Yelp on Catahoula

Local bloggers haven’t weighed in yet on this Cajun spot on Front Street but Yelp has.

A $5 Boilermaker of Jim Beam and the just-launched-in-PA Narragansett beer immediately won over Elite yelper Jon D. He does soak up some of that alcohol assault with “the hands-down best po-boys around, killer hush puppies and a menu I can’t wait to continue eating my way through.” [Yelp Philly]

“Sometimes a girl likes to be told what she likes,” confesses Elite Tina N. An “on-point” server who was quick to recommend duck jambalaya, crawfish bisque and banana fosters bread pudding had her “ready to call him daddy.” Ye-ow. [Yelp Philly]

“Butter is what binds this place together,” writes Emily M, who scored the first Yelp review of Catahoula on August 4. Barbecued shrimp, griddled cornbread and peach cobbler all drip with that sunny substance; hushpuppies studded with fresh corn get a dip in truffled tartar sauce for an equally heart-stopping riff on the Southern snack.

    dude. Catahoula is for real. The fried green tomatoes are nostalgic good.

    Catahoula is the real deal, it not only tastes like NOLA, it feels like NOLA. The cornmeal crusted oysters, the arrugula with shrimp salad, the jambalaya, the gumbo; all excellent. Can’t wait to try the po boys been there 5 times already, and we love out near Plymouth Mtg.

    Want them to succeed, but we are not looking forward to word getting around. Hopefully they can move to bigger digs if need be. Don’t want to see this place close EVER!
