Co-owners Chad McCoury and Tim Stauffer recently extended the J Gumbo’s franchise to Columbus. Nestled in a corridor that contains other thriving restaurants, thousands of office workers and a bustling two-day-a-week market, J Gumbo’s is the kind of addition downtown needs. Being new to the menu, we asked the J Gumbo staff to hit us with their best one-two combo. They set us up with a Jambalaya ($5.00) right jab, then laid us out with the Gumbo left hook. A home style soup with deep brown roux, onions and bell peppers, slow cooked for over four hours and served with chicken and andouille sausage, is sure to take your taste buds twelve rounds.
