Visiting New Orleans from out of town? Are you tired of eating at French Quarter tourist traps and want to go where the locals go? Even better you heard about the areas rich history involving organized crime and you want to retrace the steps of the most famous tomato salesman in U.S. History. Well then you are in luck because downtown Gretna Louisiana, just across the Mighty Mississippi River from the downtown New Orleans, has some very good eats and the one favored by today’s West Bank movers and shakers is Thanh Thanh Restaurant on historic Huey P Long Avenue close to Gretna City Hall.

They have it all folks, from an American style breakfast favored by several local political luminaries to authentic Vietnamese banh mi style sandwiches and egg rolls that are to die for.

Don’t take it from me folks, check out the satisfied customer comments over at Urbanspoon. Next time you’re in town for a visit it is well worth the trip across the river.
