Connie's Restaurant Ponchatoula Reviews
Aug 12, 2007
If you are looking for a great place to eat that embodies all that Louisiana has to offer Connie's Restarant is it.
A little over 20 years has turned Connie's from 7 table patio diner to a place of about 20 tables family size. Personality seeps from every corner and on every table. Beautiful Lighthouses, Wall paintings, crayfish and gators your companions to entertain your senses (of humor maybe)and make you feel like you are part of the family.
We were greeted with kindness and quickly are served our drinks. The menu had choices to please every taste including vegetarian. When Connie found out how long we had been traveling she gave us coffee and chocolate cake at no cost plus a blessing for safe travels. It was worth the little bit of the wait for the food. The portions were huge, the food was so savory. Everything and I mean everything was hand made. Even the gator was drooling for his share of the meal.
This place is well worth getting off of the beaten path to go to. I am going to stop there from now on whenever I am in the area. Good food , good people. What more can you ask for?
From New Orleans take the Causeway and then 22 West. From Batton Rouge take 12 East to 55 South and then 22 East. If you are comeing from Gulf Port take 10 West to 12 West then 55 South and 22 East. From the North, well just come down 55 and take 22 east.
