Dirty Dirty Bowl

Honestly I chose a random dish, all their dishes are delicious as always. But their dirty bowl is fantastic. I would prefer, if I won to donate that money to either the restaurant itself or to BLM. thanks, Kelly.

ACME Chargrilled Oysters

Now you know, raw oysters are delicious but these chargrilled oysters are the bee's knees! Babe, the taste reminded me so much of home... what an incredible flavor. The chef did a beautiful job of preserving the soft texture of the meat while simultaneously creating a crispy topping. Although a small amount of cheese used was used, the sharpness of the parmesan really came through and paired perfectly with the garlic, lemon, and butter. The next time we visit LP, I'm just going order a dozen and call it a night.

Down the Bayou

This place is amaze-balls!!!!! Everything I have had at Louisiana Purchase (many cocktails, much food) has been glorious. This is one of those dining gems that must be tried and frequented! The bar, the service, the atmosphere, the food and libations will transport you to that magical, mystical restaurant heaven (that I personally cherish): a moment and space where you can create memories and enjoy life. Seriously. See you there!!!!! 😍

Ooey Gooey 'Better than Sex' Cake

I also had one of their specials: sweet praline pecan fried chicken over some loaded potatoes. MAAAAAAAN!!! Can y'all add this to the regular menu please?!It was so good that I stop to look at it. That ooey gooey was moist and paired great with the ice cream. Everything was seasoned perfect. The host was very friendly, patient, and helpful. I recommend everyone to this place and you will not be disappointed with ANYTHING on this menu. Y'all got a loyal customer here.

My daughter whisked me by here on a whim saying she just had to try it. Next thing I know I'm sipping a great cocktail called the Grenade which I highly recommend cuz it gets the job done buzz-wise. I had the catfish with the lemon pepper crust and the Mac n cheese with red beans and I must say the fish was absolutely delicious and I savored every bite of it.

Bourbon Milk Punch

I had the Praline Old Fashioned (which was so good I struggled not to down it too quickly) the Bourbon Milk Punch the perfect boozy dessert), and the special of the day, a Seafood Boil with the added crayfish. Everything was incredible.

Also had the Santa Monica Ribeye and the Alligator Cheesecake. All were phenomenal dishes that make you wish you had a bigger stomach. The Dragos was creamy and flavorful, packed with generous chunks of sweet lobster served on top of a whole halved lobster- it's fearless decadence. The Santa Monica ribeye, a sizable juicy tender ribeye topped with the most amazing crawfish cream sauce. This is the dish all surf and turf should aspire to be. The execution of a perfectly grilled steak topped with a rich crawfish cajun cream sauce. I've dreamt of this sauce, it's simply unmatched. The alligator cheesecake- I had never considered the possibility of a savory cheesecake, but I am a 100% convert. My goodness. Eating it is an experience in of itself, you bite through this wonderfully tender and improbably light and smooth herbed cheesecake, you find yourself passing through savory morsels of alligator sausage, and end with the best damned crisp savory crust I have ever known. Louisiana purchase is a bountiful, glorious American treasure.

Lemon Pepper Catfish

Omg delicious! Perfectly crispy and flavorful breading and juicy hot catfish. Such a large portion, I had to take it to go. Definitely a bang for your buck. It came with two sides of your choice and I chose the Mac n cheese and red beans— so good!

Alligator Andouille Cheesecake

HO-LY MO-LY! This savory little piece of heaven is one of the most delicious things i think I've ever eaten. I totally understand now why it's sold out time and time again when we visit the restaurant. We got lucky tonight when we ordered to go and boy was it worth the wait. Hands down this restaurant is our favorite in all of San Diego.

Alligator Andouille Cheesecake

So I'm from the east coast...I decided to come and check out Louisiana Purchase For the first time today due to the specials being run....We ended up ordering 4 orders of the gumbo which came with two free orders of chicken wings, Mac and cheese and potato salad....omg alllll of that was ahhhhmazinggggg....we also ordered (for lunch for work tomorrow) shrimp & grits, fried catfish with collards and Mac and cheese, and an order of alligator adouille cheesecake (which was to die for 🤤🤤🤤🤤) I've never had anything like it. I believe that's what it was called. I will definitely be going back again!!! No question! The staff was friendly and the wait was about 45 min but it was well worth it. Y'all have a customer for life. Lol! Well done 🤤🤤🤤🤤

Amazing!!! Being raised by St. Louis &Tennessee mom/grand southern cooking is an art. Not just slop something together slap on a plate and eat. Preparation/presentation is key. The plate was appetizing/sensual. Had to approach with grace, kind hands & respect. 😉 Love it!!!

Big Easy Mac

Their Mac is to die for. If deliciously could rhyme with heavenly it would in this case. This place is bomb. I also want to add if I win for my donation to go either towards the restaurant or towards BLM

This dish was tasty with de-shelled, decent sized shrimps and bacon! It comes in a cute semi-fancy soup/gumbo bowl. And it was only $15; nice amount of food for the price!

Shrimp + Grits

Wow wow wow! I ordered your shrimp and grits and grilled oysters (to-go) yesterday and both were amazing! I love the slight kick in spice the shrimp sauce had to offer and it was perfectly balanced with the decadent bed of grits ! My bf ate the oysters before I could get to one but he had a similar review! We can't wait to go back when the entire menu is available. I want to try the grilled oysters and cauliflower :) the drinks shown on yelp look amazing too I didn't get a chance to peak inside but the ambiance looked great from the outside. I'll for sure be back with friends for a girls night out. My only recommendation would be placing the to-go orders in a paper bag vs a plastic bag. The food was so delicious it deserved something a little more special than plastic.

My girlfriend and I drove by Louisiana Purchase back in December and had to check it out. There was an LSU game on, so the atmosphere was electric! Can't beat perfectly fried chicken, sazeracs, and college football. Looking forward to when the dining room is reopened after shelter in place, but I will have to get some take out in the meantime! Thank you for sharing that good ol' Louisiana soul food with us!

Red Beans

Ordered a chicken bucket for takeout, and it was a treat. Service was perfect, and the food was delivered to the car hot and wrapped well. Despite the foil on the multiple piece chicken order, the smell that filled the car was intoxicating. The chicken was cooked perfectly, salty and seasoned well, the skin on the thighs ate like cracklins, and the flavor was out of this world. This is not your average fried chicken, this is made with love. Like cast iron skillet, taking your time love. Same with the biscuits, mac & cheese, AND red beans and rice. LP certainly cooks with love and seasons well. That flavor of bay leaves in the red beans and rice is something that has to be coaxed out, and they did it. Portions are generous, the food is a fantastic value, and this place sets the bar high. Even the leftovers were outrageously delicious, and that is a hard thing for restaurants to pull off. I can not wait to go back and try more, and I'd suggest you run, don't walk, to Louisiana Purchase. Show up hungry.
