Taste the Real Nawlins Dishes


About Us

Taste the Real Nawlins is a family owned food truck concession based in the Twin Cities. We have a collection of dishes which are all family recipes created by the patriarchs of the family, Robert and Kathy Jefferson.

The dishes include pond raised catfish, tilapia, shrimp and grits platters, hush puppies, red beans and rice, "Sonny specially seasoned cajun fries", as well as "Kats gumbo". What makes our dishes so delicious is the love that we put into creating these dishes as well as the authentic southern seasonings and spices that gives anyone tasting it the feeling of being right there in the "Crescent City" in every bite. The reviews we have gotten since we began this endeavor in 2011 have been nothing short of positive as proven by our second place finish in the “ 2017 Brew N Stew cook-off contest held in Minneapolis for "Kats Gumbo". Taste the Real Nawlins believes that our dishes will stand out compared to others because of the authenticity and the real southern taste...
