These are the folks who made "Grilled Oysters" famous. A trip here without trying the grilled oysters would still be good but even better with the oysters!

My sister and I stopped at Dragos for their famous charbroiled oyster and we got more than that, the environment at the bar was so much fun even though the oyster were a little over cooked!

No matter where else you eat in New Orleans get to the Drago's at the Hilton and have a dozen charbroiled oysters and an Abita. You won't be disappointed.
