Their oyster po'boys are the most similar to New Orleans that I've found. The owner (?) or manager is so friendly. He makes sure to introduce himself and makes sure your experience is a good one. Great service. They let you sample the main

My buddy and I were going to go to Tito's Tacos (5 stars), but decided to try this place. It was overpriced. The "jumbalaya" was spanish rice with a small piece of sausage in it. It was not good. The salad was tiny and just shredded

Pros: It was clean. Corn bread was good - could of bought a box for 80 cents from Ralphs.

Cons: Not good food. Not cajun food. Nice try. Price was expensive.

I love Uncle Darrow's. They were rated by Zagat, Park Labrea news, Los Angles Times, L.A. Times Magazine, Los Angels Business Journal, and L.A. Weekly, just to name a few. First of all let me start out by saying I never had Catfish In my life. I love Their catfish sandwich It was only $8.99 and WOW is it good. After woods I found out that the catfish were farm raised. What a Deal. you'll be hooked. Go for the PO'Boys menu. I think their Cornbread is out of this world. I love cornbread and always try it at different places. But Uncle Darrow;s corn bread should be shipped world wide. (It's better than chocolate.) You will become a cornbread addict. You would be surprised how many FAMOUS PEOPLE eat hear. (a little Secret.) They are located on the corner of washington and Lincoln. Plenty of parking and it felt like home.

It's never a good sign when a restaurant is empty but we wanted cajun food real bad and so we decided to try Uncle Darrows only to be very disappointed! First of all there is not much on their Menu and everything they have to offer is

Pros: Parking, Clean, Plenty Of Room, Prompt Service

Cons: Terrible Food, Very Small Portions of Food, Taste Well below average

Great food. Great location. Great place. A perfect choice for something new and different... I recommend the "Zeek Po' Boy". Perfectly prepared seafood in a convenient, cajun package. Delicious.

After a bad experince with Cajun food in Bakersfield, I figured this was going to be dodgy but I was pleasently disappointed. The food was GREAAT! I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast & went to school in Louisiana so I know my Cajun food.

The food at this place is superb. I was pregnant and had a taste for some good red beans and rice and a po-boy shrimp sandwich. That was the best sanwich and boy those beans were out of site. The atmosphere was kind and the staff was very attentive and the prices are out of this world.

Love the atmosphere here. I feel like I'm back in the South. Hush puppies and catfish. . . what more can I say? Except that the prices are reasonable and the service is very good.

This place is AMAZING the food is sooo good and the hush puppies are addicting. I usually get the catfish po'boy with spicy cajun pups on the side and I am in heaven. I have never been to New Orleans but I feel like I am there when I go to Uncle Darrow's. Norwood, the owner is always there to greet you with a smile. Customer service is OUTSTANDING and the people are so friendly. I LOVE this place! Big parking lot behind the building with plenty of room. Prices are definitely reasonable. Fresh food all the time and now they even serve Breakfast on the weekends and the grits are to die for. Mmmmm Good!

Just like N'awlins this place has everything. Po'Boys with catfish or shrimp grilled or fried - jumbalaya, rice & beans the food here rocks!!! Over the counter service - food prepared fast and fresh. On the weekends they serve breakfast and the grits are fantastic. Pancakes were great too and they have beignets. The hot sauce is delicious and be sure to ask for gator sweat and cajun pups - two house specialties.

I love hush puppies and theirs were some of the best I have had in a long time. Plus, they greet all newcomers with samples of their most popular dishes to help you make your decision. Will definitely go back.

I really wanted to go back to Uncle Darrow's and did when I was near the ocean with my husband. On the way we passed many great restaurants we love but I had my mind set on eating there. We ordered the Gumbo for $12.05 and the Gumbo Ya

Pros: They have an A letter grade and a free parking lot.

Cons: We felt sick and disappointed after eating there.

.

First of all let me say that the staff was SUPER NICE and let us taste test a few things before ordering - lucky for us because that saved us from ordering the bad tasting jambalya. We ended up ordering the voodoo meal and I have to say

Pros: Nice staff, gumbo and dessert

By the weekend we are basically sick and tired of being in the kitchen. Once a month we head over to Uncle Darrow's with the kids and its basically like we are right at home. Great selection and service as well as fully flavorful

I go to Uncle Darrows twice a year and I am never disappointed by either the very good people who work there or the very good food they cook. I am always surprised by the friendliness of the staff. I highly recommend giving them a try -

Pros: Great Gumbo and Terrific Service

Cons: it's not cheap

I was turned on to Uncle Darrows years ago when they were basically a take-out located in an old taco stand in mid-LA on Venice. A few years ago they opened a new location in the Marina area. The very first time I went to Uncle Darrows I

Pros: Real Louisiana home style cooking, friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Cons: None.

.

The food at this place ROCKS!! Looks a little like a take-out place at first (you can, but why?), but the food and the service is fantastic. Takes a little time for some stuff because they cook a lot to order, but its worth the wait.

I haven't had "real" cajun food in LA, but this is just as good as all the others. Everything seems to have a slight twist to it; not in a bad way, just different. It is the absolute best service I've had at any restaurant in the city

Pros: Service, Good food

Cons: Not "real" cajun, No crawfish

Interesting that the review before mine was so negative. I'm not from New Orleans but my family's from there and I used to spend every summer there growing up. Having said that, I can say that it's not exactly what one would get in New

I am originally from New orleans, and was craving some creole cooking. Yesterday, I decided to try Uncle Darrow's in the marina to see what all the hype was about this place. I was dining with a friend, so we ordered the voo doo supper:

While I was a little concerned when I walked in (looked like a take-out joint and I was in the mood for sit-down service), my fears were quickly put to rest. This was quite possibly the best service I have received in any restaurant in

Another Creole/soul restaurant that's overpriced. (It's hard to justify $12 for a catfish dinner when it's regularly found fresh at the market for less than $5.) You can eat there, but it's set us as more of a take-out-style place without
