While in New Orleans this past weekend, we were privileged to have a local friend take us to Mothers Restaurant for a meal. Walking into this place is confusing at first, until you understand the protocol of ordering your food. You basically stand in line at the counter and place your order, pay for it, then find a table and sit. The waitress gets your ticket and makes sure you get served properly. The system works great.
The first thing you notice is the smell of roast beef. Wonderfully slow cooked roast beef. Order a po-boy and wait till it comes out (just a few minutes) and you know why this place stays crowded.
So, today here I am stuck in Alexandria, wondering about lunch and wishing I could go back and get a po-boy at Mothers.
