Used to be great, now it has changed over the years. Diner style, counter service. The burger is no longer good quality and the oil in the fryer is not being filtered and changed.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
