Fodor's Review

A rough-edge classic in every way, this no-nonsense eatery at the entrance to the French Quarter is a prime source for cool and salty raw Gulf oysters; legendary shrimp, oyster, and roast-beef po'boys; and tender, expertly seasoned red beans and rice. Even locals can't resist, although most opt for the less crowded, if less charming, suburban branches (there's one in Metairie). Expect lengthy lines here in the French Quarter, often a half-block long—trust us, though, it's worth it. Crowds lighten in the late afternoon, making Acme a perfect respite for a mid-afternoon snack of a dozen on the half shell washed down with an Abita beer.
