Fast and friendly service. Great food and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced...not your typical tourist pricing...and very generous portions. Highly recommend!

A little unusual to get a burger and a baked potato, but it works. Potato and burger were loaded with cheddar cheese. Burger was cooked exactly how I like it. Excellent, would go again. Love the location. Very quiet, we ate outside.

Excellent filet, baked potato, salad, and bread. So happy we chose this neighborhood restaurant. I’ll be back when in New Orleans again. Thank you for a great experience.

My bf loves the burgers here at Port of Call so on my last day in New Orleans, we made the trek over for burgers. It's a dive bar dressed in Tiki decor. They checked our vaccination status before we walked inside. My bf wanted...to sit at the bar where there was no social distancing. Oh well. He ordered the cheeseburgers with loaded potatoes and it was a huge portion. I also ordered a fruity rum based drink that I forgot the name of and he had the Bloody Mary. Our burgers arrived shortly after the drinks and they did not disappoint. the burgers are topped with shredded cheddar and they let you decide if you want to assemble with lettuce and tomato. The potato was loaded with cheese, sour cream, green onions, and bacon bits. It's a gigantic heart attack waiting to happen, but you know what, you only live once, might as well go out having enjoyed yourself. Am I right? I hadn't eaten breakfast that day so I was starving. I basically inhaled my burger and potato satiating my hunger. I was headed to the airport for a long flight home afterwards so I was glad to get some food in my stomach. If you like big burgers with no fuss, this is the place to go.More

Came back here today, visited a few years back and now on vacation with a friend. Best burger in NOLA, great service and very local atmosphere. Felt very safe as they checked for a vax card.

Dunno if it's covid or whatever but burgers these days are not cooked to order. Not the same rare burger with cold, shredded chese on top. Patties are definitely sitting around. They're phoning it in.

It was my first time in NOLA and this was one of the restaurants that many had recommended. The food was great and the drinks were even better. Employees were all very nice as well. Definitely a must if you are touring.

After many years of coming to NOLA, we finally made it to this establishment. Many suggested that we try this and raved about the food. The wait in the heat was almost too much. This visit was such a disappointment. The bartender was rude and...disrespectful. The burger was good, but really nothing to make me want to return. An over toasted bun, with a dry bun… really?? The baked potato with burger was an unusual combination. The condiments on the side for the baked potato included a half a stick of butter, a small amount of cheese and sour cream. We can now say been there, done that, but won’t be back.More

Visited in November 2020 (sorry it took a bit) We went as a group and it was good food in a rustic restaurant. It is fir sure a tourist spot and the food was Not that remarkable, however I had a infant version of the...normal drink (I forgot the name). The drink is what they are known for, but I highly recommend getting a smaller version of whatever the norm is especially if your not a drinker. I’m a glass of white wine kind of lady 😊 and this drink was a bit too strong for my liking HOWEVER everyone else who had one loved it! Nice spot overall!More

Best Burger in NOLA!! The baked potato is awesome as well. There is a reason they don’t have many items on the menu. What they do, they do super well.

We had heard from a local that this was a place to go. We tried going during one of our last trips but the wait was over an hour long. This time we only had about a 15-minute wait. They have set up outdoor dining...areas in front of the restaurant but we were seated in front of the bar which was nice. The tables were nicely separated to allow for social distancing. The burgers, potatoes, and drinks were great. This will definitely be a place we visit again the next time we are in New Orleans.More

Have been going here since I was a kid and still leave here in awe at how good the burgers are over 40 years later. This is a must if you want a break from cajun, creole, seafood cuisines.

I don’t think so. Because it is a kind of bar we almost don’t see children but I heard they can get in.
