For more than 50 years, Louisiana Creole Gumbo at 2051 Gratiot Ave. in Eastern Market has been dishing out tasty Creole, spicy Cajun and old-style Southern dishes. 

Carlos Parisi, host of Deadline TV's "Detroit Digest" heads over to the carry-out restaurant and samples jambalaya, gumbo supreme, red beans and rice, corn bread and a fried catfish po'boy. (Quinoa and brown rice can be subbed for a $1 upcharge).

Parisi doesn't hold back his praise. He also speaks to owner Joe Spencer, who bought the place from Joseph Stafford in 1983.

Sadly, Spencer couldn't work out something with the owner of the building, so he'll be moving to another location at some point. There's also a second location at 13505 W. 7 Mile Road in Detroit.


Check out the show below produced by Deadline Detroit's Myron Watkins II.
