J. Gumbo's, 1401-A Sumter Street: September 2014   3 comments

Posted at 12:09 am in Uncategorized







For some reason I was convinced I had already done this closing and some time ago at that, so when commenter jonathan mentioned recently that it was closed, I searched my list and found out that in fact I had done the location before when it was Quizno's, and had *that* stuck in my mind.

J. Gumbos is apparently a Cajun chain with locations in a number of states with this one being the only South Carolina location. It was about 6pm when I took these pictures, and I was still unable to find a place to park without walking farther than I had time to do. I suspect this is a challenge for the spot, though there are certainly a good number of workers withing walking distance during the daytime.

Personally though I like spicy foods, I never really got into Cajun cuisine, though curiously, I did find a great Italian place in New Orleans once.

  1. I can not think of any Cajun food I like, except maybe crawfish once in about every 5 years after a few drinks.
    I certainly don't like Gumbo or Jambalaya.
    And what's up with Zatarain's meals in the box? My wife buys that stuff and I find it to be nasty.
    I'd rather have Rice-A-Roni, and I don't really care for it either.
    If I wanted a meal that came in a box, I'd buy a box of steaks off of the guy that drives around with the chest freezer in the back of his truck.
    And what's the J. for in J. Gumbo's?
    Could it be short for Jambalaya?
    Maybe they should change their name to
    G. Jambalaya's. Ha.. made myself laugh.

  2. The only problem I have with crawfish is that I practically have to soak my hands in lye to get the smell off.

  3. Ah, ole J. Gumbo's. My one memory of eating there a couple of times is salt, salt, salt. And some more salt.
