We enjoy eating in the many awesome restaurants in New Orleans, but few compare with Acme. It may be a tourist site, with a line to be seated, but the food is authentic, great, and worth the wait.

Just as we did at Felix, we sat up at the bar at Acme. So, our opinions are comparisons:

1. Oyster bar staff is friendlier at Felix
2. Preferred the charbroiled flavors of Felix although the Oysters themselves appeared plump and juicer at Acme
3. Fried crawfish tails appeared to lack some seasoning.

Overall, we would prefer Felix over acme.

We visit New Orleans once a year and have to eat at Acme at least once. It is very popular and we had a 30 minute wait, but don’t panic when you see the line as it moves fast. Our favorite dish is chargrilled oysters. They are delicious.

If you like oysters this is the best place to go next to Felix's, however you can get in lot quick. The food is just as good the people are just as friendly and the oysters are just as good.

Been looking forward to a Fried Shrimp Po Boy for weeks and Acme did not disappoint. Line looked longer than it was. Don’t be discouraged. Bloody Mary’s were great as well. Can’t wait to go back next trip!
