What would I recommend? Everything. Okay one ting, the shrimp po boy had jumbo shrimp. Naw, don't do that. Need little brown shrimps. Likely could not get them. Its a great place. More...

Tiny inside, but huge flavor in the food. I go to New Orleans frequently and the gumbo is better here than places I've been to I'm N.O. You must try to the Boudin Balls. Fluffy and covered in honey soy sauce..Absolutely delicious. More...

The cat fish po’boy was awesome! Also the crawfish Mac and cheese was good! The gumbo was ok. Too much celery in it but I highly recommend this place. Great friendly customer service.

Gumbo Bros has by far the best gumbo and PoBoys I've had since last time I was in Louisiana a year ago! I love the crisp breading on the catfish, and their chicken/andouille sausage gumbo is superb! Their food is routinely shipped in from various Louisiana cities and ports, and the employees are LA natives/transplants. Well worth the visit, and will do so again and again! More...

Been wanting to try some Gumbo a while now and just happen to pass by this spot. And the name said it all, looked up the reviews and decided to try it. Definitely not disappointed. Gumbo was great. That roast beef poboy was juicy and the pecan pie just made my lunch. Will come again. More...

My husband will never ever want my gumbo again! This gumbo is over the top delish! As are the friend pickles and potato salad! Oh my gosh! Be sure and top it off with a yummy beignet! We traveled here from Texas so we wanted to taste it all, and it didn't disappoint! It was worth the subway ride from Manhattan. "Yes Ma'am. Yes Sir. No exceptions!" More...

I was very skeptical since I'm from New Orleans. It was delicious. I had a Shrimp PoBoy. So glad they use Leidenheimer French bread. Also had the chicken and sausage gumbo, crawfish Mac and Boudin balls. Loved everything! More...

I actually walked past this place, and my inner foodie yelled, "Go back bioch!" So glad my inner self got that Ike Turner control over me! The food was craaaazy good! The crawfish macaroni and cheese is the best thing I've ever put in my mouth, in my life! Everybody who comes here must try it! And the gumbo, well all i got to say is Dell Smart got some serio-competition! Absolutely fantastic! More...

Best cajun food in NYC! The gumbo is amazing and every po boy I've tried, I've loved.


Connie Von Tobel

The real deal! Haven't had gumbo this good since I lived in Louisiana! I've worked my way through most of the menu now and can honestly say I can't pick a favorite so I just have to put everything on a rotating schedule! I've been in three times in two weeks and am treated like an old friend every time I've been in! Highly recommend. More...

I just love the Surf and Turf Po boy � I' ve had food that was really really good. And, other times the food was not as good. Consistency should be the key across the board. More...

Wow, really impressed with this place! Really cute decor and authentic Louisiana touches on the wall. I tried the seafood gumbo (shrimp was amazing!), chicken and sausage gumbo (excellent!), and the catfish po'boy. Made me miss my Louisiana family. I love the Atlantic tiles at the front door -- just like in the Quarter! Can't wait for them to get their liquor license.. More...

To be in New York to eat gumbo (being that I'm from Texas) was something so amazing. My gumbo was really good and hot just the way I like it w/ a kick of spice to it!

Small little gem. Loved the food, service and ambiance. The catfish po' boy was amazing, tasty, light! chicken and sausage gumbo hit the spot on a cold Sunday afternooon. It was perfect and worth the trip from the city to BK. Go, eat, be happy! More...

Exactly what we were looking for on a cold day in the city. The Gumbo Bros stayed true to their Louisiana roots with a gumbo recipe to rival the best in the state! From the bright welcoming storefront, to the warm and aromatic interior laced with southern hospitality, The Gumbo Bros will leave you feeling satisfied and looking forward to your next visit.

With a full and warm belly after eating here I have to say all of the food at the Gumbo Bros is incredibly good but my favorite was the chicken and sausage gumbo. Plus! You get service with a smile. Can't beat that and so glad to have this gem in Brooklyn. Eat here as soon as possible. You won't regret it. More...

Eating this gumbo is akin to being touched by God. I dream about this gumbo each night I lay my head to rest. It's like a New Orleans second line parading and trumpeting across your tastebuds. A must when you're within a 50 mile radius. More...

I went to the holiday fair at Columbus Circle yesterday to grab something for dinner, that wasn't from one of my usual haunts. I made my way to The Gumbo Bros booth because they had the biggest portions and I was kind of hungry. More...

this gumbo is SO damn good that I'm writing this review before my bowl is even finished... the power of the gumbo compels! In all honesty, Nanny's cajun is soothing my soul. Get yourself down to Mad Sq Eats and try it out! More...
