The food was amazing! Timely delivery and the food was still hot when I opened the container the She crab soup was creamy and full of crab. The gumbo had so many textures and flavors just looking at the picture makes me all over again. Seriously impressed with the food and service!

Mardi gras special
We have been enjoying the creole fare at this Alexandria standout for many years but must comment on our recent experience
During the pandemic we have been ordering takeout dinners on fridays with friends on an alternate week basis.
This past week we thought to honor the Mardi gras spirit with creole specialties from RTs. Easy ordering online and off we went for curbside pickup. We were greeted by the charming NEW owner. She and her husband had bought the place a year ago just a month or two before the pandemic shutdown.
So now it’s just a very gradual opening and takeout.
Anyway our dinners were just great and up to the old standards. As an example the famous jack Daniel’s shrimp were so good. Don’t miss them.
