Who Dat? A gentleman named Jacques (or, rather, Jack) and his alligator cheesecake is who dat is. We’re guessing this establishment takes its name from the oft-mentioned song “Iko Iko” telling the story of a parade collision between two tribes of Mardi Gras Indians (we’re not being prejudiced, look it up, Einstein). This is more than enough reason to salute Jack alone, but his food is what wins our heart.
As you eat deep fried roast beef po’ boys, fried chicken, and enough seafood to make Bubba Gump cry for his mama, perhaps you may want to consider which of these artists paid tribute to the song after which this restaurant takes its name. Our favorite is Cowboy Mouth, by The Grateful Dead, The Nevile Brothers (we had to throw them in there, they’re from this dang town), and Cyndi Lauper all do it justice too. Wait, wtf? Cyndi Lauper? Yes. Cyndi. After all, po’ boys just wanna have fun.
There isn’t much room, but your crew should have a bet to see who can drink more bloody marys before dinner (they’re incredible). The two losers should be forced to eat their meal in the pickup truck. Trust us, they will be sorry they lost. The rest of your party will laugh hysterically. Guaranteed.
