Someone had recommended this place for their burgers, so I had to order one. It was a great burger and the baked potato was really good too. Nothing special as far as decor on the inside, but was worth the stop for the burger for sure. Reasonably priced.

It may look like a hole-in-the-wall, but the burgers that come out of this restaurant! I can say I have been to Port of Call at least 12-15 times each time I come to New Orleans which is a lot. Maybe more. I have waited to be seated, but nothing too crazy. There have been times when I came in... More

I'm a local and this is hands down the best burger joint in the city! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great burger. They ground their own meat each day and it's the seasoned grill that also makes these so awesome. Their sister restaurant Snug Harbour (a great local jazz venue) also serves the burgers but I'm told... More

We waited about an hour just to be seated. We got our food another 45 minutes later. No complaints here because the drinks are well made (strong!) and as one of the more popular places in NOLA, the wait was to be expected. Burgers are phenomenonal and the bartenders are super friendly and entertaining!!

Line-up nearly out the door - but if you opt for sitting at the bar, your wait time is minimal. Burgers... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a co-worker who once lived in NOLA. The restaurant experience was everything that she described it to be. Burgers were big and juicy. Staff was friendly and attentive. I can't wait to go back to try a different burger.

We love coming for the best burgers in the city and experiencing the diversity of diners in the city. Have a burger with a loaded baked potatoes and a strong mixed drink while squeezed into the tight dining tables.
