I'm just wondering how many of you bastids will go into SugarFreak saying "I'm Philo Junius" to get a free bite. ;)
Do you like Huey Lewis and The News?

I sure won't. The food is waaaaaay too salty for me (and I'm a saltaholic).

Hours after opening, I stopped in to sample the new SugarFreak! I got to meet Michele and was pleasantly surprised. It became packed in a hurry.


We sat at the bar and ordered some food. I admit to being a few drinks deep already and didn't get to enjoy the selection of beverages. I ordered the recommended fried chicken with a side of grilled corn on the cob, and it was delicious. At first I thought it was a bit on the pricey side, but it's a very large portion (I took most of it home...stomach was too filled with beer from Hallet haha).


I like the way it looks inside (great bathrooms), and I look forward to going back to try out other menu items when I am a bit more sober.


Congrats to the gang in there. :)

I went last night and it was PACKED!


The menu is expanded and I have 2 words:


BEIGNET SLIDERS!


OMFG - seriously, I could not believe how awesome they were. 


Go, eat, enjoy!


And thank you to Michelle and Christian for opening again!  We missed you!

The new menu is enormous, but thankfully the food is still very good.  (And the Sazeracs are still $8, though they only filled the rocks glass halfway.)  Red beans and rice have a nice flavor without being too spicy or salty, and it comes with a a split, grilled half a sausage on the side (in addition to the sausage on the plate).  I also enjoyed the creamy maque choux side, sort of a NOLA version of succotash.

Our waiter told us it would be another couple of months before the sweets place opens.

Closed again. But re-opening apparently https://givemeastoria.com/sugar-freak-reopen-doors/. Hope it actually happens, unlike Pie vs Cake.
