SPICEY, DELICIOUS, AUTHENTIC CREOLE CUISINE. THE BEST BEIGNETS AND CAFE AU LAIT IN ATLANTA. WE CATER TO EVERYONE IN YOUR FAMILY- YOUNG AND OLD. LOCATED IN BUCKHEAD, AFTER BARS CLOSE THIS IS THE BEST PLACE TO BE A GREAT LATE NIGHT MENU TIL 5 AM ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
In the 90's, there was no other place to get a good New Orleans-style meal that Huey's in Buckhead. One of the only places in town to get a Roast Beef po-boy dripping with aujus.. mmm! Top it off with some absurdly fantastic beignets - and the meal was complete. Well, the beignets are still there - and great.. but everything else - not so much. I haven't been to Huey's in several years, but decided to go yesterday for lunch (April 2008). I noticed right away the decor had changed dramatically. I am guessing they were under new ownership or management.. I am not sure. Anyway, no roast beef po-boy on the menu anymore. So I got my 2nd fave - Shrimp Po-Boy. We started with the fried green tomatoes. My wife got the catfish. 1) Fried Green Tomoatoes app - 6 slices of tomato for $6. They tasted fine, but for a dollar a slice, I expected something fantastic. 2) My sandwich (which included a side of beans and rice) was $9. It had 6 shrimp on it. Not enough for the $ paid. And they had no flavor or seasoning. I had enough bread left over to put some of my wifes catfish on it and make a small sandwich out of that. 3) Service at 11:30 was terrible. 2 tables in the whole place, and we waited FOREVER for any service. Polite, yes. Timely? Not even close. Overall, I think the place - while OK - has slipped recently. Copelands has better po-boys.

Everything I have ever had here is great. The jambalaya is very authentic as is the gumbo. Po boys are fresh and tasty. I love their breakfast too, the omelets are fantastic.

I love Huey's! We frequently go there for Sunday brunch and rarely have to wait more than 15 minutes. The coffee and beignets are a great start, and the Ponchartrain omelet (spinach and artichoke) is soooo good...one of my favorite omelets in town!

This place is great for a mid afternoon lunch. Not too crowded, great service and reasonable prices. I thought New Orleans was the only place for me to find beignets, but Hueys stole my heart. Great breakfast items too. Look forward to my next visit.

I ate at Huey's regularly before their transformation. Gumbo, po-boys, etoufee and great beignets. I haven't been since the remodel because of the hours so I can't really comment on - but their beignets and cafe au lait are amazing.

Authentic Nawlins cuisine and the only place I know of in the Atlanta area to get a real live beignet. This is also known as a French Market doughnut. They are hand rolled and deep fried then covered with heaping amounts of powdered sugar. A DELICIOUS TREAT !
