Fast food type of place. Order at the counter and the food is there, scoop and serve like you find in airports and food courts. Taste is good, some options have good heat but overall not great. Bar is not always open and check the hours, they close early.

This place is a hidden gem. The atmosphere is really cool with a bar hidden in the back. Food is ordered cafeteria style with it being prepared as you stand and wait at the counter. You are given the opportunity to sample the different gumbo's so you can find the one you like best. Once you get your food, you pay and have a seat to eat. The food here is very good.

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 friends who frequent New Orleans and they've mentioned that this place isn't "true" authentic food, but we find it consistent and delicious every time we go.

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.
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!
