Not much of a burger person. In fact I can't remember the last time I've really had more then a bite of one in the past seven years. My wife said lets go (it's been 8 years since last been here) and so we stopped in. Got to tell you, it was by far more then I expected. Fantastic would... More

This is not a fancy place. Don't judge Port of Call by the outside appearance. This is a great locals cold beer and burger. They also do not serve fries, but they have a giant baked spud, go for the everything toppings.

Well run place - restaurant and bar. Good drinks, and a great, giant baked potato that we shared late one night.

The drinks were awesome, and the burgers were delicious. Quick service, just bring cash for easy paying.

Been here many times, and I will be here again. This is one of my favorite places in the city to eat. The monsoons get you started while you wait (though, this time, we got right in, no wait!). Then, bring your appetite, because the burger and potato are quite large and well-topped. Everything is delicious. A great way to... More

I absolutely LOVE Port of Call. Their burgers are huge, flavorful, are always cooked perfectly, and are covered in shredded cheddar! The baked potato with it just puts it all over the top! Sure, you may wait a while for a table at lunchtime on a Saturday (or, if you're lucky enough, snag a spot at the bar). But it's... More

Hands down best burgers I've ever had. This is always our go to spot after a hard night of drinking. Such great hangover food! The drinks are huge and amazing. It isn't exactly cheap but it is just amazing. It's kind of a hole in the wall, very low hanging ceilings. Dimly lit, again...PERFECT for a hangover!

I'm trying to decide why so many people rave about this place. There was nothing special about our food. I'm thinking it must be because in a city where you can get so much gourmet food, this is simple american fare. I'll never go back, there are so many excellent restaraunts in New Orleans.
