Bubba Gump's Shrimp: "Chain theme restaurant" Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Tip by maestrousmc

I was living in New Orleans when Bubba Gump opened so - as an opportunity to try something different - my friends and I went. This theme-park-like eatery on Decatur serves what some may call standard American fare with a southern twist amidst paraphernalia from the popular American movie "Forrest Gump". The menu includes several original cocktails, seafood entrees and southern staples like pulled pork sandwiches and ribs.

The restaurant is service-oriented and quite efficient. Centrally located so a wait during peak times is probable.

Favorite Dish: I'm quite fond of Bloody Marys and throughly enjoyed their Alabama sunrise.
