The service was fast and friendly. We had a burger w/ tots and a BLT w/pasta. Thick and crispy bacon on both. Tasty and good. The only negative was the smoker at the bar...not used to that.

Make no mistake, you are not bringing grandma to this place. But of the hundred or so dark, stark, bar restaurants in new Orleans, this place is at the top of my list! Great bar food, good crowd ( not crazy tourists, just plain folks) and if Paul the bartender doesn't know about what you like to drink, stop drinking... More

I had a really yummy grilled shrimp po boy here. And the sweet potato fries were some of the best of my life!

Came to this place around midnite after walking on Bourbon street and they gave a wait time for food of 45mins.So we placed an order. After 45mins of waiting and noticing other people getting their food and we still haven't received ours, we found out they forgot to put our order in and when we complained the cook from the... More

Enjoyed the menu, the food, atmosphere service. Will eat there again (probably many times). Good for both locals and tourists. Asked to describe it in one phrase? A romantic sports bar!

Can't vouch for the restaurant itself, we got delivery poolside at our hotel just up the street. As for the food, very good. We had mozzerella sticks, jalepeno poppers, and the nachos. They weren't kidding about the nachos, it was loaded down and very tasty. I had a burger, pretty standard, nothing exceptional about it, it was properly cooked and... More

Sat at the bar. Had the jalapeno crab poppers. I highly recommend them. I also had the gumbo. It was one of my favorites in New Orleans. The place is a hole in the wall but very good. Took a bit to get the food and they were not that busy. Hopefully was because they were making it from scratch.... More

We were walking around the French Quarter in New Orleans looking for a place for dinner. We could not agree on a restaurant. I don't like seafood and my partner is really picky. My mom doesn't like spicy. We were walking down the street looking at menus and found this place had something for each of us. It felt more... More

I guess Guy Fieri would categorize this place as a dive. We were greeted right away by the bartender (I think his name was Tommy) who pointed out for us to take a table. He brought menus right away and took our drink orders. He was very friendly and remained so even while busting his butt multitasking as bartender, waiter,... More

I loved everything served here. I went with 4 people-- everyone's food was perfect and all where unique versions of typical southern favorites but made in original ways.
