storefrontI recently discovered one of the best-kept secrets on the corner of Canal and Rocheblave Streets—Legends Food & Spirits—and I just had to share my experience there with the Delgado community and beyond! Don’t buy fast food when you can have a hot, home-cooked meal for about the same cost. Legends has daily specials, burgers and fries, sandwiches, and sides with prices ranging between $5 – $10.

I was so excited when I recently had the Tuesday special—smothered okra with rice, corn, chicken wings, and a side salad—all for around $7! Not only was it an awesome deal, it was also DELICIOUS. I had the fried catfish on another lunch visit, and it was perfect!

Legends will deliver your meal if you live nearby, okraholds numerous events, has an active night life, and also rents the restaurant/bar/patio space for events such as parties, reunions, receptions, weddings, and more. Check out Legends!
