Ground Pat’i on David Drive tragically burned down on January 23rd. But have you heard about their new location in Rivertown where the Porch and Patio use to be?
You have to check this place out! Let me tell you why!
Honestly, number one for me was the entertainment for the kids! They had so many activities including basketball, a large connect four game, a toddler sized jenga, tic tac toe, corn hole, and a table of other trinkets and toys like bubbles, footballs, and coloring books.
The food was delicious. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and my husband had a burger. We were pleasantly surprised with how tasty everything was. The kids also devoured their burgers and chicken tenders.
3. Easy ordering:
For now, you can go up to the tent to place an order or you can call in a phone order.
4. Shade and air flow:
Although the inside is not open yet, you can get take out and sit under the tents. They have a large fan that really helped with the heat.
5. Friendly and timely:
Although the restaurant was quite busy this past Friday night, the staff was friendly and helpful. The food came out in about 15-20 minutes!
6. Close by:
Rivertown has lots of other things you can do after you eat at Ground Pat’i! Just one block away is the Kenner Planetarium and Space Science Complex (open to the public on Saturdays). Just two blocks away is the levee where you can run and play, fly a kite, or roll down the hill. Also within walking distance is the Rivertown Theater where you may be able to catch a play after you eat. These are just of the few great things that Rivertown has to offer.
Plans for the future:
After speaking with some of the employees, this location in Rivertown will be their permanent location. I told them about our great experience and that my family will definitely be back soon!
My kids (ages 6 and 2) are already asking to go back! They had a absolute blast! My favorite part of our outing was that we were able to go out to eat and the kids enjoyed themselves and were thoroughly entertained the entire time. Let’s be honest, taking children out to eat can be challenging. I’m so grateful to have found an easy, fun food outing for our family. You should definitely give this place a try!!
