Really fun, enjoyable little dive bar with pretty decent food also. The crowd was good and the decor is simple. Also they serve absinthe, so yeah there is that too.

Paul told us so. We tried to prove him wrong but we couldn't find a better beignet in the 7 days we were there.

Don't pass this one up by the looks. Great bar with good drinks. They had a variety of absinthe in which they made the drinks the proper way. Being a hole in the wall bar I wasn't sure how the food would be but we were pleasantly surprised regarding the food. The étouffée was the best we had all weekend.

After seeing the menu and reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor we were sold on this place. We walked in at 1:00pm for lunch, and were stopped and asked if my 19 year old was of age. (In the Air Force she can fight for her country, but she can't eat here....go figure) We said "no - we are just... More

We stopped in for lunch as it was near our hotel. We sat out back at their little patio. My husband had crawfish bites and crab cake bites and said they were quite tasty. I had the BLT wrap with a side of pasta salad. I loved the pasta salad. After all the fried food available in New Orleans this... More

After bar hopping on Bourbon, with everything else closing, this place was a God Send offering us a full menu at 4am and the food was delicious. Not just reheated, fresh and tasty!

Good beer selection. Food decent. Locals eat there. Decent food and drink for a fair price. Great alternative to paying through the nose at other places.

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
