February 15, 2016 The Gumbo Bar
Mike took the picture of me that I've got on this blog yesterday at the Gumbo Bar on Postoffice street in Galveston and insisted I post it along with another review from your humble Galveston reviewer.
We dodged a cadre of marathoners (there were 3 races in Galveston yesterday--a marathon, a half, and a 5K) to indulge in oysters and gumbo at lunch.
The Gumbo Bar is a hole-in-the-wall place that serves several kinds of gumbo and poor boys along with other Gulf seafood. It has a Louisiana vibe, including the music it plays, and there are huge steaming pots of gumbo on the bar.
Its the TRUE gumbo which means the roux is very dark and just this side of being burned. None of that sissy pale stuff! Mike had the shrimp/oyster Lil Daddy (which is more than enough) and I had fresh oysters which were just perfect! Prices are good and its a fun casual place that we go to often. Highly recommended!
