J. Gumbo’s

Earning 39.4% of your vote, J. Gumbo’s was the clear leader in Cajun/Creole cuisine. They pack every dish with spices, meats and veggies, and dishes like the Drunken Chicken showcase their strong sauce game. (Heads up, J. Gumbo’s is closed now in Columbus, but their Delaware location remains open.)

Gallo’s Kitchen & Bar

Gallo’s came in at a close second with 31.4% of the vote. Their eatery fuses an Italian heritage with an adoration for Creole cuisine, resulting in such dishes as the Fusilli Pasta “Liberty Street” style, with a saute of Louisiana Crawfish Sauce. 

Creole Kitchen

Earning 29.2% of the vote, Creole Kitchen came in at a strong third place. The eatery offers Louisiana Bayou County staples as well as Chef Henry Butcher’s Creole Seasonings, so you can give your own cooking a punch in the pants.
