Though a suburb of New Orleans, this suburban city packs a bunch of big city taste! No matter whether you want traditional Southern-style or Creole food or any one of a number of international cuisines, Kenner has something for everybody!
NolaNica is an excellent example of the blending of New Orleans with communities from around the world. In this case, Nicaraguan cuisine is mixed with some classic Southern dishes to bring out some exciting and unique flavors! Dishes like the Nolanica Burger or Chancho Frito sandwich combine Latin American as well as southern flavors for amazing dishes! But that’s not all. This Nicaraguan restaurant also offers traditional dishes like Cerdo Asada and Sal Picon. People wanting fresh, home-cooked food at great prices and even better service should try it out!
A Kenner staple for decades, this family-owned and operated pizzeria offers nothing but fresh and in-house made pizzas, wings, and sub sandwiches. Some of their pizzas, like their famous Gumbo and Redfish pizza, have won national awards and was recognized by Forbes as one of the most unique pizzas in the country. They also specialize in making sure your crust is crunchy by baking it with the par method meaning the dough is baked first then the ingredients are added to ensure a delicious, baked taste. No mushy or doughy bread here!
No list of New Orleans area restaurants would be complete without a Southern one! This mom and pop establishment has been whipping up traditional seafood, po'boy sandwiches, and southern comfort food for years. They aim to provide all of the seafood Louisiana has to offer whether it is shrimp, crawfish, crabs, or oysters. All of their food is cooked to order showing that they aim to provide an individualized experience for everyone. They also have daily specials to give customers deals on classic dishes like Breaded Pork Chops or Southern Fried Chicken as well.
A restaurant that focuses on providing a new spin on a classic dish, no stop to the New Orleans area would be complete without stopping here! Owner Chef Ron, a nationally recognized chef, offers his award-winning gumbos along with a variety of other classic southern foods. His gumbos are unique because there are so-called "stuffed" gumbos because of the amount of food he packs into them such as his famous Mumbo Gumbo that combines chicken, crab, crawfish, shrimp, and sausage. You can rest assured that whenever you buy gumbo here you will not get just a bunch of broth! Additionally, Chef Ron personally supervises all new shipments of food to his restaurant ensuring everything on your plate is only of the highest quality.
Another example of the rich amount of cultures Kenner and the surrounding area represent, Paco’s Tacos prides itself on being a no-frills street taco restaurant. Customers should keep in mind that the main difference between street tacos and ones Americans might be used to is that they are served exactly how they are prepared in the home country with soft shell tortillas only, piled high with fillings, and provided with dipping sauces. They provide a huge amount of food at great prices, but they do not compromise on quality!
