Stopped going to the old location due to poor quality. Recently found myself across the street from new place reminiscing on last year’s trip pigging out in New Orleans, so I went in for some jambalaya. While the taste wasn’t too bad, it had a pasty, been-sitting-around-too-long texture. Waiters seemed ambivalent about customer service. Will try again but only recommendation for now is caveat emptor.

9/29/13 For Brunch, ordered the Crabcake/Poached Eggs/Hollandaise ($16). Crabcake was mushy, eggs overcooked, and hash browns looked like yesterday's breakfast. Scallop PoBoy ($9) had about 3 -4 breaded scallops on (not very fresh) French bread. Crawfish Bisque (small - $7) was okay. Food quality definitely not worth $33. Wouldn't even give this place one star. Service was friendly.

Good Cajun food and a good value. This place is a favorite for locals and I've been coming here for years at old location. One of the few good places for brunch in Bethesda. Couldn't disagree more with the review above and I must not be alone which is probably the reason it has survived for so many years. Atmosphere is not special but if you like Cajun food this is your spot.

Service was beyond poor. Food tasted like it was cooked in a hospital bland and flavorless. the jumbalaya tasted like it was cooked a week ago and reheated every day. Dont make my mistake go some where else. Maybe someone will buy it and turn it into a place where people can enjoy food. We can all wish.

Although under new ownership and name, the revived Louisiana Express is still the great quality food it used to be. The Oysterloaf Po'Boy is a stand-out. Sadly, the new location lacks the regional ambiance of a Louisiana diner, and the service left something to be desired.
