Creole Skillet

Corner of Julia and Fulton, formerly True Brew coffee place. I have been for lunch twice. First time it was dead in there. Friend and I shared the cajun burger and the stuffed pepper with shrimp creole sauce. The burger is quite good. It's hot sausage and ground beef with cheddar cheese and a sweet bbq drizzle served on an onion bun. The stuffed pepper was very good too. Sides were green beans, nothing special, and yummy mashed potatoes. The lunch specials come with 2 sides and a salad. The house vinaigrette is very sweet, almost too sweet. Second time I went with four friends. It was packed. We were there for a bit longer than my lunch hour allows, but again, they are new so I can forgive. I had the burger and my co-worker had the chicken club so we could trade sandwich halves again. The club was served on a flaky fluffy croissant and just as good as I had hoped. My side this time was jambalaya. Not so good. Dry and friend said it looked like a box mix. I tasted the shrimp bruschetta and the sausage trio apps. Very, very good. The sausage was gator, boudin and andouille served with two sweet dipping sauces (one is a Tabasco sauce and the other an orange mustard). The bruschetta was fresh, had a good amount of shrimp and served atop crispy bread rounds. I plan to try a few more menu items. If anyone goes for dinner please report back. Almost forgot - I tried the duck and andouille gumbo. It was a thick roux based sauce and had good flavor but I just can't get into duck gumbo. I like duck, I like gumbo - just not together.
