Pros:simple, good, fast, cheap, adequate portions

Cons:small, could get crowded

I found Gumbo A-Go-Go in Creative Loafing's annual "Best of Atlanta" issue. It was in a pretty nondescript strip mall across from Emory University, home of the Emorrhoids. With as highly as it was reviewed, I was surprised at how small it was. The dining area was probably about as big as your bedroom. There were maybe four to six inexpensive tables you could pick up at Sam's Club, with some mismatched chairs of similar quality. Some of the menu items were written on a paper plate and taped to the wall. There was a bin containing plasticware and generic napkins. You order and pay at the counter that divides the kitchen from the dining area, and you pick up and carry your food when they call you. Its served on oval styrofoam trays with a matching cup for your self-serve beverage.

I ordered the Crawfish Etouffee, which was very cheap, like everything there, and fast. I got a huge portion of the dish over rice, and it was steaming hot. I'd never had that dish before, so I couldn't really compare it, but objectively, it was excellent. I wouldn't have minded a few more crawfish in it though. My table-mate agreed about her entree too. There were a variety of hot-sauces to personalize the food to your tastes.

I recommend this restaurant, and will be eating there again soon. So if you're in the Emory area, or visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stop by and get a very satisfying, tasty meal for not a lot of coin.
