Fodor's Expert Review Acme Oyster House

$ French Quarter Seafood Fodor's Choice

A rough-edge classic in every way, this no-frills eatery at the entrance to the French Quarter is a prime source for briny, chilled 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. Crowds lighten in the late afternoon, making Acme a choice respite for a midafternoon snack of a dozen on the half shell washed down with an Abita beer.
