant and it was so very good. It came with a salad so I ordered the dressing my waitress suggested, the blackberry vinegrette. It was "died and gone to heaven" good. Service was fast and friendly. Am looking forward to returning soon!

Staff is friendly and service was great, including a table visit from the owner checking on... More

We found this little restaurant by just passing by and decided to try it for breakfast. Fast and friendly service. Our breakfast came quickly and everything was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be dining here again.

On our trek back to Tx I craved someone else's gourmet cooking other than mine. This stop was such a pleasant surprise! I indulged in the Egg Sardou=Benedict. Eggs benedict Muffin with a layer of artichoke, poached eggs smothered in Tony Chacheras creamed spinach topped with home made Hollandaise Sauce! Mouth watering! Beignet Sticks were just a bonus!

The breakfast food and service was very good but it took a long time to get our food. The sever kept us informed that our food was coming but too slow. We will try again.

Went there on a Sunday for breakfast and it was great, I had the crawfish ettouffe topped La spoon omelet with grits, grilled biscuit and a side of bacon. The wife had cheese grits, sausage, biscuit with a side of white gravy which she had been wanting for awhile and said it hit the spot. I go here quite often... More
