I was told I needed to visit Port Of Call for a good burger and it didn't disappoint!! So yummy and the baked potato was great too. I loved the atmosphere and the service was great.

Great food and always packed by locals! They mostly serve steaks but we got the hamburgers. They are freshly ground and taste like steak on a bun. The baked potatoes are amazing. The whole atmosphere is an awesome one to experience when you are not use to a place in a town.

The burger here was hands down the best burger I have ever eaten in my life. A true "hole in the wall" but a great atmosphere. The $10 Monsoons had me sitting side ways.The bartender with the glasses (i forgot to get his name) was very entertaining. I can't wait to return!

I was promised that I would have the best burger of my life if I ate here, and they were right! Big, tasty burgers; big, tasty drinks. Worth the wait (and there will probably be a wait!)

We tried this place our trip to NO 5yrs ago and loved it. Burgers are big, sides are on the side and it comes with a huge baked potato. The place is dark and small and the staff is semi-friendly, but the food is excellent!

There was no wait when we went to eat dinner, around 7pm on a Friday night. It is very small, so be prepared not to have much room. The burger and baked potato were average, nothing special--definitely too expensive for what you get (around $15/person when you add in cost of a soda). I ordered my burger well done, which... More

Seriously good steaks and burgers in a buzzing atmosphere. Table reservations not possible, you turn up, give in your name and wait on the pavement with a lethal rum punch. After 20 minutes or so, called inside for a great meal. There were 6 of us in the party, all 50 somethings, had a great evening in a place teeming... More

I know, when you are in New Orleans, the food is supposed to be all about red beans & rice, jambalaya, etouffee, etc. But sometimes you just want a good burger. We did not find one here. We found a GREAT burger here! I have been to NOLA many times over the years and had never even heard of this... More

Wow, we were told about the great burgers there, and they weren't fibbing. The burgers are big and very flavorful. They have various toppings you can have on them, but I would recommend them loaded with all, it was fantastic! They come with baked potatoes and you can have them loaded with various toppings too! When in the French Quarter,... More
