Gumbo Shop information
For an unabashed tourist trap, Gumbo Shop (a) does pretty good gumbo, and (b) gets a fair amount of respect from locals, although we’ve never seen a local inside here (unless they’re taking orders). The decor is actually quite lovely, all frescoed out with scenes of old New Orleans. We reckon the Shop, like most heavy-turnover food factories (for that is what this is), suffers from inconsistency in the food quality, though it’s never below mediocre.
