Fodor's Review

While it's not exactly "down by the bayou," this order-at-the-counter outdoor café does serve a mean gumbo rich in shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage. It's also the place for New Orleans–style po'boy and muffaletta sandwiches, jambalaya, and beignets (the Big Easy's take on doughnuts).

Canter's Review

Canter's is a true LA experience. Many a deal has been brokered in this busy, well-organized eating space, and star sightings are common. It has the best Matzo Ball Soup (add carrots), hands down. Portions are huge, including the pickles, and you might want to share that pastrami sandwich. Baked goods in the deli are a Jewish food lover's delicacy, and parking is free with validation.

Boubala Bisque

I've gone to Canters since I was able to walk-maybe longer. The ample size of the corned beef sandwiches hasn't changed and the chopped liver sandwich is so smooth and creamy that I salivate just remembering today's lunch. Try the motza ball soup---the only thing better if you're sick is a visit to a jewelers.

Skip It! Skip It! Skip It!

This is supposedly an L.A. institution, but I have yet to meet an Angeleno who enjoys Canter's. It is dirty and tacky, the food is bland at best (the bakery is the pits!), and, if acting surly was an Olympic sport, every waitress would be a medalist! Admire the neon marquee, and then keep on driving.
