“Delicious, but just not very authentic”
Review of J. Gumbo's

J. Gumbo's
Ranked #25 of 245 Restaurants in Terre Haute
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 August 2016

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.
They have sizable portions, they're a little pricey, but it's overall tasty and the staff is helpful and friendly.
Most notably, though, is the owner. His charisma practically runs the place all on its own!

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 you buy, a great deal.

This restaurant offers a very generic and bland version of Cajun food. There are almost no choices for vegetarians. But the bar looks awesome. It's a fun place to hang out, but don't expect authentic Louisiana cuisine

Great food and fair priced meet the owner and he has plans to grow the menu with fresh seafood. The also sell half orders on most items on the menu which if your doing lunch I would of just got a half order. I like spice so I had the hottest they had. No wait staff just a line to order your food.
