We always enjoy stopping at Dots on Jefferson Hwy in New Orleans, Louisiana for some good home style cooking! Then we top that off with some of Dots delicious desserts or a wonderful milkshake! The service there is great everyone makes you feel at home!!!

Service is always great but the food is extremely greasy. Stopped going because I always got a stomach ache. Be sure to bring Pepto-Bismol, You'll need it

The parking is easy in and out, the prices are not cheap but slightly above what you think it should cost - however, the food is good and the staff is always very friendly.
